12 oz bottle poured into a New Glarus pilsner glass.
No date or info.

A - Heavy carbonation streams through this beautifully clear copper-colored brew, feeding it's lasting ivory head that shrouds the glass in heavy lace. Uff-da is picture perfect!

S - Hearty maltiness offers rich aromatics of baked bread and nuttiness followed by dry toast and a slathering of sweet caramel

T - Chewy caramel cubes offer sweetness through this densely malty brew that leaves heavenly baked bread and toasted wheat and nut bread lingering on the tongue despite it's otherwise clean lagered characteristic.

M - Even though the beer's heavy carbonation is seen streaming through the glass, Uff-da is ultra-smooth; almost creamy in texture, which goes perfectly with it's fuller body and clean finish that leaves light malt traces on the tongue.

O - New Glarus' Dan Carey is a brewing genius, especially when it comes to German style beer, which is no surprise considering his time spent across the pond. Uff-da is a pretty simple bock overall but it's lack of defect and flourishing bready and nutty malt profile make it damn delicious. This beer is one of the best examples of the style you can lay lips on.

Enjoyed at 48F as recommended by the brewery. It's roasty, malty, very mild (no ABV on the bottle, but tastes lower than 6.7%). A really good bock and great fall beer for Wisconsin.

A very dark amber topped with a very sticky tan lacing.
Aromas are caramelly toasted malt.
Lots of flavor....rich, sweet toasted malt, caramel, vanilla....very light hops on the end to balance.
Aftertaste is surprisingly clean and fresh....no sticky cloying...no leftover sugars...just the memory of caramel candies.
Mmmm...
I love it.
Once again...thank you so much Steve for this opportunity.
I think it is becoming obvious that i need to move eastward.

Pours a dark brown with red highlights, clear with a tan head, really nice. Good lacing as it goes down.

The nose has deep malt and chocolate, a bit of alcohol and a bit of sweetness.

Great malty taste with chocolate hints, finishes both dry and sweet, don't know how they do that. Some fruitiness, deep cherries, plums, lovely. No sign of any hops, just a nice malt bomb. One of my favorites. Sorry to see this is going away, storing some in my vault.

Slick and creamy mouthfeel, heavy but not too. Very smooth, very drinkable, with dinner or afterwords, your choice. Can't think of a Bock I like better, thanks New Glarus.

Re-review (3-18-04)-opinion remains the same..almost borders on dopel territory...very sweet, bready..tasty...one of my favorites

(3-31-02)Reddish brown in color..creamy head that retains itself in a very small way throughout. This is a great one on the nose..chocolate and caramel aroma...Taste mimicks the aroma. Perhaps this beers top characteristic is its mouthfeel. It just feels like a good bock should feel like going down...It seems as more and more breweries add "bocks" to their lineup, more and more are tasting very watered down..Not this one. This a regular bock with character. For a regular ol bock this one doesn't have many peers in my opinion.

I got this brew in a trade with eyncognito, Thanks Ian!

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - deep brown color with a tan head that settled to layer leaving a whole bunch of lacing.

S - sweet/roasted caramel malt aroma.

T - sweet caramel and roasted malty flavor is what this brew is all about. Higher abv can't be detected at all in the rich flavor.

F - medium/full bodied, smooth and creamy feel.

D - hell yeah, this is a delightful bock beer.
