A very dark pour for a bock, almost brown ale territory. Definitely let this one warm up to release the smell and taste. Cold, it is subdued and just average. A nice roasted malt comes through and very light hops. An uncomplicated, but well crafted beer.

Pours medium to dark brown with some reddishness. Reasonable head that dissipates quickly. Nice aroma with good malt overtones. Low carbonation visible but has a distinct bite upon taste. Some good malts come through. Low on hops (Hurray !!!). This is a much better bock that the old Back 40 from New Glarus. Although I tend to prefer the heartier flavor of doppelbocks, this is one of the best bocks I've tried in quite some time. Well done !

12 oz. bottle, my first Oktoberfest of the year (can I call it that, or do I have to say bock?) As Hans Gruber once said, “Macht schnell!”

Pours like a deep amber ale, smell is light malts & caramel. Quiet; I have yet to encounter the bock that blew my nose .

Uff Da is a super-sized Fest beer that‘s begging for a Michael Moore expose. Sweet malts, tangy caramel, chocolate milk, light nuts, a bit of grain from around Mankato. Taste belies the bigger alcohol content, this could get you a DWI in a hurry. Bock lightly.

Good stuff.

Pours a ruddy brown color with a tun khaki head. Head dissipates down to a thin ring of foam along the outside of the beer and some tan slick on top of the beer.

Smell is incredibly bready - just straight up liquid bread. Rich roasted and nutty malts come through.

Taste has notes of nuts, bread and a nice roasted malt taste. Not much in the way of hops flavor coming through although the beer is balanced. Bit of sweetness, but not overwhelming. The flavor is very rustic and earthy.

Feel is a bit thin even for a bock. Medium tingly carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall a really nice bock. Nothing crazy, but its a well crafted beer.

Sweet, toasted, nutty caramel malt dominates the aroma, with hint of floral hops.

Flavor is similar, with a touch of acidity lingering in the aftertaste. Well crafted, albeit a bit sweet.

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.

Toasty, bready, chocolate, lightly roasted malt, rich, plum, some date and fig character

Not a style I have too much experience with. Reminds me of a bigger richer ESB

Nice, mild fall beer. Hints of chocolate and roast grain. More carbonated than most fall brews which adds to the relative mildness. This beer offends in no ways, but also there nothing really going on that is going to make you thirst for another one.

This beer pours a pleasing brown color. There isn't a lot of head, but what there is frothy. The nose has a pleasing smell to it - almost like a barrel smell to it to me. I also get a slight hint of chocolate in the nose. The first sip, I'm taking as it's still cold, has a faint hint of chocolate to it. The second sip , a few minutes later, has even more richness to it - more of the chocolate flavor to it. I have a feeling, as it warms up, the flavor will come out even more. A delicious offering from NG, and would gladly buy again.
