Made by Indian Wells for Fresh and Easy.

Yes I know a Bock is a lager and not an ale, its what is on the label.

Once again I play roulette with my taste buds for the sake of BA.

Clear deeply brown colored ale with a small brown colored head. Very dark beer and it is damn close to black in color.

Smell is sweet and malty with lots of nut aroma. Patent malt with a fruity aroma. No real hop scent.

Starts damn dry for a Bock beer. Tastes of patent malt and grain with a faint bubblegum flavor. Certainly mild flavored that is for sure. Tastes faintly like a Bock beer but frankly this is close to flavorless. No off-flavors either, just close to no taste.

Mouthfeel is light.

Amazing in a way, hard to make a 7.2% beer with almost no flavor. On the other hand I EXPECT flavor from a beer!

Poured out a dark brown almost black with a thin persistent head. Had a nice rich malt/toasty aroma. Very light mouth feel with a crisp roasty finish due to the high carbonation. Little hop presence. I have not had many double bocks, but did enjoy this very much. At 7.2% ABV it is nicely balanced with an overpowering alcohol taste.
