Poured into a pilsener glass, the appearance was a semi-dark amber color with a finger's worth of quickly dieing foamy white head. Sliding stringy lace.
The aroma had some strong sweet bready malts, light nuts, earthy to grassy hops and a mild earthy/semi-spicy hoppiness.
The flavor was moderately sweet with the malts take the foreground while the spiciness sat a bit further back. Delicate malty dry sweet aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good. Semi-smooth sort of bready malty sort of finish.
Overall, pretty nice bock that I would have again if I could get it.

L: Pours brilliant amber with red highlights under a ½” white foam collar that provides light lace.
S: Primarily fresh whole grain bread aromas with some spicy hops.
T: Starts bready sweet with traces of caramel and malt spice leading to a moderate bitter finish and a slight tangyness.
F: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: An easy to drink bock.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a short-lived off-white head and crazy carbonation. Aroma is of fermented apple juice and hint of peppery hops. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is caramel malt and peppery hops. Finish is long and spicy. There is something wrong with this bottle.

A: The crown has some blistering under the plastic so this might be an old bottle. A medium copper with a slight haze. The light tan head dissipates after a minute, but that might be a result of this glass having gone through the dishwasher with the jet-dry, surfactants and all.

S: Moderate malt and dark fruit aromas of raisins and plums with moderate crust bread melanoidins. No hops and no alcohol aromas.

T: Moderately-strong malt flavor with moderate crusty bread and plum flavors. There is a moderately light hops bitterness that is about about even with the sweetness putting the balances in the middle. The finish is off dry and the aftertaste is of malt and dark bread crust. There are no signs of oxidation but the flavors seem flat.

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: A middle of the road bock with muted flavors that might be due to this being a little old. The balance between the bitterness and the malt sweetness is nice.
