Clear bronze color. Toasty aromas and flavors of chocolate dried fruits and nuts, butter toasted grain toast, and clay with a supple, soft, finely carbonated, fruity medium body and a warming, compelling, medium-long finish with notes of chocolate cream pie, watercress, roasted root vegetables, and earth finish. A lovely, chewy chocolatey bock that is sure to please.

Bocks range in color from pale to deep amber and in alcohol from 6-7%. These beers are an exposition of malty sweetness that is classically associated with the character and flavor of Bavarian malt. Hop aromas are generally low, though hop bitterness can serve as a balancing factor against the malt sweetness. Bocks are a specific type of strong lager, historically associated with Germany-- specifically the town of Einbeck. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Full Sail LTD 01, Stiegl Bock and Anchor Bock.
