Brilliant dark copper color. Fruity aromas and flavors of golden-raisin compote and pear marmalade on toast with a supple, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, breezy finish evoking shades of cocoa dusted lemons, smoked nuts, and pepper finish. A nice warming bock to take the chill off a fall day.

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.
