  • Pours dark brown with a hint of ruby redness. The pour creates a quarter inch tan head that quickly dissipates leaving a thin layer of foam resting on top. Very little lacing.

    The aroma is sweet with caramel malts and molasses.

    The taste is sweet and rich in flavor. Sweet caramel malts blend with molasses and dark fruit flavors with a milk chocolate showing up in the finish. The butterscotch smooth sweetness is evident from start to finish.

    Medium body with a lighter carbonation. Smooth and soothing on the palate with a sugary sweetness on the lips.

    Overall, a very impressive beer from Anchor. Extremely well balanced with a nice array of inviting rich flavors that encourage you towards another sip. Put this bock on your list of beers to try!

  • A sophisticated brew from a long time, well established, brewery. Complex taste: roasted not smoked, malt sweetness is very well balanced. High end of bocks. Don''t know if it is the best bock but it is certainly a benchmark in this style category.
