Clearish mahogany with a densely setting foam of tan creamyness about a pinky high. The capping keeps its weight very well present as it loosens itself just a bit while its consumed to let lay a lacing of inky thick patches across the glass.

Aroma is mild of molasses and mildly roasted grains with hints to vanilla, cocoa, and maple. Gains more stature as it warms, gaining a slight pull into some dark fruityness.

Taste is mildy thick with an easy going melange of red and black malt sweetness thats tamed down very nicely letting in some nice little tones of cocoa, vanilla, and creamed whole milk. Very light and floating dryness of grassy spice fades into the finish as it drys off slowly with a simple yet favorable alure to cocoa and grains.

Nicely balanced and nearly full in body for a Bock beer. More porter-esk and stout-like naturalness with its thicker, creamy, milken body that holds a very nice tone the whole way through. It finishes well with a drying complexity, that again speaks more to stouts and porters. So as a Bock, its quite impressionable.

A very well made Bock beer here by Anchor. Quite drinkable and at 5.5% makes for a few to be easily opened and quaffed.
