Anchor Bock ....

Today I will have a Bock from Anchor Brewing Company.  Twelve ounce bottle.  Their web site shows 5.5% ABV and that it is available February through May.

Anchor Bock poured with a thick, chocolaty brown head - a very rich brown.  Beer color is a darker brown with a lot of red shading.  You can see a small amount of light when the glass is held up to a light.  The aroma has a real caramel/toffee note that gives it some sweetness.  Also some dark fruit.  Roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit and cocoa make up the taste.  There is a mild bitterness, more of a sour than sharp bitter.  The bitter and cocoa linger for the aftertaste.  Creamy mouth feel.  This really isn't overly sweet, but it still seems to me that this would be a good "dessert" beer for after dinner.
