I'm not in love with bock beer, and Anchor Bock hasn't changed that. I like Anchor's classic Steam Beer much better than this offering. Anchor Bock pours a warm brown color with a lot of head. The aroma is sweet malt. It's very sweet smelling, and the flavor is even sweeter. A little spice, some nutmeg, some ginger, some fig... but mostly, a butter-sugar-molasses thing going on in the flavor. Kind of somewhere between apple butter and a nut brown ale. This wasn't bad but I won't have it again.
