Bocks

Bock beers play the field in both ABV and taste, yet all the while maintain a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Ranging from a comfortable 6% up to a whopping 13%, bock beers are separated into four basic groups: traditional, mai or helles (May), doppel (double), and eis (ice).


Traditional bocks lean toward a more nutty, toasted flavor with very little hops and are buoyed up by a medium amount of carbonation. Seasonal Maibocks tend toward the drier, moderately hopped flavors associated with spring. Doppelbocks live up to their name with sweet, rich flavors and strong aromas of dark chocolate, caramel and malt warming the mouth with a high yet balanced alcohol presence. Interestingly enough, doppelbocks were once used as liquid bread for fasting monks — true story! Although not featured in this article, Eisbocks top the ABV charts, bringing with them a strong fruity nose and flavor with significant alcohol overtones.

Schlenkerla
Bamberg, Germany

They Say: “Smokebeer from Schlenkerla is a dark, aromatic, bottom fermented beer with 13.5 percent original extract, which is equivalent to an alcohol content of 5.1 percent. No doubt: there are stronger beers, but nevertheless, one should not underestimate ... it can make you "schlenker" quite a bit [walk like a drunk person]. Its smoky flavor is being achieved by exposing the malt to the intense, aromatic smoke of burning beech-wood logs at the Schlenkerla-maltings. After mixing it with premium-class hops in the brew, it matures in 700 year old cellars, deep down in the hills of Bamberg, into a mellow, magnificent-tasting beer, best drunk directly in "Schlenkerla". An Original amongst the beers, even amongst the Bavarian beers.”

We Say: Dark caramel-colored with a loose light khaki head, this smoked Maibock is truly a Rauchbier and is very polarizing. Smelling like a glorious combination of bacon and campfire, the nose is bold without completely punching you in the face. Old World Wisconsin is all over this beer; with campfire in the mouth, beefy and light amber maltiness turns to a fuller-bodied beer that’s not syrupy and retains its clean lager finish. Completely different from any other beer here—nay, any other beer, period—it’s a must-try for anyone. If you don’t enjoy it, use the rest of the bottle for cooking. It works wonders in food, too!

They Say: “You hold a Wisconsin Style Honey Bock, easy going and more approachable than its traditional dark German cousin. Bock beers have existed in Wisconsin for over 150 years. This pale bock is brewed with an exclusive blend of Wisconsin two row barley that balances seamlessly with our special European hops. Naturally sweet Clover Honey was added in the kettle accenting warm flavor notes on your tongue.”

We Say: A loose white head dissolves into the clear golden straw beer, quickly unveiling a light aroma that’s crisp with citrus, whipped cream, clover honey and freshly-cut wood. Touches of vanilla show up in the flavor that overemphasizes pils and pale malt instead of the more intricate aroma. Light-bodied, crisp and pretty clean, this easy-drinking Maibock will have you stirring to get outdoors and enjoy the warmer days!

New Ulm, MN

They Say: “Maifest is a seasonal specialty beer offered in the spring months. It is brewed with a blend of three different specialty malts and the finest imported and domestic hops, in the tradition of Munich's Hofbrauhaus Maibock (My-Bock) beer. This full-bodied, blonde dopplebock has a rich, assertive maltiness with a slight, but unique sweetness balanced by a moderate hop bitterness and a citrusy hop aroma.”

We Say: Straw blonde, Schell’s Maifest was the only beer to feature the classic goat on the label. A touch of floral hop on the nose, caramel malts held the fort in this harder-to-smell beer. This malty sweet maibock transitions, slowly, to bitterness and a faint metallic finish. Medium-bodied and smooth, the lingering beer is creamy but crisp, too. This is an enjoyable everyman’s beer that’s flavorful and ushers in spring well.

Einbeck, Germany

They Say: “This famous specialty beer with its refreshing taste is produced every spring.”

We Say: While the green bottle scared off most people, this Maibock poured a deep golden color with a dense white head and was totally unskunked. The nose is laced with a light white grape sweetness, floral hop and bready sweet malts. Dark rum molasses-like with light pipe tobacco notes, this Maibock has a bolder sweetness uninterrupted by hop interaction. The sweet lingering finish is lightly dry, producing a beer that we enjoyed as the best overall Maibock of the batch!
