Huber Bock

The Huber Brewing Company is in Monroe, Wisconsin where it is now actually brewed by the Minhas Craft Brewery. Bock in German means goat.

This 5.5% ABV beer pours extremely dark brown, dark mahogany, nearly black, it is opaque and turns ruby when held to the light.  There is an inch of off-white to light brown head that is thick and creamy. It dissipates fairly quickly but leaves some light lacing down the glass.  The aroma is sweet and creamy, but with a metallic tang.  There is a good bit of malt vinegar in the aroma and some dark roasted malt, with very light coffee and cocoa.  The aroma actually reminds me quite a bit of some Scottish ales.  The taste follows the aromas, with a distinct sweetness, adding mocha, and very dark, dried fruit. It is medium bodied and a bit creamy. There is a moderate bitterness on the finish that tempers the sweetness.
