From our Brewmaster, Charles: “Mmm…malty. It’s not always about the hops! Big, full bodied, malt forward and full of flavor, this Amber Bock still finishes very clean. Caramel Pils and Melenoiden malts add to it’s deep malty flavor.”
By the numbers:
- 18 IBU’s
- 7% ABV
What to expect:
Mountain Goat Bock is a big, full-flavored traditional amber bock. While it’s great on its own, this mountain goat really shows its horns when paired with braised meat or chocolate. With a persistent head, smooth mouth feel, and great finish, it’s a real beer-lover’s beer, great for any occasion.

Some history to sip on: Bock is a strong lager of German origin. Originally a dark beer, a modern bock can range from light copper to brown in color. Traditional bock is a sweet, relatively strong, lightly hopped lager. The beer should be clear, and color can range from light copper to brown, with a bountiful and persistent off-white head. The aroma should be malty and toasty, possibly with hints of alcohol, but no detectable hops or fruitiness. The mouthfeel is smooth, with low to moderate carbonation and no astringency. The taste is rich and toasty, sometimes with a bit of caramel. Again, hop presence is low to undetectable, providing just enough bitterness so that the sweetness is not cloying and the aftertaste is muted. (via Wikipedia)
