In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from New Glarus Brewing and the beer is called Back 40 Bock. If you read my earlier beer blog on their beers, you know about this brewery. If you have not, please, read that beer blog to get up to speed on this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a brown color with a snow-white head on the beer. The smell is a hint of caramel. The taste is a sweet malty with a toffee aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable and smooth beer.
Here is description from beer bottle and website (www.newglarusbrewing.com):
The “Back Forty” is property commonly found on the outskirts of the Wisconsin family farm. Here uncultivated acres wait prime for adventure forts, tree houses, rope swings and first kisses! A place to run away, to camp, to climb, to build, to play. Not actually home but not too far away. That’s the Back Forty. The beer you hold is similar both dark and adventurous still smooth and familiar. Here’s a beer you can enjoy without pretense or explanation. Every mind requires some acres of possibility, space for dreams, the great escape, everyone needs a Back Forty.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Ending, this was a pretty different beer. I was expecting something else and I receive something a little better in my mind. This bock is nothing special but it is still a good beer. To me, it is a beer I am glad I try but I know I will not be trying this beer again. Let me know what you think of this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
