Keesmann Josephi Bock is brewery's amped up version of their autumn Bock with a darker hue and a richer maltier palate. There must be a ton of hops as it's not particularly sweet at 8.2%.
Ulrich Martin is a traditional brewery lovingly restored by the man himself. The Josephi Bock is fantastic bock full of rich malt and fine hops. The lingering finish is moreishly semi-dry, making for a dangerous 7% brew.
Herold Weihnachtsbock is gorgeous big dark Bock, with some fried fruit before the long dry, bittersweet finish.
Perhaps Bamberg's only true Dopplebock, Bambergator is tough competition to Munich's offerings. Much more amply hopped, Bambergator has a firm dry, bitter finish.
Ulrich Martin is a traditional brewery lovingly restored by the man himself. The Martinibock is fantastic bock full of malt and dried apricot notes.
Neder St. Anna-Festbier is a light amber Festbier with a rich malty palate with some grain mixed in. The fairly clean finish is semi-dry with a touch of bitterness.
Günther Maibock is a nicely balanced Hellerbock with fine interplay of rich malt and grain along with ample hops to dry things out in the lingering bittersweet finish.
A collaboration between Kundmüller and Brazilian Craft brewery Cervejaria Bamberg, this complex smoke Bock has a complex array of flavors and an intermingling of smoke and honey. The lingering bittersweet finish is moreish.
Bayer Maibock is a great dry, Hellerbock with some apricot in the nose and palate and a long dry, slightly bitter finish.
Weiherer is a great brewery with both traditional and craft beer offerings. Their Rauchbier is lightly smoky and clean, a perfect introductory smoke beer.
