Strong dark German wheat beer. This medium-full bodied brew has the clove-like character of a light German Wheat beer (Hefeweizen), the maltiness of a dark German Wheat beer (Dunkelweizen)-a balance of soft bread-like and rich caramel toatiness with the richness and strength of a Bock beer. Bockbiers were brewed by monks for fortification during times of fasting.

Pours darker than I anticipated. This is a malty beer with a licorice flavor to it. What can I say, this is a pretty average beer. On tap at Allegheny 6 Pack.

Has the right flavors. Tasty. Body is a little watery. Overall pretty solid.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark brown color with orange highlights and large foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was toffee, nut, coffee, maple syrup and a hint of vague dry spices. The flavor was tangy, toasty and nutty with fairly strong toffee and hints of tobacco, maple and vague spices. Medium length toasty nut and toffee finish. Medium body. Ok.
