4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pitch black with a giant tan head. Big sweet aroma. The flavor is robust, molasses, roast malt, maybe a hint of berry. Interesting choice for a spring seasonal; I think I’d prefer this by the fire in the fall. But quite good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Has a licorice and fermanted aroma to the beer. Dark body to the beer witha deep red color when held to light with decent tan head. Flavor has a medium sweet candy taste to it. Also some bitterness that is not overbaring for myself anyway. Beer has good texure mix and is a smooth enjoyable beer to bring you out the winter months. But over the last five years I havn’t experienced a real winter since moving from Wi.

Draught at the Grey Lodge in NE Philly. Attractive beer with a dark copper-brown body and a nice frothy, tan head. Alluring aroma of chocolate, berries, cherries, and caramel. Semi-sweet flavor with clean notes of warm butterscotch and some fruity acidity in the finish. Smells like this could be the base beer for OSA. Very good, flavorful bock.

Pours deep velvet coffee black with a full, tan creamy froth. Aroma is infused with cocoa and coffee. Full nectar w/ residual effers.

Highly recommended.

Bottle from State Line. Dark brown pour with 3-finger khaki head. Aroma of roasty burnt malt, brown sugar, figs, nuts, fried onions. The flavor is roasty burnt malt coupled with some tart dark fruit, figs, nuts, and minor hops. Not as good as I thought it would be, but not bad either.
