2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I bought a single bottle of this as part of a M&M 6-pack at Everett’s in South Beloit, IL.
Pours a medium brown color with slight bubbles of carbonation rising to the top, however there is not much of a head to this beer. Has an overall nutty scent with some scent of wheats. The first taste that hits you is the nutty flavor mixed with biscuit. It’s a smooth, refreshing, bold taste that finishes clean and dry. Decent brew but leaves a chalky after taste that I don’t care for too much.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at GABF on 9/18/2010. This weizenbock pours a slightly hazy light brown color from the tap. Medium sized head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, bready with a touch of alcohol. A lighlt to medium bodied weizenbock. The malts are fruity, sweet and bready. The hops are herbal. Kind of thin for all that alcohol, and not as malty or sweet as one would expect from a weizenbock. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with some alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was an interesting enough beer. Smooth with good malt character and a lot of hops in the end. I had a couple of the six one on day and finished the rest on another. On the second day I detected much more of a roasted coffee flavor -- bitter, dry. Overall good. Not too much alcohol noticed.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish brown with some haze and a small off-white head. Aroma of ripe dark fruit, caramel, toffee, and fresh bread crust. Flavor mainly of dark fruit, especially raisin, with some flavors of bread crust and toffee, maybe a bit of spicy anise. Light palate for a beer of this ABV, with a clean finish. Despite the light palate, the alcohol is pretty well hidden. Not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy brown with a muted cider taste and aroma. A bit of acetaldehyde puts me off right away. Alcohol is hidden well enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is malty, grainy, ever so slightly fruity with a caramel, and wheat note. Appearance is a thick cloudy muddy brown with a very small tan head that is gone very quickly. Taste is plum, malt, wheat, bursting out of mouth. Wow that’s a pretty powerful taste. Slightly dry on the tongue. Lightly spicy and fruity as well. Overall, This is quite a powerful beer all around.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown, thin light tan head. Soft aromas of rum raisin toast and sour cherry caramel throughout. Light tangy cherry and caramel tones round with a sweet metallic smoked fig and raisin-like flavor. Full bodied, soft carbonation, sweet finish. Had potential, but as usual with Atwater, falls way short of anything worthwhile…

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at BT: an uninteresting brew. Lots of different kinds of sugars, big loud malt profile. murky brown pour. Finishes wine-like.
