deep amber with small head. sweet and malty with caramel and nut. quite a bit of bitter hops in the finish. there are a lot of flavors going on, and they just don’t mesh for me. alcohol is decently hidden though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yes here’s another beer inspired by the devil. This one’s a couple years old, so it’s flattened out a little and has booze all over the aroma. Also present: wheat, caramel, and dirt. It’s crimson orange- maybe a weizen-heller bock to be precise. The flavor is heller and not doppel as well, only with even sweeter because of the wheat. It’s mainly sugary though, as the high content kills off any banana noted the wheat might impart. Needless to say it is kind of syrupy, but is more approachable than say, EKU 28. It is not the equal of that brew by any means but similar to in character.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle from Capone’s and Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours turbid clay muddy colored with a finger or so of clingy off-white head. Nose is malt, earthy corn flakes, vegetal, and rather abhorrent. Tastes malty, earthy, defnitely vegetal, and not good. This one looks OK, but smells and tastes pretty bad.

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.
