This malty, sweet, dark amber colored German-style bock beer is brewed with imported malt and hops. Its uncommon smoothness and impeccable taste make it the perfect companion for a cold night.

Bottle. Nice, bold flavor. Aftertaste remindsme of the old Lowenbrau by Miller. Pretty good for an American doppelbock. Dark color with a nice head that hung around. Aroma was slightly like a fruit cake. Like it.

Skyview (5272) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Received a 12-oz bottle from distributor. Pour a semi-clear copper amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and a film top. Aroma of multi-grain malt, some toffee, caramel, floral hops and a hint of brown sugar. Taste is medium bodied, average carbonation with flavors of multi-grain malt, some grassy hops, a hint of cereal and toasted nuts. Finish is semi-dry with a slight medicinal bitterness.

Pours a clear dark red/amber with a full yellowish head. Sweet toasted malt and maple aroma. Complex sweet malt, caramel, maple syrup, and buttery flavor. Some hop bitterness noted after the swallow. ABV undetectable. Very good effort!

12oz bottle blah blah... I have a love hate with this beer, I had a nice dark stout the other night before this and it tasted horrible, but did the same tonight and it tastes the way I remember from last year. This beer is not that complex, the flavor is dominated by strong caramel and burnt sugar. Still pretty solid and i’ll have some more this year and probably next.

12 oz bottle, part of a holiday 12 pack. Pours dark reddish brown with a 1" off white head. Sweet caramel and dark fruit aroma. Caramel malt dominates the taste. Moderate in body with a dry finish.
