Smooth easy sweet bock. Covers up the 7.5 ABV well. Looks great doesn’t have lots of smell. Would go well with a juicy burger. Only down side is it has a metallic/dry finish.

BeerRenter76 (426) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 11/30/14. Pours a deep amber body, nice 2 finger head, little lacing though. Sweet caramel malts, with faint hints of dried fruits, and some spice in the aroma. Flavor is about the same as the aroma, watery caramel malts with very faint fruitiness. Overall its o.k. not much of a winter brew, but thankfully it wasnt offensive.

BrownALEx (375) - Portland, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Not much aroma, maybe some plum or dates. Appearance is beautiful, nice dark maroon color with a thin white head. Taste is bolder than I expected. This beer is just ok.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle: Red tinted, burnt orange & copper body with good clarity. Foamy khaki head settles quickly on top. Aroma of intensely sweet caramel malt; heavy, stale caramel, borderline cloying with underlying traces of red apple, prune, licorice, earthy must, & toffee. Flavor is kind of stale, too. Super malty. CaraMunich malts up the ass. Heavy caramel, dusty toffee, mild earth, apple, hint of grape. Weird tartness. Grainy, old caramel & weird gummy finish. Lingering malt stickiness & clumpy yeast. Atwater, pumping out them gems as usual. Super messy.

rougeau13 (2275) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Clear, dark red-amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel and sweet bread. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, and a tiny hint of metal. Medium-full bodied, slightly syrupy, and a little dry.
