3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, probably around 4 years old at this point. Pours deep deep reddish brown with a thin head. Sweet dark fruits and banana in the aroma, with a hint of spices and a light sherry-like oxidation. The flavor also shows a little bit of oxidation, but overall, this has held up well for a 4 year-old beer, and I don’t mind a little oxidation in older beers like this. Some dark fruity sweetness, toasted bread, light chocolate notes, and a hint of booze. Nice, I bet this was really good at about 1 year.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber with a Rocky Mountain Goat on it. Color was dark brown with a tan head when poured into my weizen glass. The smell was a little banana and cloves. The taste was also slightly banana with some bread and caramel coming into play. Nice beer but I am unfamiliar with the style. Alcohol was very well hidden.

Had on tap at Jackie O’s Anniversary Party. Was actually given this beer for free. That always makes it better, no? I love them sweet and malty so this one was a keeper. Sweety flavors of vanilla, brown sugar and toast. Slight hop finish. Loved it.

Poured a very dark brown almost black with an oily appearance. Nose is sweet with a hint of the abv with some malts. Flavor follows the nose. Big and full with a nice bite to it. Sweet but not cloying with some licorice notes. A dessert weisen? Pretty tasty

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a beige/light brown head. Sweet, malty, dark fruit aroma. A bit cloying. Flavour is a delicate blend of sweet dark fruits, subdued hops and a remote roasted note. Liquorice finish with slight wine-like notes and a bit of alcohol thrown in. Lingering grassy/apple note. A nice beer, even if I found these types a bit on the heavy side. 18-10-09.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured near black with a slight red tinge and a thin light brown head. Aroma has a strong alcohol sent with some smokey malt characters. Flavor also has a bit of a harsh alcohol flavor that overwhelms the malty flavor. It may be past its peak at this point.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Almost stout like in appearance, nearly opaque dark brown to black with tan head. Nose is typical weizenbock - dark malts, bananna fruit, bread.
On the palate is a big caramal to roasted malt sweetness followed by hefty alcohol warmth. Finish is long and alcoholic. Definitely a high % alcohol bock beer.
