Onslow (1372) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear cola colored brew with tan head. Nice aroma of sweet malts, caramel, nutty notes. Taste is sweet malt, caramel up front with nutty and earthy notes emerging in the middle of the swallow and a slightly sour bitterness layering on at the end. Got distracted and left my second glass out for an hour or so - still had a small head and was most excellent around room temperature.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2016 12oz bottle from total wine and spirits. Dark copper with small white head. Smells terrific. Sweet aroma. Dark fruit funk, tart, spicy. Fizzy, good mouthfeel. Candy taste throughout. Medium light body. Delicious.

J_man (914) - Tustin, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Excellent estery and clean, sweet malt aroma. Crystal clear red/orange amber body with a thin off-white head. That estery German malt flavor pops immediately along with Belgian candy sugar sweetness. Lightly musty, woody flavor follows this and then caramel and toffee sweetness. It has a rich, creamy but not thick texture that supports all the flavors perfectly. Finishes smooth and creamy with lasting malty sweetness. This seems to me to be just about perfect to style and absolutely delicious.

Thisis12ptfont (1101) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 3, 2016
Aromas of brown sugar, toffee, oak, maple syrup, yeast funk and deep malt notes. Pours a murky brown with a thin tan foam. Taste brings distinct almonds, pecans, brown malts, brown sugar, toffee, oak and maple syrup. Finishes dry and nutty with some chocolate notes. Overall, very solid with a medium thickness and body. A- rating.

Una cerveza completamente apegada al estilo. Sumamente maltosa, nota a caramelo, retrogusto intenso y final alcohólico.

scotchzombie (520) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Pours deep ruby red/brown and crystal clear with a fast fizzling light tan head that fades to nothing at all. Aroma is soaked bready malts highlighted by notes of cherry and toffee. Taste largely follows with very mild booze and a clean and crisp malty finish. A touch of grass perhaps. Quite dry and thick mouthfeel. Pretty good depth of flavor. Even better as it warms. Definitely among the better dbocks you will find.

altonbrownd (5415) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle from Perfect Pour. Nice amber body with no head. Nose is malty, toasty and caramel. Taste is malts, caramel and dark chocolate. Molasses and oily notes. Smooth, oily texture too. Good stuff.

Damico (3138) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Pours chestnut amber mostly translucent with a small caramel head. Arks brings dark fruits like raisins. Flavors of toasts malts and dark fruits developed well with over a year of aging in the basement.

Pours a deep reddish color with almost no head at all. Looks under carbonated. Mouthfeel is medium weight and slightly sticky. Notes of roasted nuts, dried fruit, and tootsie roll.
