ok, ill admit. i picked this up as part of a mixed sixer due to the sweet ass name and cool bottle label. plus i figured i might as well throw a lager in the sixer to balance out all of the ales already there. this was better than i expected. definate carmel and some molases. this was good and i am definately saving the bottle.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy copper with a small light tan head. Sweet caramel and molasses, quite sweet. Flavor is similar but has some odd metallic components that do not jive with all of that sweetness. Stick medium body. Harsh finish. Not so great.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle-thanks to JPDISPO for this suprise (I wasnt expecting much). Pours a deep copper/amber hue with 1/2 inch tan head. Very nice sweet, malty, sugary aroma with a noble hop bite. flavros are sugary, notes of grape, cherries, noble hops, caramel malts. I think this was a good example of a bock. my only problem with this one was the start of the flavors. It had a metalic start, but other than that, it was damn good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to JPDIPSO for this one. Pours deep amber with an off-white/almost tan head. Aroma of Concord grapes, malt, hops, fruit, melon, cherries (I thought the aroma of this one was superb). Tastes very malty, fruity, with hints of Concord wine, caramel, multi-faceted fruit. Finishes malty, with a semi-dry, crispness. Medium mouthfeel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Small lid of light beige bubbles atop clear copper colored liquid. Very sweet aroma with caramel, toasted malt and a touch of vanilla and alcohol. Sweet fruity flavors. light raspberries and pears. Not very becoming for a bock. Finishes with a touch of bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Seems simple.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber/orange color,small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was malty and maybe a bit of fruit,a slight hint at the alcohol.Light malt flavor with a hint of possibly orange or lemon,mild hops and the alcohol seems to stay fairly well hidden with just a faint coming through at best.Nice smooth brew that would work well for a lawnmower brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very nice dark amber color, but absolutely no head when poured. Very thin taste for a bock. Not great. Kind of reminds me of a story of the rabbit and the mole, all the mole wants to do is go to his job at the rendering plant and drink at the bar. The rabbit on the other hand has ambitions of his own, seemingly adept at manuvering the obstacle course, that is.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma, thin but malty. The color is awesome, a beautiful dark copper. No head to speak of, though. Flavor is fairly weak, but what's there is spot-on. If it were as full-bodied as a bock should be, this would be a wonderfully malty brew with just enough hops to make it interesting. As it is, it's probably not worth too much of your time, but I picked it up on sale and am happy with the purchase.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I really wanted to like a beer with this name. Aroma is malts and vanilla. Flavour is thin and wattered down.
