Poured a dark brown colour with a full sized tan head. Aromas of raisins, biscuit malt, brown sugar, dark chocolate and subtle hops on the nose. Mouthfeel is very smooth, rich in many flavors- caramel, bread, and toffee. Finishes with just a touch of soft bitter hops.

[Growler, thanks Skyview!] Pours dark brown with a very light tan head. Aroma is a really unusual toasted malt, and some chocolate. Taste is the same with what I believe was some wheat also present. Medium-thin mouthfeel with a long finish. A pretty solid beer.

Growler courtesy of Skyview. Dark brown color with a medium head. Chocolate aroma. Chalky taste. Lots of chocolate and dry grains. Almost feels gritty from the grain. Very full body. Quite good.

Just added today! On draught at the brewery’s taproom in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark reddish amber brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and off-white ring. Aroma of sweetened caramel malt, a nice balance of grassy and citrus hops, a touch of raisin and some light brown sugar. Taste is medium to full bodied, light carbonation with flavors of sweet caramel malt, a touch of toffee and some metallic alcohol presence. Finish is semi-sweet, very malty that hides much of the hop bitterness with a nice alcohol warmth added. Though this beer is considered as a dunkler bock, this beer has a personality that is almost in the doppelbock category.
