3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Classic City Brewfest 2016. Pours a hazy brownish red with thin tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of burnt caramel and vanilla notes over a hint of fruity yeast. Taste is more toward the caramel malt and clean finish. I’m almost positive this was barrel aged but my notes don’t say so, otherwise a decent bock.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate complex toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate dark sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 On tap at the brewery (2X). IBU = 35.
Excellent clarity in the golden body; good head and very good lacing.
Aroma: spicy baked bread. Herbal hops
This is malty for style (the "imperial" part?) despite a normal hop load. Hints of toffee and baked fruits.
O: a fine looking, very malty maibock.

Tap. Dark amber in color. Aroma was roasted cereal. Taste was a tad more hops then one would expect, toast and grains almost like a dark Mai Bock.

Had this in Chattanooga at a little place near the choo choo. Not bad. Better than some of the ratings, I thought. Pours amber brown. Caramel and sweet. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, appetizing chestnut with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, light tan head. Malty aroma has subtle apple, cloves and nutty notes. Flavor has a strong woody note plus malty, fruity, nutty, yeasty and cloves tones. Firm texture has good body, though not too much fizz. Pardon me boys, is that the Chattanooga brew-brew?

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Amber-brown body with good clarity underneath a slim, whitish head.
Smell: Baloney aroma fr--wait, baloney?! That’s a first for me.
Taste: A little sugar on the tip of the tongue, some weak toasty, grainy notes, and, then, an odd, uncomfortable taste of stale baloney kicks in. I’ve come across some whacky, wild flavors in beer, but never this. Never. I’m lost as to how they managed this.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Slight tongue-coating quality to the mouthfeel.
Overall: You know, it’s always nice to see a new, up-and-coming brewery, but with so many breweries on the playing field and more coming each and every day, CBC really needs to step it up (and fast).
