3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Proof. Deep mahogany pour with a small bubbly tan head that fades to a ring. Aroma of toasted bready malts, light caramelization, notes of cocoaand a grassy Noble hop character. Thick mouthfeel, a bit syrupy with flavors of toasted bread, toffee, touches of dark fruit and earth. Not bad, pretty strong Doppelbock. Maybe a touch cloying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a translucent brown on tap with lots of carbonation, a thin tan head, and light lacing. Aroma is a malt bomb, caramel, toasted grain, barley. Taste is much more balanced, but still very malty, sweet out of the gate, with a bitter finish. Pretty decent, but not sure cigar city should do stuff like this.

Aroma of faint raisens. Rich dark color. The raisen flavor is even more pronounced in the flavor with some chocolate flavors. Good quality bock but not particularly special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Cigar City. AHA Rally. 12oz. Pour @ 9%. Color is blackish red. Bocks are some of the only lagers I enjoy. Caramel, bread, cereal, chocolate, coffee, nuts, resin, roasty, herbs, leather, earthy, butterscotch. Good representative of the style. Definitely a lot of resin, fig, and raisin flavor. Its got some sweetness. If you can get it try it, this is clean and flavorful.
