This beautiful example of an American Imperial Bock is delicious! It tickles the tongue with a beautiful hop profile and engorges the mouth, palate and throat with a wicked lingering luscious malt rush! under-rated!

He’brew?!? Schmaltz?+*&% Olde Saratoga??? Mendocino?>":+*%$#. What is this beer trivia? Anyway this beer is pretty good. Thick sweet and syrupy. The high alcohol complements the sweetness well. Oaked bourbon raisin and vanilla. Should be higher rated. Very very nice and damn tasty.

Grass malt city in the aroma. This is very malty and tons of caramel. I like this. Almost has a barleywine feel to it. Excellent.

Alphadelic (1771) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Tap @ The He’Brew Bash at the Blind Tiger NYC. I was fricking wasted by the end so some of these rates might be a bit odd. Mega clear, some light hoppiness on the nose. Super rich and full, sweet yet bitter and sooo good.

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2011
translucent copper brown, thick bubbly beige head, creamy full body, medium-high carbonation.

aroma: dark alcohol, roasted toffee malt, bready yeast, and a touch of blown-out candles.

taste: metallic minerality, blown-out candles, very toffee and dark-roast malts, leafy hops, bready yeast, and some boozy alcohol.

Not very traditional, which is not a bad thing to me. Somewhere between doppelbock and barleywine. This has a lot of potential, but needs a little age to mellow it out.

Heavy toffee and maltiness in aroma. The flavor is caramel, sweetish malts, toffee, a mild undertone of hops and a alcohol kick in the finish.

Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Dark with large off-white head. Aroma of malts and fruits (sort of wine-like). Complex taste, malts, grapes, chocolate, cranberry, coffee, slight breadiness, alcohol. A great complex beer, high alcohol too!

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Color is a bright amber with very good carbonation and a nice tight head. Aroma is sweet, a bit roasted with alcohol tones in the back. Taste is rich, sweet and smooth. Starting with a bold medium body it goes down smooth with a rich feel. Finish comes in sweet with a raisin like flavor, a hint of vanilla, some hops and just a faint bitterness. After taste has a big alcohol feel as all the rich flavors slowly fade. After the first few sips, as you sit back you get a warming feeling deep inside. Overall I love it, great brew, its rich and flavorful yet very drinkable and the 10% ABV keeps you happy.

Coney Island Human Blockhead is a very clear copper lager with a dense, yellowish off-white head that leaves great lacing. It has a tart aroma with sweet malt notes. It’s full bodied and very smooth with a clean, dry finish. It tastes tart and sweet and syrupy and simple. It’s rather lightly bittered with a grassy, herbal spice. It tastes clean. It’s very drinkable... but strong.

Coney Island Human Blockhead has a thick, creamy, cascading, tan head, a clear, copper appearance, and some lacing left on the glass. The head really sticks around with this one. The aroma is faint, but one detects sweet beer and brown bread. Taste is of a strong piney hop aroma, which is not picked up in the barrel-aged version of this brew. The drinker also gets brown bread, sweetness, rye spice, and a bit of alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium, and Coney Island Human Blockhead finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable for an imperial bock. Overall, this is a most excellent beer, and I highly recommend it.
