3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a medium brown color with a frothy, beige head. There is a scent of toasted malts. The taste is smooth, creamy with rich flavors of sweet malts and spices with little hints of chocolate. It has a slightly bitter after taste. It’s a pretty good brew that lives up to its award-winning status.

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a nice deep ruby amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of malts with note of bread and dark grain as well a hint of chocolate. Flavor begins with hay but becomes darker with bread and dark grain notes and has a hint of chocolate in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The best beer I had here, by far - very creamy and smooth, with a medium body, and soft carbonation - quite dry for a bock, with a lot of nutty character - some raisin and toasted malts - a little bit of bready character - I should have gotten a pint of this instead of getting a sampler.

On draught at the brewpub in Delafield, Wisconsin. Pours a dark copper ash-amber brew with a creamy off-white head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of creamy and sweet caramel malt, some flowery hops, some light tart fruit and toffee. Taste is light to medium bodied, some caramel malt with flowery hops, a touch of toffee and chocolate flavors. Finish is semi-dry with a good balance of caramel and flowery hop character. A solid dunkler bock beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a translucent, darker amber/brown with a short, creamy beige head... some lacing, too. Aroma was rather pleasant, but subdued... with toasty, sweet dark malts (caramel, earth, and toffee primarily). Flavor was much like the nose and rich, despite a lighter body... surprisingly refreshing for a bock. As this warmed, alcohol appeared toward the finish and was a tad sharp. Tasty brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served colder than I’d like, but it’s their place, so it’s inconsequential. Clear, translucent amber-reddish-brown in color with a creamy tan head that’s rather milky looking. Sand-blasted etching for the lace. Rich chocolate and toffee provide a cursory of heightened expectations, followed by some sweet biscuit batter mingling with the scent of recently bathed dogs. Eventually, the aroma seems to fall apart and digress to the tune of shower scum and mildew. Gently, unemotional entry into the flavor part of the show. Stops midway, clinched between the tongue and the roof of the mouth, and now we’ve got a more commendable flavor profile. Milk chocolate powder cast over dates. Whole wheat, hard rolls. Chocolatey toffee and a reminisce of melted Rolos, taken from the overheated car interior and put in the jacket pocket, only to be eaten months later when you brushed your hand on the candy while looking for your keys. Touch of aggressive acidity breaches the palate door at times. Otherwise, it’s a wholesome, fuller-bodied performance. Finish comes with almond shells, partially salted, and cocoa butter.
