MaltOMeal (1091) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 bottle thanks to KAggie and zinister. First American to rate this. Pours brown with a thin white head. The smell of this was sweet, like root beer with alcohol. Taste was malt and brown sugar. Mouthfeel was medium with some carbonation and slight alcohol noticeable. Not bad.

Courtesy of Papsoe. Dark amber with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and light straw. The flavour has a smooth, delicious (not cloying) sweetness, notes of caramel, malt and a light citrussy hop note.

kappldav123 (4815) - GERMANY - APR 3, 2008
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Aroma hoppy. Starts very mild. Should be a little bit stronger and maltier. Not more than an average bock!
