Really nice deep molasses brown pour with a thin layer of khaki head. Sharp aroma of caramel malt, sweet grainy malt, toffee, cream, clove, oak and a bit of raspberry perhaps. Average carbonation, thick creamy mouthfeel, effervescent finish. Sweet strong malt flavor with tingly rye, toffee, clove and banana. Strong German sweet malt bill with rye. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a dingy medium brown with a thick but small head. Aromas of caramel/toffee sweetness and a hint of banana. Flavor is sweet with toffee-like malt up front but then transitions to bananas and then a spicy finish that has a lingering bitterness. Interesting and decently put together.

Brown color . Thin , off-white head . Aroma of caramel malt , banana, clove and hint of spices . Malty , with notes of caramel and fruits. Decent beer , although it's weird for double bock to smell like weizen.

Pours brown with thin off white head. Light malty nose. Crisp malt profile with mild hop bite. This is a nice brew, not too heavy, crisp but with a nice balance between malt and hops.

Pour is a muddy river water brown with a small white head. Aroma is sweet brown sugar with some dark fruit. Flavor is not sweet at all. Some spicy rye notes are detected but this finishes with some minor caramel malt. Smells like a dopplebock but tastes more like a vienna.

it has good flavor and body going for it. a little sweet giving a bit of a banana toffee or bubble gum sense first out of bottle. but that dissapates and there is a bit of rye spice some clove and perhaps red pear for balance. finish dry as stated. gonna have to have some more. nice substative mouthfeel ties things together well. decently malty.
