Pours a translucent amber with a creamy off white head that laced. Aroma of soft pretzels and nuts. Flavor of the same. Nice and smooth bock.

Ericular (555) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Brownish-red color. Aroma is average - caramel. Taste is sweet and malty going down with a good taste. Aftertaste is bready but not nearly as good.

swigswthwolves (74) - Michigan City, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Poured from a pitcher into a cold pint glass. Smells slightly malty but overall a very subdued aroma. Great dark brown color with a soft gentle tan head. Taste is of malts and nuts with a forgettable finish. Overall good plan but disappointing execution.

Steve2256 (10) - Lathrup Village, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2012
I found this a surprisingly great beer. Very smooth and properly sweet. A full bodied beer that won't disappoint if you like a full flavored beer with a touch of Carmel and molasses. Enjoy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear burnt orange color with thin lacing. Roasted notes with almost a banana undertone. Smooth b on the palate with a little bite on the finish. Good back overall.
