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.

freekyp (1838) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2015
A very earthy version of a bock with some powdery chocolate character and very littel maltiness. This one came across like an average brown ale excepting the copper penny noble twang finish.

Pailhead (6272) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2015
On tap: The aroma is lightly nutty, grain, and a hint of chocolate. It’s a transparent orangish-brown with a small beige head that fades to a thick film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light-moderate caramel and light chocolate. The finish has a light nuttiness. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.
