4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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!

Nice dark amber color with a short but nice head, minor lacing. Toast and caramel aroma is interesting and unique. Taste has a malt sweetness backed up by a nice mellow bitterness. Finishes clean and crisp. I like this brew a lot.

Flavor is malt, chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, and has a good amount of fiz. Has a medium amount of hop that gives it a good bite. Color is dark brown with a red hue. And it comes in an awesomely huge mug. Keep ’em coming.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2012 Great smell. The aroma of this beer got me going. I couldn’t wait to drink it. What an interesting taste almost a grape taste. It went down smooth and left very little after taste.

Tap at brewpub, Wichita, KS. Pours deep amber with an aroma of faint nut. Flavor is a nice caramel malt in the foreground with a nice molasses finish. A bit thin on the tongue. Well-made bock; nice balance of flavors. I’ll have this again next time I’m in Wichita.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Cedar Rapids. Pours mahogany with white head. the aroma is malty with some cookie dough, dark caramel, toast, a bit of an earthy hint, even a bit of burnt biscuit (something I normally associate with porters). Flavor is dark toast with some nice mellow toasted malt, some ash and earthy hops, and a clean finish. I was surprised this had such a low rating... I didn’t think it was bad at all.
