Brigadier (3095) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2006
Growler from hezron shared at Dark Lord tasting
There was a slightly off wheat scent intermingled with hints of orange peels and fruity hops from this amber bodied bock. The flavor was good but not outstanding - I was able to detect caramel, toffee, hazelnut and pine at various stages. Enjoyable but coming from the Dane I was expecting a little more.

Blah overly sweet both in aroma and tAste but worse yet a very fake sugar sweetness that comes off like those crappy pink packets. Avg pal nice appearance downhill from there. I won’t drink it again

tmoreau (2563) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Accompanied lunch on the day before GT ticket sales. On tap at the downtown Madison brewpub on Doty, and served to an imp. pint glass with a clear, amber hue, a modest amount of light tan, bubbles & cream head foam, and waves & spots of clingy lacing. The nose was light grain, a little sweetness, a touch of spice, and light hints of caramel and vanilla. A little better than softly carbonated, and medium bodied, the flavor also presented a low hop bitterness, light sweetness, and a subtle, finishing bitterness & dryness. Food complementary, quaffable, and fairly clean.

(Tap) Pours a light brown color with a small tan head. Aroma features light caramel and grain. Taste includes caramel, nut, and brown sugar. A light hoppiness also comes through in here. Smooth mouthfeel, but could use a little more body.

Courtesy of malachi. Bright orangish color. Huge nutty/caramel combo up front. Fades to biscuity/grainy character, hints of fruit. Flavor much the same, caramel and faint fruit character. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. No hop character whatsoever. If not for color would pass for a regular bock.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Creamy white head, clear dark orange body. Aroma is sweet with strawberry, concord grapes, and maybe caramel. Very sweet taste fruity, again with some caramel. Too sweet for me.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2007
On tap at the brewery, downtown location. Pours a transparent, brassy golden color with a medium layer of fizzy off-white head. Lots of clean, toasted grains with a subtle herbal spicy hop character. A little bit of honey and a borderline jewish rye bread in the nose as well. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Light and refreshing with a clean, dry palate. Lots of crisp malty grains, almost like chewing on some fresh vienna malt, as well as a noteworthy nuttiness. Gentle hop smack left in a cold lager finish.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Rerate from a growler thanks to malachi. Nice aroma with lots of grassy hops and a strong caramel aroma. Golden amber-orange in color with a thin head. Great crisp caramel flavor that isn’t to sweet and a spicey, grassy finish. Really good this time, I was impressed.


Original rating 6/19/05 (7,3,5,2,9:2.6) Caramel/toffee aroma and noticable green olives, weird. Copper with amber around the edges and a thin white head. Sweet caramel and toffee flavor with some tart vinigar in the finish. Sweet and cloying in the back of the mouth.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - FEB 23, 2014
A clear amber pour with one finger of lacing white head. Aroma is very fruity with floral hop notes as well. The taste is a very well balanced blend of malt/caramel sweetness with a slight hoppy finish. A medium body and a great beer to end a week on.
