3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Great Dane - Wausau and again in bomber form. Poured a lovely shade of garnety-amber with a tight-bubbled, smoked beige head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet toffee, caramel, and wildflower honey with peppery notes, herbal character, and toasted fruity accents.. warm, and I really enjoyed it. The flavor found chewy darker grain bread, caramel, and honey at the core, with peppery notes and some rougher alcohol around.. finished with a nice blend of grainy malts and a shot of booze. Medium-plus bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. good balance, but rougher toward the back.. overall a very solid brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Darker caramel, thick, moderate foamy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Rich sweet malty nose, some dark pitted fruit, bready, sweet biscuit notes.   Sweet start, malty, bready, biscuit, and very much a strong Bock type of beer.   Clean, thankfully not mealy or cloying.   Comes across as a big sweet bready, biscuity, and malty beer.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Finishes clean, thick, bready, sweet but not cloying, with strong biscuit notes.   10.1% really?   Surprisingly tasty for such a big bock and not being overly sweet or cloying.   Thanks Bob!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at the Great Brewpub in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, honey, a hint of butter and cotton candy. Taste is full bodied, hard texture with flavors of cotton candy, caramel malt, a hint of maple syrup and floral hops. Finish has a strong alcohol presence with a cotton candy and caramel aftertaste followed by an alcohol warmth. Just what the doctor order for -0°F northern Wisconsin weather.
