COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leviathan Uber-Bock takes the Geman Bock tradition to its limits; a deep copper color, mighty backbone, heroic malty character. Uber-delicious

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle: Pours a clear light brown with a small off-white head, sweet toasted malts in the aroma, starts and ends lightly sweet, medium bodied, slick mouthfeel.

Starts with a decent head but dies to a thin layer of bubbles. Good ring lace on the glass. Deep amber color and crystal clear. Earthy and mildly sweet with a caramel aroma. Attractive. A good combination of sweet with a bitter hop kicker. Rich like a bock should be. The carbonation is low, almost flat. The alcohol presence is very subtle. The aftertaste is a pleasant blend of malted sugars and peppery hop.

Mora2000 (5780) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2013
Orange with a white head. Aroma is full of grain with a little bit of fruit thrown in. Flavor is more of the same. I get some grain as well as a little bit of butter. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very bland.

Glouglouburp (6075) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
In short: A sweet bland beer with an awkward fruity flavor. Meh.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed approximately 6 months after purchase
The look: Clear golden copper body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is very sweet with a light notes of decaying organic matter. Taste of very sweet cooked fruits, overcooked caramel, soft cookies, marmalade, rhubarb, citric notes in the finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. The malts lack a richness to match the size and sweetness of the beer. Far from intense flavors, and nothing bad per say, I feared an offensive beer but this is just a very bland beer. One cannot hate nor love a beer like this, it doesnít even try hard enough to be either offensive or enjoyable. Another so-so beer from Harpoon, itís like these guys never give their 100%, I bet when they finish brewing a new beer they give each other high-fours.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2012
12oz bottle. Clear brown pour with very little head. Nose is oddly buttery with caramel malt and tons of alcoholic heat. Way too sweet and alcoholic - tastes like 13 or 14%, not 9. Yuck.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2012
12oz bottle from Samís, Durham. If thereís one thing that to my tastebuds seems to characterize all the Leviathan brews itís an excess sweetness. With a doppelbock, itís something that could conceivably work. Nice burnt orange pour with a medium creamy head. Full nose of thick, sweet malts with a hint of fruit and smoke. Mouthfeel is a bit slick and sticky. And the taste is a bit too heavy-handed and caramelly.

mar (4881) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2011
bottle thanks to Dixonian. deep amber pour with a cream head. heavy malts, chocolate, and light butter. chewy on the palate, thick malts, chocolate, and a buttery finish.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2011
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep copper bronze with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet light caramel malty nose with a touch of light fruits. Starts with pretty good fullness and fine carbonation with a chewy light caramel sweetness, some strawberry notes and a touch of mild citric tartness toward the finish. Could use a little more dark malty character and less tartness, but a decent attempt at the style.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle shared at the 6th annual Richmond Industry Gathering, 11/27/11. Pours a clear amber color with a thin creamy offwhite head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and herbal hops. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, herbal hops and a bit of chocolate. Medium bodied. Interesting.

Any beer that starts with the word uber makes me happy. Not only does hte word indicate extraordinary contents, but the umlaut is an exotic creation. Furthermore the label is pretty amazing looking. Beyond looks, the beer itself is pretty good. It smells mild, but has a bit of a bite to it. I like that- the high ABV is more represented by a bite as opposed to simply being sweeter. You canít drink it too fast though! Its best to sip slowly. Iíd drink this again.
