3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep red-hued rusty brown body with a small creamy off-white head. Nose is dried fruits, unripe banana, raisins, figs and hints of grainy caramel. Taste is burnt sugar, raisins, bread crust and hints of dusty grains and caramel. Medium body and carbonation. There is something I can’t put my finger on in this beer, which kinda puts it apart from most bocks...oh well, in either case: I quite like it.

From a 22 oz poured in a snifter. Sweet rich fruit and candy aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly chocolate. Finish is clean but slightly musty. Almost no alcohol flavor. Pretty good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Toffee and rich malty nose. Some chocolate notes as well in the finish. Dark solid brown with a rapidly dissipating brown head. All toasted malts and nice brown sugar. I can’t say I have ever had a beer that accentuated malts so perfectly. Slight booze warmth in the finish, but a brilliant winter beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a murky, deep coppery brown, slight head, not much lacing. Nose is malty (go figure... theis beer is pretty much a malt bomb all around), hints of vanilla, caramel and tobacco. Mouth is medium bodied, light sweetness, malt forward (malt backward and sideways too), some dried fruit (dates particularly) in there, toffee, vanilla, pipe tobacco. Quite as tasty little beer.

A very nice bock. Pours a beautiful brown with a white head. Not too much smell, a little sweet. Taste is great, lots of banana and some pepper. Had on tap at Mill Valley Beerworks.
