12 oz can with a BB date stamp of May 2015 purchased and consumed near the brewery on GCI.
Clear brown with a decent light brown head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Visible carbonation is very fine-grained.
Pleasing simple aroma of caramel malts with just a faint hint of spicy hops and little sign of the 7% ABV.
Flavor: hops, some darker malts, and alcohol esters are more obvious in tasting.
Feel: Smooth but with some alcohol warming; medium carbonation.
O: A mild bock with pretty good balance and partly hidden alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown pour with tan head, some lacing. Aroma of nuts and caramel malt. Sweet bock-like honey flavors with a lot of nutty malts. Not cloying. Drinkable. I thought this was better than others rated it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight aromatics of malt but there is minimal head and it’s a slight foggy brown, all rather typical. Flavour is a delight, a good mix of maltiness and sweet alcohol fusels to kick things into gear. Decent flavour but still rather simple. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not sure what they mean by bock but this is like fake lager. Amber pour. Some barley. Tastes like stowed away cash on foreign bank accounts - aka dirty. Bottle thanks to Travlr.
