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.

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.

12 ounce can shared by SHiG via Travlr at the DC Summer Saison & Sour Tasting, 7/12/14. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malt, mild cardboard and hops. The taste is toasted malt, raisin, a bit of cardboard. Medium bodied, high carbonation.

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.

First sample was a bottle pour on the beach in Cayman, then several cans throughout the week. Brownish amber with thin disappearing head. Nose sweet and toffee malt, some minerality. Taste mild sweet, similar to nose. Minimal off flavors. Mineral finish. Not too bad for a Caribbean beer.

[Can (12oz) shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman -- c/o j&m] Pours a golden-amber with a small lasting fizzy off-white head. O.K. aroma of brown sugar, toasted malt and maybe some fruit. Flavour is malty along with some light hops. Long light bitter finish. Average bodied. One of the better beers by these guys, overall it’s O.K.
