COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is brewed using the same malt used for Caybrew and CayLight, but three speciality malts are added – a Munich malt, crystal malt and black malt. The Munich malt and crystal malt add flavour, while the black malt gives the beer its unique dark colour, as well as adding a roasted flavour.

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.

Goodgrief (1824) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2014
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.

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
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.
