Muddy mahogany color, fluffy, if evanescent froth, dunnish in hue... Aroma is led by cola nuts, coffee, toffee, ..pretty nice. Tasty little guy, nice frisky dance on the tongue, then, poof, she’s gone, to return with the next sip. Big malt, with a definite zing, tingly hops, dark fruit...a Dutch bock?...hey, that’s somethin’, eh...drop me off in Haarlem... Overall: pretty decent. Worth the $2.99 per single bottle I plunked down? Not a chance.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Bottle pours a very dirty red color with a monster foamy head and lots of floaties (my bad). The aroma is quite floral, yeasty, and malty. The flavor is very yeasty, almost salt notes, some fruit sour notes, caramel, with a lingering sweetness. The palate is nice and cleansing and rich. Overall, if I had done a better job with the pour, I might have enjoyed it more.

JMerritt (1894) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Toffee-brown color, hazy. Large off-white head with good retention. Yeast and caramelly aroma accopmanied with some spicy hops. Fruit and spicy flavor is malty sweet. Finish is overly, almost chemically sweet and mildly medicinal.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Dark reddish brown with lots of big fat chunks, literally poured like milk gone quite bad, huge light tan head, aroma of burnt malt and some soapiness, flavor was lightly malty, some fruitiness, mostly bland and watery on the tongue. Quite disappointing

hotstuff (4408) - Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2004
Bottle. Large tan frothy head with fine-medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. No carbonation observed, very yeasty, hazy, and a light brown hue. Malty, caramel, fruity, sweet, and some spicy notes for the aroma. Flavor was sweet, malty, caramel, alcohol, and a little smokiness. Smooth mouthfeel. Light-medium bodied bock with sparse lacing.

thedm (5159) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 9, 2004
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy light brown colored finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a very good lacing and a hazy semi-opaque dark brown colored yeasty body. The aroma was mostly caramel malts while the palate was smooth with a mild hop bite in the finish with a good amount of caramel malt flavor mixed in with the malt in tasty vinous well liked flavor.

PorterPounder (6290) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Dark red fading to brown appearance with lovely bubble action. Frothy, very thick mocha colored head with thick lacing. Has a bit of Christmasy spice aroma to it with some underlying fruit - perhaps dates or raisins. Excellent thick mouthfeel. Flavor has some smoky sweetness to it - kind of like sweet bar-b-que sauce. Slight hint of chocolate and perhaps cherries. Stays strong to the finish. A most drinakable and delectable little bock.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Light cloudy brown. Nose malty, a bit sweet, bit of sourness. Flavor is surprisingly sour, some fruity cherries, then lots of more traditionally bready bock malts, a bit sweet at the end.

YogiBeera (2551) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Dirty hazy brown color, sweet malty nose. Same on taste with rye tones. Very intense. Ok but not that thrilling.

pivo (2641) - GERMANY - JUL 11, 2004
Pours with a large head. Malty doughy nose with some berry. Hazy brown color. Some syrup and toffee. Grainy and a little a nutty. Dry gritty end. Thinish. Interesting, raw and rough around the edge. Worth a try.
