Frank (3812) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Red brown with an off-white head that leaves little rings of lace. The nose here is sweet. Aroma is sweet w/ a bit of breadiness to it. Taste is raisin and plum, caramelly w/ a slight twinge of sourness. Medium bodied w/ low carbonation suits the style. Slightly sticky sweetness lingers in the finish. Not the best example of the style.

Bottle; pours a muddy dark auburn color with a smallish tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel, bread, molasses, with a general sweetness to it. Flavor was quite tasty; dominated by caramel, dark fruit and molasses. Some nuttiness too. An earthy finish, but not hoppy in any sense. Palate was a twinge thin, but it worked. Rather long after taste. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

Out of the bottle from Whole Foods. Nice reddish color with a tinge of brown. Big, chunky light brown head. Huge malt nose that leaps out of the glass. Great malt flavor on the front follows through the entire taste with cola on the end. Not much bitterness here, which is fine.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2009
Pours a hazy dull brown with a thinner creamy frothy beige head. Aroma is very grassy, munich malts, a bit of chocolate, malt flour, quite sweet, applely, some fruity esters, rich. Flavor is much the same, smooth chocolate, hay, grassy, very sweet, apple/acetaldehyde is somewhat off-putting, makes it unnecessarily sharp, tootsie-roll, nicely doughy, quick but rich finish with a chewy chocolate aftertaste. Medium bodied, creamy/milky sensation but still glassy hard candy like with fine sizzling sharp carbonation. The tart green apple ruins what could be a great beer.

after4ever (7272) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2009
500, capped. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a dense, creamy, stacked and tapioca-like tan head. Big brown bread and graham cracker nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb, a little on the watery side but well within the bounds of a bock. Mild brown bread and graham cracker mid palate. Eminently drinkable.

AmEricanbrew (6607) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Brilliant copper color with a tan head. Malty sweet pumpernickel bread aroma with brown sugar. Smooth medium body. Sweet yeasty, nutty pumpernickel bread flavors with mild alcohol to finish.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Bottle from Market of Choice. Poured medium brown with a small tan head. Aroma is full of caramel and fruit, as is the flavor. Quite flavorful, slightly effervescent. Solid beer.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Not impressed. Brown pour...off white head. Roasted malt with the aroma of dark fruits. Sweet malt taste with raisins coming through.

obguthr (5263) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Roasted barley and soy sauce nose. Watery clear brown pour, medium white head. Thin body. Roasted barley and raisins and maybe a little fig in the end. Drinkable and the flavors are there, but a rather weak attempt. Alcohol not noticeable, but then again, it’s only a 6.6% bock.

Ungstrup (32908) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2009
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, bread, caramel, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel as well as medium notes of sweet malt and bread. The alcohol is felt on the palate, and the finish is dry.
