brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
A somewhat cloudy golden color with a white head. Intense aroma of cider, apple juice, and cardboard. There is a touch of spice to it and a strong sweetness. The flavor is no better. Lots of cardboard and paper with a green apple flavor, a touch of cider, and sugar. Not really even much in the way of malt flavor to be found here. Thin and watery to boot.

Appearance: Pours a light opaque orange.
Aroma: Aroma is bready, with some doughy yeast.

Summary: Decent german beer to stay warm in the winter, but something with the yeast is bothering me.

glennmastrange (2586) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Bottle. Light to moderate of dark bread, light herbs for the hops, with toffee, honey, brown sugar and cola. Head is small to average size, fizzy, off-white with no lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear medium brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes faintly sweet and acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery witha lively carbonation. The aroma is a little bland but the flavor is full of dark Heller Bock sweetness and fullness.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a medium-sized off-white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is bready with lots of caramel, a bit of fruit, and some floral notes. Flavor is doughy/bready, caramel, toffee, some fruit. Has a long, lingering sweet and doughy finish -- sort of like candied bread. Has a slightly thick, almost chewy mouthfeel. A great bock.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Tap at Churchkey thanks to Travlr. Pours a clear red to deeper amber with a larger tan head. Thicker lace. Nose is super sweet. Mild candies and pine needle bitter. Hints of margarine. Taste is blander with tannic apple skins and tannic grain. Sharper mouthfeel.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Had on tap at Monks Cafe in Philly. Nice dark brown pour with a tan foamy head. Aroma of brown sugar. Flavor was caramelized brown sugar, vanilla, nutmeg cinnamon and even some ginger maybe? I dont know. I was surprised at the low scores here because I ADORED this beer. I love the sweet malty ones though and I had it on tap as opposed to bottle. It was delightful!
