Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 9, 2009
Lots of roasted nuts and caramel on the nose. Very powerful and distinct. Strong brown colour with a red hue. Sweet malt coates the mouth. Layars of crushed walnuts mixed with couscous swim in the sweetness. There is a tangy background that borders on annoying but holds firm at adding another dimension to body. A nut-dominant finish with a cozy blanket of soft malt parades with length and strength. A very solid craft beer that completely surprised me. Found it in a bargain bin at a small liquor outlet.

Block (2086) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2009
Dark brown pour with a minimal brown head. Sweet and sour aroma. The taste was too sour for me. The malts seemed unbalanced, too dark, and the alcohol seems too low to give anything to cover up.

weitz15 (529) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Light brown body, tan head. Aroma is rich in malts, but slightly sweet. The flavor is initially heavy in malts with slight hops and a hint of coffee. This isn’t bad. For a "Bock", this does not leave my mouth with a dry taste, which is a plus.

BBB63 (6510) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Pours deep cola brown with a fading off-white head and some lace. The aroma has notes of walnut, caramel and bready malts, hint of grassy hops, some corn and veggie esters along with a dash of lacto sourness. The taste starts malty enough but there is also a twang that is not wanted. Nutty and bready with a hint of sugar. The mouth feel is watery as expected. Okay enough and the best of the four I tried but it is hardly even an average brew IMO.

nuplastikk (5612) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2009
12oz bottle. Deep toffee brown, with a decent head. Sweet sugary malt aroma. The taste is reminiscent of a bock, twisted through an adjuncty macro death machine. Tastes quite like a malt syrup mix, no real body but lots of syrupy flavor. Some brown sugar notes, watery sweet finish. Drinkable by third world standards, but still horribly unimpressive.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Found this one bottled in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Clear, medium brown pour with a fizzy tan head, cerealy malty taste with a sour finish. Not too impressive.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2009
A middling dark lager, stale/stemmy hop flavor next to a weak, orphaned roast malt. Meh. Nice malty aroma though.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2009
The initial taste comes on really strong, much more than you expect from the aroma. There is a lot of malt flavour and it leave a bit of bitterness in your mouth. After the bitterness clears you get the coffee and sweetness of the flavours.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2009
From 330ml Bottle, pours dark blown like coca cola. Nice aroma, a little bit of chocolate and caramel. Tast is very malty, also strong coffee and toffee flavor. Carbonation is a little too high.

Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Received 12-oz bottle from distributors sample pack. Pours a clear dark brown blonde brew with a fast dissolving beige head that dissipates nearly clean. Aroma of caramel malt, some chocolate, flowery hops and some roasted nuts. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of light caramel malt, a touch of flowery hops, some chocolate, sage? or was it some dry herb I have to look into. Finish is metallic, gritty, a tad watery with some caramel aftertaste that quickly disappears. I can not remember the last quality craft beer I had from Monroe since Has Kessler was forced out of the old Huber brewery.
