COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Neshaminator This is our take on a German wheat bock, but with a small twist. We brew this 8.5% holiday offering with orange blossom honey and keeping true to the style, over 50% wheat along with dark Munich malt, a hint of Chocolate malt, and German Hallertau and Tettnanger hops. While most German bock beers named with the -or ending are traditional double bock lagers, we decided to break from tradition a bit with not only the name of this beer, but the use of orange blossom honey as well. Prost!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5340) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a murky dark brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was dryish, woody and nutty with a touch of dark fruits. The flavor was dryish, woody and a touch wheaty with a notes of cardboard, pepper, almost rye, and hints of dark fruits and smoke. Long dry wood and rye finish. Medium body. Ok.

EithCubes (5207) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bomber. Nose of rich and sticky caramel, really sickly sweet candy, with wheat, yeast, and a healthy dash of spaghetti sauce. Pours dark, opaque with volume, supports a dense, rocky tan head. Way sweet taste with light bread and fruit, really working a nice date-and-cherry-dipped pumpernickel, very low bitterness with some brown sugar and beautiful toasted bread crusts. Jammy orange marmalade undercurrent and spicy hops, even has some light diacetyl showing. Its getting a nice effect from the Munich, that hollowed-out lager middle, even if everything else is screaming "ale! ale!" Sticky lips and fullish body, alcohol utterly (and dangerously) hidden. Im inclined to be against this kind of take because of its heavy sweetness, but the flavors are fun and the intensity plays well with food.

dmac (4558) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2013
22oz bomber from Crossroads. Poured a muddy dark brown with an average sized foamy beige head, sort of ugly. Aroma is nice, chocolate, fruity, slight hint of sour chocolate, wet nut shells, bread dough, brown bread and a hint of sweetness and some alcohol. Fuller bodied with average to stronger carbonstion and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of bad chocolate, some nuts, bread dough, touch of dark fruit, wet wood, alcohol. Not bad, this brewery isnt doing anything mind blowing but most offerings have been very decent.

ben4321 (4552) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow, 3/9/15

Aroma: A very heavy sweet aroma, raisin, fig, a little molasses, nutty nots, and some wheat
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with a reddish hue, creamy beige head, and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is along the same lines, heavy sweet/fruity up-front, finishes on the nutty side
Palate: Drinks nicely, cloying, but not as cloying as youd guess, average carbonation, sticky finish
Overall Impression: I just realized I used the phrase "finishes on the nutty side" in my flavor review, which sounds like a road comic describing his mother-in-law. As for the beer, the cloyingness is held just enough in check to make this beer pretty enjoyable. Im actually surprised I liked it as much as I did considering that Im not usually a fan of this sweetness level without some balance, but this is a pretty nice beer. Even if it isnt the perfect beer for me personally, I gotta bump the overall a bit due to the nice complexity.
