3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle as and unsolicited gift thanks to BeerFMAndy. Big thanks for this tick. Oh, and look who’s the first non-Wisconsiner to tick this! The champ does it again.
Pours a deep reddish-maroon color with a large lacey off-white head that lasts forever.
The aroma is pretty nice with caramel and roasted malts, slight earthy hops and nuts.
Good flavor, only mildly sweet, with big caramel and nutty malts, slightly bready and toasty. Not too much hop presence, just a little earthiness.
Medium-bodied with a nice crisp mouthfeel yet a slight smoothness nonetheless.
Pretty nice beer overall. Not outstanding in any way, but good.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle from Summer SS. aromas was best part of beer - toasted malts, nuttiness - great aroma - taste wasn’t as good - a little bland with a combo of over carbonation, spice, hop bite at end that wasn’t enjoyable.

Not the biggest fan of bocks but its not bad. Looks good and dark in the glass and is easy to drink.

Clear brown in color... Aroma of nuts, caramel, toffee, molasses... Flavor is nutty, light tobacco notes, plum... Solid bock, but not terribly exciting

Bottle to glass. A deep, clear caramel color with a thick off white head. Malt sweetness, with a little roasted hint in the aroma (with a little metallic?). Medium carbonation. A malty, yeasty sweetness. It mellows a little as it warms.

Look: pours a light brown. Maybe a deep ruby. Pours clear with a white head that fades quickly. No lacing on the rim.
Smell: very sweet malty aroma. Banana.
Taste: heavy malt. Bready flavor. Slight bitterness on the back.
Feel: almost feels like a soda. Heavy carbonation. Foams every time you tilt the glass back and forth.
Overall: not my style of beer. But ok. Nothing wrong with it just not my style.
