3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of grape, plum, some chocolate, somewhat vinous. Appears a deep dark almost opaque brown, with a small brown head that dissipates. Flavor is of sweet stone fruit over chocolatey notes, with a slight hop finish; good though not well-balanced. Palate is thin and watery. Overall, this is a good brew, but somewhat less than the sum of its parts.

pours dark copper with a medium beige head. Beautiful aroma! Hard to describe, roasty, but slightly floral. Taste is bittersweet. Finish is smooth and warming. Great beer!

"this one comes in bigger than most other bocks, and even a few dopplebocks, as far as the flavor, body, and alcohol presence are concerned. poured a beautiful mahgony in color - thin dissapating head. Quite smooth and sweet. The aroma was subtle and simple, but got better as the beer warmed and opened up. Rich in nose and flavor by mid glass, with a complex warming flavor and finish. Another winner."

Pours a deep amber color with off-white head. Caramel malts, cocoa, and coffee, on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied on the mouthfeel with some rich finishing tones. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep clear reddish, mahogany with a lacy white head. Absolutely stunning appearance. Sweet cereals and fresh-cut hay. Note of honey. Slight bitterness balanced against a chocolatey, slightly roasted sweetness. Big and round bodied, very effervescent, predominantly from acidity. Quite chewy. Fairly long finish. Lighter carbonation. Excellent beer, quite bold. Very well balanced.

Nice scents of sweet malt with some notes of sweet candies. Deep orange and red colors with a bright tan head. Great, rich caramel malt out of the gate. Notes of sweet fruit, and bitter chocolate. Crisp bitterness creeps in at the right time. Finishes smooth with a nice mixture of sweet and bitterness. Nice carbonation, Refreshing!
