I liked this beer, it pours a pretty amber color. It has a good taste with a nice carmelly aftertaste.

Not a bad beer, but nothing special. A good one to boil up some brats in! So do that.

Had from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Don’t really remember specifics, but it was very disappointing for a bock.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper almost amber pour with a lite white head and lace. An aroma of caramel malt and rock candy. Flavor is alot like raisins or dates and caramelly malt. Mouth fell is medium bodied but a tad foamy. A really pretty nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Springslicker. Pours a very nice deep copper amber with an off white head. Nice aroma of sugary raisens. Medium to light bodied with a smooth refreshing texture. Flavor of raisens, caramel, and bread with some slight hints of chocolate, Could use a bit more hops to balance it out, as there is a good amount of residual sweetness. Clean finish. Much better than I was expecting. Worth trying.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours with a brown body and a two finger head. Aromas are leather and toffee with a bit of a nutty direction. Flavor was pleasant enough, but kind of weak. Had that nice tangy bock flavor and a toffee body. OK, but I would say I’ve had better (and fuller-bodied) bocks.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-brown color with a medium sized dark tan head. The aroma was sour, tangy and nutty with hints of fruit and sweet caramel. The flavor was yeasty, sour and tangy. Rather richly malty with notes of caramel, raisin and other ripe fruits. Very nice!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this beer on 8/6/2005. Aroma is a sweet roasted malt scent. Color is deep amber/brown with good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is rich and sweet. Stating with a bold medium body it goes down with a sweetness comeing on. Finish comes in rich, but not heavy, with a sweet lightly roasted malt flavor and is backed by a mild even bitterness. Overall its very good, a near perfect for Spring. Its bold enough for a cool Spring day and yet refreshing enough for a warm Spring day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured deep reddish-brown with a short, but well-retained cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up well-aged caramel, accented by drier herbal and floral notes.. simple, sweet, and quite alluring. The flavor wasn’t bad by any means, but definitely seemed like it had a whole bunch of simple sugars accenting the toasted caramel at the core.. a little toffee and chocolate sweetness at the edges along with primarily herbal bitterness.. some warm alcohol notes right at the edges and at the finish. Quite tasty. About medium-bodied and syrupy at times on the palate.. nicely balanced. I really enjoyed this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Flanagan’s Liquors in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a coppery amber brew with a creamy off-white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and ring. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, some roasted nuts, with some mild flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a caramel, butter and honey flavor. Finish is slightly sweet with a light chocolate and green beans aftertaste. This is a first bock beer I’ve tried with some vegetable character in the finish.
