Nice beer. Pours murky brown color with a well retained off white head. Aroma is pleasant with lots of clove and dark dried fruit and bread. Flavor is sweet with minimal bitterness. True to style and a big winner for Rahr!!!

Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Smells malty with hints of clove and banana. Taste is sweet, a little fruity, hints of spice, and a touch of caramel. Full-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Rahr & Sons Angry Goat finishes with a soft caramel sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. botle via Texas trade, I believe from my buddy Bryan- thanks again! Split three ways. Pours a deep but not opaque chocolate brown with some floaters in the third glass. Notes of caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, banana, clove, pecan, and earth. Some dark stone fruits, as well. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a malty, slightly gritty mouthfeel. I opened this thinking it was just a doppelbock and picking up on some weizen banana and clove, so Iím glad to see I wasnít crazy. Good beer.

22 oz served in a Hefeweizen glass
A - Pours a burnt caramel brown with 2 fingers of tan head. Leaves behind a few strands of lacing.
S - Fried plantains and pears coated with caramelized brown sugar and a dusting of cocoa. Brown bread crust.
T - Follows the aroma with candied plantains, pears covered in burnt caramel, light chocolate, clove. Finishes with strong fruity esters, cocoa, and a woody bourbon flavor. Very nice!
M - Medium body and carbonation. Smooth and silky feel.
The fruit esters were a big component to this beer as well as a thick malt profile. Good roundness overall. Nice feel and quite tasty. Recommended!

Bomber compliments of TJ. Nice dark caramel pour. Aroma of caramel, burnt sugar and dark fruit. Tasty dark malt flavor with a nice banana ester finish. Slight bitterness at the back end. Unexpectedly drinkable, as this is not my usual style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has an odd cream-of-wheat like aroma, wheaty for sure, but also get a very milky/dairy-like character that weirds me out. Flavor is mild chocolate and raisin. Has a bit of a bitter finish and lingering aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes, 12/18/11:
Served on-tap at the brewery into the complimentary Ugly Pug Pint Glass.
A: Medium-to-dark brown with lighter hues around the edges. Poured with no head, and therefore, no lacing.
S: Fruity yeast upfront - banana & also some bubble-gum. Sweet, but not cloying, wheat malts and a bit of caramel.
T: Banana, caramel, and mild hop bitterness.
M: I only have Vitus to compare as far as the style; this was a bit thinner, but not by much.
O: Really enjoyed this one fresh at the brewery. They only tapped one keg and it went fairly quick: wanted a second pint, but it had already kicked. Will look for this in bottle.

22 oz bottle courtesy of Summer Secret Santa. Pours a cola like brown with a 1 finger off white head. Head quickly recedes leaving you with a thin ring. Some banana and clove on the nose with some chocolate malts. Richer and sweeter than a typical weizen. Lots of dark wheat flavor. More banana and spice. Medium, silky body with a good amount of carbonation. Excellent brew that I really enjoyed. Kudos to my Santa.
