COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-style bock has a robust malt character and a dark amber hue. Hop bitterness is assertive - just enough to balance the malt flavor. Enjoy one in celebration of Fort Worth’s true visionaries.

crusianbeer (116) - Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle from local bottle shop. rated by style. pours a dark burnt amber with about a finger of head. nose is bready with a lot of malt. almost smells like a bakery. kinda nice though. taste is unlike the nose, i actually get a bit of coffee that mixes with the caramel tasting malt, and it has a nice "green" finish that is similar to parsley believe it or not. hops are not terribly present, as for the style, but I cant help but attribute the green finish to the hops, as there is nothing else it could be. mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation. this is a nice example of the style... well done, but to be honest, it is a bock... not really all that impressive of a style to begin with, but this one is well done.

Fratto (2590) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle from Dr. Jeckyll’s. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is a little plum, roasted, and smoke. Taste is smoke, lots of dark grain, a little bite, dark fruit, and chocolate.

Thinking about the contest for the design of this beer’s label still irks me a bit, but this review is about the beer and not some art fluke. Pours a fairly clear reddish orange with a creamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, butterscotch (not off-putting), and toast. taste begins with caramel and transitions into a more earthy flavor with a slight hop presence to it. Finish becomes woody with lingering caramel sweetness. Bitterness is pleasant and mild to moderate. Mouthfeel is creamy and slick at once, very dopplebock-like in feel, with a moderate alcohol presence. Good stuff, more exciting than "bock" makes it sound. Good.

In bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a lacy beige head. Aroma of caramel, treacle, chocolate and alcohol. Similar flavours with a long alcohol hum. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. OK.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Draft at FS FW. I had no idea what I ordered and am honestly not 100% what a good dunkerler bock is. No matter what, this was tasty: nice dark malt with a nice bitter kick.

Dark imperial IPA. Light sudsy head. If you drink your coffee black then you have seen its color. The aroma is reminiscent of some freshly baked delight placed ever so lovingly beside a newly picked bouquet of flowers. The taste is lightly hoppy with wisps of malt...very balanced. A Fort Worth beer that is worth your while! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ah, the ever elusive answer to What is an IIPA? This one is perhaps more closely related to what others think of as an IPA> not that it doesn’t pack a hell of a lot more in it that Stormcloud. I enjoyed it quite a bit - both a Texas Craft Brewers fest & in a bomber. Possibly best effort I have had from Rahr.

Draft at the Fort Worth Saucer. Dark, dark red with just a thin head. Rich and roasty with a little bit of an alcoholic kick. Caution. (#4340, 10/12/2011)

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. The beer pours a medium brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of caramel and toffee malt with a little bit of dark fruit mixed in. There is also a little bit of alcohol in the aroma. The flavor is also pretty good. I get a lot of toasted malt, with some caramel and toffee mixed in. There is a little bit of chocolate and some pecan and hazelnut notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
