3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to beeryum for this beer.
Poured an almost still amber with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of cinnamon, cloves, dark fruit, and a touch of lemon. Taste is sweet and spicy with heavy notes of brown sugar and cinnamon with a mildy vinous character and a slight alcohol burn. Full body with strong carbonation. I enjoyed this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
copper ruddy color, clear and bright. very fluffy & rocky light tan head that lasts. crazy pillars of lacing, light fizz up the body. lager-like caramel grassy aroma. high carbonation, makes it feel spicy, but the flavor is actually a little earthy malt. bitter to start but also caramel malt flavor too. finish is dry & bitter. thanks Beeryum for a hand-capped bottle!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand bottled bomber, thanks beeryum. Aroma was malty and sweet. Poured a nice red to brown with a decent head. Taste was good, an interesting blend of malt and hops, had a candied flavor to it. Palate was nice and even with an ever so light vanilla finish. Thanks Dave!!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hand bottled, Beeryum rocks. This poured a hazy red brown. Rich and creamy tan head. Nose had a yeast-malt thing going on. The taste was malty sweet, with candy flavors, and I got a strong vanilla noe and a sour after taste. Thank you. re-rate: there is a strong vanilla after taste that slowly sours, and I felt a warming, wonder what the ABV is on this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hand bottled 12 oz sample from Lou18. Rich amber color with a small, off white head. Aroma is sweet malts and light hops. Taste is malty without being too sweet. Flavors of caramel, grape and tobacco. Nice stuff.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber color with a small white head.
In the aroma come light malt and some hops. The flavor is lightly sweet and the body is rather thin. This one lacks the maltiness and body of a good bock although it is well crafted and drinkable, just falls short of what I look for in a good bock.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a deep amber body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. It’s slighty sweet and malty with a nice caramel note and an underlying hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth and slighlty dry.
