2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Community Food Co-op - N Forest St, Bellingham, WA
Darker shade of blond, clear, with medium sized compact head. The aroma is light, there is some fusel and plastic. Strong body, with round mouthfeel, but also a bit oily; there is a light fruity touch but also some chemicals; it’s fairly sweet, and the alcohol gives a quite boozy feeling.
Big Heller Bock. Weird, excessive, but not as terrible as expected; no need to try this again.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber with a decent foamy off-white head. Aroma is rather sweetly grainy. Full bodied with foamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet malt with some light fruit. It’s not sticky, so it’s not unpleasant. There seems to be a little bitter. If finishes just mildly sweet. The heat is fairly well hidden. However, the alcohol level does seem to thin the flavors toward the end of a sip.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
16.9oz bottle, shared. This bottle says "L.92312" on the back. My label was upside-down vs the one pictured here, with the "AFTER" on top. Clear orange color. Minimal white head. Syrupy honey herbal medicinal flavor. Definitely a kick, significant bite. Big caramel malt. Cloyingly sweet. All this, with just teeny tiny sips. Bigger body. Kind of a sharp carbonation. Terrible astringent bitter aftertaste. Worse than medicine. Like straight fuel, just nauseating. Wow, it’s almost impressive how bad this manages to be. Drain pour

Bottle at Andy’s for New Years Eve. Pours a clear gold (triple bock, what?) with a thin white head. Grainy and papery on the nose, rather sweet. Papery, grainy, sweet and weird. Warm sweet alcohol. Grain and paper all through it. Meh.
