Tallahassee, Fl.- ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour, quickly fading off-white head. Aroma is sweet with some toffee and baked brown bread. Flavor is full bodied with some toffee accents, a touch of vanilla, some dates and raisins. Sticky enough mouthfeel. Not a bad little bock.

Bottle from Save On. Light brown amber with flat head and a little lace. Mild caramel and fresh herb aroma. Mild toasty caramel with grassy and minerally medium bitter herbal finish. Medium body. Medium carbo accentuates minerally flavor. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bad label, squat 12oz bottle. Murky, tea-colored beer. Thin, milky head without much cling. Cereal-grapey aroma - reminds me of raisin bran. A burley graininess to it, like a hearty bowl of oatmeal. Nicely bitter. Some dark dried fruits - dates, raisins, prunes. Muted choco-fruit in the finish. Slightly heavy body. I liked this more than I thought I would. ABC, Betton.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2/17/2011: Rivertown Brewing Co. Bock Beer... Aroma: Funky hoppiness paired with sweat and mustiness (reminds me of Heineken out of a green bottle); POPCORN. Appearance: Deep golden color with a dense, lasting, thick beige-colored head; the beer has a clean and clear complexion. Flavor: Hmmm... Doughy, pale malts with a decent level of sweetness followed by floral (perfume) and grassy hops; crisp finish and mild to moderate bitterness that dances on the tongue and then lingers. Palate: Medium body; smooth mouthfeel with just a little bit of heft. Overall: I’m very unimpressed; if Heineken came in a bock version, I think it would taste like this beer; looking at the other ratings for this beer, it must be much different and much better on tap!
12 fl. oz. bottle (twist-off cap) from Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #22 for this beer.

Quite strong initially but mellows as the session continues. Goes down pretty easy. OK with me. You’d never know it was over 5%!

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent orangish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells malty and roasty. Tastes like it smells with less roast. Average on the palate. Alright.

on tap at Buckeye, the caramel malt overpowers this whole beer, no hops, just caramel sweetness, really really unbalanced

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear medium amber with a fast disappearing head and isolated specks of lace. The taste is caramel and more caramel with very little carbonation. It’s only early May, but this may be past its best-by date. Not very impressive.
