COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep maroon German Lager has a medium to full body with a smooth and complex malty finish. This is one mouth full of candy, folks!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark caramel-chestnut color with a tan head. The aroma was light tangy malts with a hint of fruit. The flavor was nutty, malty and had notes of caramel and fruity hops. Solid.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Poured from growler courtesy of Paul at Pittsburgh gathering 1/27/08. Very deep amber color, some scant off white foam floating around. Big malty aroma, some licorice in there. Very nice flavor, very malty without being cloyingly sweet, damn near perfect mouthfeel, very clean finish with just a hint of hops in there. Really was surprised by this, not usually a bock fan.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Sampled at the RBPG; growler courtesy of Paul. Roasty grain and mild caramel are the first aromas to hit the nose, followed by a sweet syrupy note and very little hoppiness. Dark brown clear liquid with not a trace of head atop. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Dark lager start, with caramel notes, yeasty component. Raw grain with mild hop bitterness and a light sugary tang at the finish. Decent.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Growler sampled at the Ratebeer meet-up 01.27.08 at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Beer courtesy of Paul.

Dark ruby, off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, grass. Flavor is malty, grassy, and slightly bitter and chemical.

LinusStick (2887) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2008
A sub par dunkler bock. Aroma was weak. Mostly alcohol with a hint of dark malt. Pour was a dark brown with no head. Had a strong iced tead flavor with a dark caramel maltiness in the front. Aftertaste was overpowered by a strong alcohol burn. I would have guessed this was a 8-9% beer.

cheap (4210) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Slightly sweet candy aroma. Clear iced tea color. Some mild carbonation on the palate. Strongish yet well behaved but may have an alky impact that is upfront. Mild to medium bitter finish.
