A hoppy nose gives way to the subtle toffee and caramel malt characteristics of this earthy German style lager.

Bottle. Pours mostly clear cola brown. Aroma is figs, raisins, toasted and caramel malts, and some faint spicy and woody notes. Flavor is rich and malty with a lot of lager yeast and dark fruit esters before quickly drying out to a slightly spicy, boozy finish. Medium body.

For a dark beer it drinks fairly smooth, Plenty of caramel malty flavors not hoppy or bitter. A bit heavy on the palate kind of lingers.

I was excited about this beer because i love Roosters Honey Wheat. I bought it after work and threw it in the freezer when I got home,(as in Utah liquor stores they don’t keep beer cold). I got it out in 35 minutes and poured it into my favorite beer mug. Even with a tilted pour the whole pour turned to head. Puzzled I tool a pull from the bottle which immediately turned to foam and came frothing out of my mouth and I was unable to swallow as there was no liquid. I waited 20 minutes and the head never settled into beer. I can’t even believe that they thought this beer was ready to market. Very disappointed.

Overall satisfying. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and slight coffee. Pours brown with frothy tan head. Malty, balanced, but maybe slightly too hoppy. Medium/full body, creamy, with malt leading to slightly bitter finish.

Red-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has one dark fruit and circus peanut notes. The flavor is similar with a lot of circus peanuts, butter, toffee and grapes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Sweet, molasses aroma. A little raisin-like dark fruit. Tart flavor; not terrible, but strange and definitely "unexpected". Even stranger that I got none of it in the aroma. There’s also the malt sweetness and fruit, but they’re mostly over-powered. A little solvent alcohol in there, too.

I don’t know if this is infected or what. Need to try again.

Pours dark amber with minimal head. Aroma is dark German malts and noble hops. Flavor starts with some of the expected bock sweetness but very quickly transitions to a nice crisp sourness. Some hints of roasted malts, grassy hops, lager yeast. Dry finish with a lingering bitterness that is vaguely off-putting. This is a strange dopplebock; more of a rich Vienna lager with a pronounced tartness. Maybe infected? Who knows, though I find myself loving the sour aspect.
