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

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.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2013
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.

EdInSaltLake (703) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 16, 2013
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.

(500ml bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, and plum. Flavor of raisins, caramel, cocoa, nuts, and grain.

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.

500ml bottle shared by Gription79
Appearance: Clear dark brown with a small beige head and good lacing
Aroma: Toasted malts and chocolate
Taste: Malty, chocolate with a bitter finish
Nice aroma, taste was bitter and malty. Best of the 3 new beers, but not great. Hope they work on these some more.

douglas88 (6704) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2012
500 ml bottle, thanks to Dallas! Pours a clear brown color with a small white head of bubbles. Poor palate, too thin. A nice sweet syrup and nutty nose. The flavor is similarly full of nutty and sweet candy notes, not hot, almost coca-cola at times. Decent, could be improved with more flavor and a better body.

Gription79 (2409) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Poured from a 500ml bottle. Big malty nose, fruity, slight chocolate. The flavor in all tannin, husk, grain. I hope Roosters works on this, it has a lot of potential.
