On tap @ Flying Pie pizza in Boise. Wow. That’s balanced complexity. Dark brown hue with a big head and nice lacing. Great Bock. Intense.

Thiis beer made me a believer in the combination of the terms "chocolate" and "beer." The smoothest brush of chocolate as an undercoating with a delightful aftertaste of cloves and fruit. A must try.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Bottle. Pours a nice, dark, burnt-orange with a large, bubbly, white head. Aromas of prunes, cloves, fruitbasket, and a bit of yeast. Good doppelbock density and feel. Flavors of cloves, other autumnal spices, and bitter fruits, with a rich, spicy finish. There is ust a little bit of alcohol burn if I take a large enough sip. As the aftertaste fades, it reminds me of orange seeds.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Pours dark, murky brown with a large, bright, billowy white head. Some lacing. Aroma dominated by cloves, with hints of toffee, chocolate, and phenols. Flavor starts out like a fine doppelbock, ends on an overpowering burst of cloves. Chocolate and plum in the aftertaste. Good, but I expected more--If only it would fix appliances and door jambs.

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Pours a muddy brown. Smells of clove and yeast. Full of spice on the tongue. Cloves and banana are very evident. Some malts thown in, maybe some toffee notes as well. Nice finishing bite as well with all the carbonation going on. No way this is 8%.

Gus (29) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Very dark with a carmal color. Somewhat of a thick, bubbly tan brown head. Very fruity, no hop aroma, followed by a clove spice smell. Taste is spicy with a wheat flavor, with bannanas and other possible fruits. Moderate fizzy carbonation with a mininal bite going dwon. The high alcohol was not noticed at all. Very smooth drinkability after the first sip. This an excellent beer. I will continue to buy this and drink again and again.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Bottle. Poured like the picture, deep reddish brown with white head. Strong clove spice nose mixed with sour (almost sweet and sour) dark fruits and dark toasted malts. Medium body, very bubbly. The cloves are toned down on the tongue, allowing for other various flavors of smoky fruits and grains. High carbonation makes for a dry finish, but there’s a bit of a tangy aftertaste. The alcohol is masked very well-- wouldn’t have guessed 8%. Not my favorite style, but a very enjoyable beer.

Tatterdash (10) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
This is my first Weizenbock, having focused on Belgian brews for some time now, I decided to expand to German ales. Poured an evervescent red-brown with a foamy white head that dissipated slowly. Smell was a wine-like plum and banana. Taste... Hey! It’s like that one I used to have at Gordon Biersch! Dark fruits, malts, bit of spice and banana, so chocolate creeping in. Has a surprisely light mouthfeel, which was unusual yet appreciated and the high ABV is so well hidden it is quaffable (although you’ll want most of it to land in your mouth so it is not a true quaff). This beer is also very refreshing and drinkable, especially on a hot summer night... I like this a lot.
