Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Dark Cinnamon Brown in color, decent head, aroma slight, carbonated. good. Doesn’t lose taste or go flat. Cost me $10 for a bottle, but it was worth it.

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2006 Superlatives only. Phenolic banana/clove yeast aromas reminiscent of hefeweizen married to rich, chocolatey maltiness of Ayinger Celebrator (underappreciated BOCK KING). Tying these elements together is the rarely mentioned overall character of a Trappist ale, drinkability included. Stupefyingly drinkable and delicious at 8% ABV, this is maybe one of the 5 greatest beers ever brewed. None better.

All of the best of hefe’s stirred together with dark roasted malts. Toffee, dark fruits, caramel, chocolate together with wheat, grass, banana, clove, etc. So very nice.

Darkish Brown. It has a very unique aroma kind of piney. Thick consistency sweet with a unique bitterness in the middle with a chocolately malt.

99beerman (29) - Gardners, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Pours cloudy red/brown with initial beige head that diminishes quickly. Very nice malt flavors mix with caramel, spices, grass, dark fruits and some citrus fruit. Very Port-like. Good full body and lightly sour malt aftertaste. Very good beer. I even bought the pictured glass...pretty neat.

I could look at this beer all day long. Beautiful dark weizenbock with a bleached head. Aroma of cloves, a slight bit of bananas (in a good way as in german hefe), while the darker malts serve to set it off from a hefe.

jmbranum (3) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 30, 2005 does not count
Excellent in a bottle, very rich with a clove-like banana-ish tang. Huge head. Excellent overall balance. Excellent in a bottle (and even better if allowed to age for 6 months), somewhat lesser in quality in tap at least here (not as complex of flavors)

johndoughty (4801) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2005
Dark and very deceptive. A lot of beers of this strength hit you head on.This doeesn’t-what you first taste is a complex smooth very slightly chocolate flavour.The alcohol follows. There are traces of wheat but they dont dominate. A very interesting beer,

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2005 A truly fantastic brew, wonderfully complex both on the nose and also on the palate, can’t start to describe the array of flavours..lovely. This obviously is a favourite with raters and I can’t say anything that hasn’t been said before. Asda £2

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.
