Pours a clear orange gold, not much of a head of foam; despite that, thar be lacing. Big bready notes in the smell. I also get some caramel and a spicy note or 2. The semi sweet caramel mixed with a bready malt dominates. The spicy kick I mentioned in the smell doesn’t appear in the taste but it is not needed. Makes this beer more authentic to the style. Medium body and carbonation. Good interpretation of the style.

Review from either late summer 2008 or mid spring 2009, reviewed on my parents deck and somewhat shared with my pops (who I could tell wasn’t too fond of it).
Poured out a clear and attractive copper brew, creamy light tan cap and amazing permanent lacing. The aroma has a great robust roasted malt front... tons of malts really. Early on the malts are almost pungent (it weakens), nice balanced sweetness from the malts, maybe even a faint smoke quality. Background nectarine and other citrus - these citrusy hops take away some of the bite of the large roasted character. The depth of flavour and it goes from roast to deep roast to dark earthy roast with a hint of peat. Somehow, with all this thick flavour, the malts are not really that rich - a richness that can kill a bock for me. Mild bitterness, a bit of fruit, light peppery spice, slight alcohol (perfect amount). Especially early on, the malts had such amazing depth, such a range of flavours that I was not sure if I liked it. But the incredible range and depth won me over very fast. Smooth, perfect. Short lived spice on the finish, tons of roasted malts. Veers from the standard bock recipe and that is why I like it so much. This beer is awesome.

On tap at the 2009 NABA. Pours a deep amber color with a medium white head. The aroma was biscuits, light malts and caramel. A sweet earthy flavor, lots of caramel, and a large earthy malt. Easygoing and tasty.

Tap at the brewery. Wet veggies, biscuit and cherry cordial aroma. Olivey, chocolate chip cookie flavor, nicely complex, with lots of rich munich character. Not a bad effort.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear medium amber with a moderate head that only lasted through the first few sips. Light but pleasant aroma of malt. Flavor followed the aroma. Not sweet but not bitter either. I thought the alcohol was well hidden. An easy and enjoyable beer to drink.

12oz bottle via trade with Bück Dich - Thanks Jordan! - Pours amber/golden with a short white creamy head that fades to a film quickly. Aromas of caramel, some light spice, and some yeast, and some earthy notes. Flavor is pretty grainy with some caramel coming through as well and just a touch of the alcohol. A little spice there too. Overall a lot of yeasty flavor though. Medium bodied and not much carbonation. No sign of the 7.1% either. Not bad..
