UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 Nice thick white head. A sharp contrast to the deep dark copper hued body. Loaded with malty sweetness and floral hop overtones. Noticeable alcohol at first sip. Roasted barley prevails in the mouth, great complexity behind it though. Surprisingly sweet floral finish.

Too strong. Very sweet and malty. For me this beer was too much to handle at once. Not my style, but I can see (taste?) why this would be a favourite for some.

Its sweet so I love it? Well sort of. I like the weighty malt flavor and will definitely get again.

Very strong aroma for the style. Syrupy brown sugar, some EtOH. The flavour holds up too.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2002
This beer poured a dark amber color and formed an off white bubbly head that was bit sudsy and left some lace. The aroma was of malt and caramel and a touch of chocolate. The flavor was of malt and chocolate with a touch of caramel. The body was a bit light for this style and not as creamy as others. The finish was light, but didn’t find it as bad as others mentioned, just a touch astrigent

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2003 a little sweet, long lingering caramel taste, but it gives a nice bloom with little bitterness. A very nice bock.
