4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice dark amber color with a medium head that dispates quickly leaving little lacing. Nice malty aroma with a slight sweetness. Very malty flavor with a fruity sweetness and caramel and a little bit of hops bitterness, but very little. A delicious beer worth trying no matter what kind of beer you like.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown, nearly black with a tan head. Nose is sweet. Loads of caramel and some molasses notes. Intensely sweet. Some fresh bread as well. On tasting, bready but wickedly sweet. Fully bodied but super sweet finish. Not really balanced. Not a fan of this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a beautiful clear mahogany color with a thin quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, toasty malts. Flavor is sweet with slight nutty notes, lingering the finish. Body is light. I?m not usually a bock fan, but a delicious beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a copper with minimal head. Taste was fairly simple and soapy. A little bit of malt sweetness helped save a beer that would have been otherwise underwhelming.
