12oz bottle, courtesy of acrdz. Thanks, Mike! Pous a hazy orange-amber color; light tan head with patchy fine-bubbled lacing. Lots of sticky, tea-like malts and caramel and tannins and fruitiness in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: chewy candy sugar, biscuity malts, and mineral bitterness; dry, dusty, and reasonably pleasant. Lengthy finish: breadiness, candy sugar, and dry yeast.

Bottle in sixer from Jewel. I was worried about this one because it was 6 months old. No problem. Pours a dark amber with a decent head. Smells of caramel and yeast. Flavors include caramel, yeast, a bit of wheat and leaves your mouth coated with a caramelly aftertaste. Very nice.

I’m overall not a fan of Bock styles but this is a good one. Sweet, but enough bitterness to even it out. spicy and roasty.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Attractive amber pour with a robust off-white head. The nose has touches of roasted caramel malt and a hint of fruitiness. Flavor begins with sweet roasted caramel and toffee...but not overly sweet. light alcohol notes. My sample had intermittant but faint hints of mustiness, or was that the earthy hopping...hard to tell. Decent enough brew.

(Bottled in 3/07 via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=3 target=blank>EithCubes, thanks Mike!) Not bad t’all...Pours darkish bronze/amber with three fingers of biscuit head. Aroma of bread, vanilla, licorice and caramel. Mouthfeel quite full, fairly smooth. Light traces of lacing. Flavor is kind of thick maltiness, notes of licorice and caramel throughout, with a small hit of bitter in finish. Pretty nice!

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Nice pour, an orange/copper body with steady bubbling and a tall off-white head that does intricate lacing as it recedes. It has a sweet, toasty malt aroma with touches of caramel and apple along with a subdued earthiness. Nice bread & caramel flavor with some earthy bitterness to keep the sweetness in check. Okay.
