Draft at iron abbey. Gorgeous amber pour with haze and thick head. Aroma is rich dark fruits with no spice. Taste is sweet. Slight citrus presence is secondary to caramel flavors. Finishes very quick and clean. Hides the alcohol well. Really nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark copper with little white head and no lacing. Aromas of spices, and mild alcohol. Taste is mildly sweet, some bitterness. Palate is medium body, flat palate, short finish. Overall, this is not my style and I really need to have more of this style to truly to say if this is a good beer. But for me, not my favorite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy light amber in direct light with excellent head retention and lacing.
Smells very malty but not of bread, wet grass, apple, light baking spices
Tastes of clove, banana, ripe fall sweet fruit, malt, and a strong spiciness that seem most american to me.
Creamy & enveloping mouth feel that is very nice and lingers and fades into a warmth that is the only really telling sign of all that booze. very pleasant

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 9/20/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Vinea, "Enjoy By Sep 24 2011". Pours cloudy dark auburn with a thick off-white head that recedes fairly quickly to a spot of lace in the center, and a thin collar. The nose is spicy clove and cinnamon with some caramelized malt, and banana fruitiness. The flavor is caramelized malt and spicy clove and cinnamon with some fruity banana, and just a hint of lightly burnt bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a medium spicy clove and banana finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Weizen glass.
Appearance: Dark orange with a slightly reddish cast. Some initial head but dies down too quickly.
Aroma: Loads of bananas and cloves, with some sweet fruits and caramel. Alcohol becomes somewhat noticeable as well.
Taste: Tastes like a big Dunkelweizen upfront with banana and clove before a huge sweetness takes over incorporating plum, apple, cherry and toffee. Very light noble hops peek through at the end, and the cloves come back as well in full force.
Palate: Moderate carbonation, full almost chewy body that is slightly warming.
Overall: As my experience with Weizenbocks is limited, this really mostly seems like a cross between a Dunkelweizen and a Doppelbock. Complex but a little too sweet for mass consumption, otherwise very, very good.

The aroma is sweet caramel, vegetable, spicy. The appearance is hazy amber, particulate matter in the glass. The flavor is sweet banana, caramel, clove, spices. Medium in body, a little sticky. The finish is sweet, spicy, resiny hops. Quite good.
