Deep copper color, crystal clear with a big rocky tan head. Smells of rich malty sweetness and toasty melanoidins. Taste leads with sweet malt, moves to a subtle fruitiness, and finishes with nice toast note. Alcohol is dangerously subtle. Very tasty and drinkable.

From a bottle into a Scotch Silly tulip glass. Pours brown with head and lace. Aroma of roasted malts, biscuit-scones. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark roasty malts, caramel, minerals, cola, dk chocolate. Overall, big, bold, rich and tasty.

Pours a dark brown from a bottle. Nose is a coffee and caramel, flavor adds a slight smokiness. Not a balanced beer. Meh.

fidelis83 (2125) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Clear garnet brown pour with a one finger, creamy khaki head that has great retention. Aroma is full of bready, toasty malt, some doughy yeast, a hint of rum, toffee and light herbal hops. Flavor is caramel, toffee, crusty bread, light resinous pine, cereal, dry hay, light nutty notes and some earthy, herbal and floral hops. Medium body, super chewy feel throughout and light, but somewhat sharp and blanketing carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff, a little on the sweet side for my taste, even for the style, but good.

12 oz into tulip. Pours a clear, deep, dark brownish red color. Head is a dark khaki color. Aroma is sweet, with a slight dried fruit note. Taste is sweet and slightly spiced, with a firmish malt backbone.

jmohno (1196) - Iowa, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Lovely appearance, dark but a bright clear copper red tone. Sweet buttery grainy caramel malts hit you in aroma with a tangy almost sour like kind of citrus. Bit of spice and herbal. Cream brule. Taste is malty citrus, herbal and spice with a tangy finish with citrus. The middle is smooth and rich with carmelly malts, sweet raison,toffee rich buttery and some mild roast character. Sticky sweetness stays in your mouth. I suppose this might be better than the average bock, but still pretty shure this style is not my thing. As I always remind myself everytime I get one once in a blue moon.

Draft. Dark brown and clear. No head. Nose is sweet and malty. Taste is the same with a ton of sticky sweetness. Glad I got a sampler.

Poured from bottle to Pilsner glass: Starts off with a thick, foamy, light tan head that dissipates slowly; starts out dark brown and lightens to a golden color as you hit bottom. Clear all the way through. The nose is pretty basic, with a malty, musty smell. It's reasonably thick and has a simple, strong flavor. Primarily coffee laced with some chocolate and nutty notes in the background. The ABV is relatively well disguised, and the finish is the same coffee and malt you started with, but smoothed out and a bit lighter on the palate. Solid, heavy, and strong if that's what you're looking for.
