COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-Style lager is a big beer. A very big very big beer. We think it will earn some "Big Love" from the folks in the Land of Zion. We predict once this beer is discovered "Utah will never be the same". We ask, as with all our products, you enjoy this brew with care and caution.

jebert (473) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Pours mahogany red with a thin tan head mostly lasting. Nose is caramel. Very creamy on the palate. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, light molasses, The 8% ABV is well hidden but does warm one’s innards. Nice clean sweet aftertaste. An excellent double bock which stands as a banquet unto itself and pairs magnificently with mussels or smoked Pacific salmon.

Amber, very clear and luminous, tall, persistent head, little lacing. Full body, very rich, silky texture, which it in part owes to the high alcohol content, despite low heat. Good length, rich finish. Malty, caramel, little but detectable hop. Satisfying beer, does not disappoint. Sweet, little bitterness or acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours an orangey brown with an off-white head. Little lace. Aroma has mostly caramel and lemon. Taste follows with sweet caramelly malts, lemon - not real heavy - and some brown sugar. Finishes too sweetly.

DANEgerous (85) - Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Aroma: Kind of a mix of charred bread and charred meat, it smells of grain and fire Appearance: Deep brown almost red with very red tinges when held to light. Taste: Sweet yet savory slightly smokey with heavy notes of coffee and chocolate. Floral yet not hoppy floral more like orange flower watter or just Orange Juice if you have not had that, springy and sharp aftertaste. Palate: Slightly thick but all in all average Overall: Unique, the smokey hardy sweetness says "pair me with BBQ" and I agree. Still all in all nice balance and yeah I would buy this again.
