The best beer Yuengling has brewed thus far. Aroma of sweet vanilla and hoppiness . Flavors of vanilla and brown sugar, hints of chocolate malt, with nice mild hoppiness. Nice rich reddish copper color (a little darker than the Lager) with a creamy/foamy head. Finishes perfect. Hereís hoping Yuengling decides to make this a year round beer.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 Draft today at lunch at my local. I had two. I love revolving taps. So Boo Yah for Dick Yuenging with this critter. A full bodied and hoppy brew. Dark and foamy. Nose of acorns and chocolate. Body is medium. thick quaff rings ring the ceramic mug club: Quite a surprise from this brewery. I remember climbing the ladders and stairs of the brewery and seeing the old ads for this beer. I am overjoyed that history is able to repeat itself in this beer recipe. This may be their finest product. Try it before its gone if you can.

I wanted to try one of these so Thanks go out to a kind beer buddy who hooked me up. Poured into a Sam Adams glass It produced a finger worth of off white head that lasted a while then faded to a thin lace. The beer was a great chocolate brown in color body wise. I got good aromas of fresh bread and light roast in my nose. The flavor was bready and sweet with a light bitter finish. It was light and crisp in the mouth. If I closed my eyes I wouldnít have known this was a dark brew. It was very easy to drink and could easily session this one. I was quite impressed with this brew and would love to drink it again

Bottle. Dark copper color, clear. Pretty good. Fairly malty with some hop flavor, definite roasted flavor. Good carbonation.

Worth waiting for. Knock a wall out in Pottsville and add another bottling line. They should be brewing this full time. A malt taste, pouring a dark caramel color. Tart. A real nice touch with that retro goat label.

I was very excited when I saw this in the store; Yuengling has had the same beers for years and I had no idea that they had come up with a new creation. It did not disappoint. Much drier than the porter. Rich and malty, with only a slight hint of roast. Slight sweetness but much less than other bocks from mainstream American breweries. Faint sourness but not too much. Subdued but nuanced. I really like this beer, even though itís not the most complex dark beer Iíve had.

pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark copper color, off white head that a little more than 1 finger. leaves some lacing. Smell of toasty malt with caramel and some bread. Taste of sweet malt, caramel, with something almost biscuit. Very easy drinking Bock thatís not as BIG as most bocks. Good beer over all!

On tap at the Icehouse in Punta Gorda, FL. Clear brown pour with a nice off white head. I was surprised by the hop aroma, very nice for a non-micro. Good flavor, malty and a nice bitter finish. Lighter than it looks, easy drinking. I really enjoyed this one.
