01 May 08. Tap. Clear copper color. Clean malt aroma. Crisp malt flavor. Medium-light bodied. Finishes with an enjoyable sweetness.

On tap at the brewpub on 5/4/08: Transparent dark copper amber with a nicely-lacing frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet caramely German malt and some mild noble hops. Starts with decent fullness and sweet caramel maltiness with a good bittering hop balance before a smooth bittersweet finish with a touch of doughy yeast. A nice bock.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - APR 6, 2008
Full bodied with a slightly nutty and biscuity nose. I found this to be extremely smooth and well balanced. A bit of caramel sweetness follows throughout every taste. Slightly dry and fruity in the finish.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Pours a deep mahogany brown color with a tan head. Aroma is very light. It is of caramel and bitter roasted malts. Flavor is very malty with bitter roasted malts.

Cybercat (6142) - Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2007
A delicious bock whose dark red-brown color is exceptionally inviting. The smell is not strong, but I don’t have an exceptional sniffer. Flavor is strong and hoppy, but not too bitter, with a little nutty undertone. This beer is smooth and tingly, and definitely worth more than a few sips. If ever you are in Atlanta during the spring and this is on tap, do ask for it!

goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Draft @ the 5. Poured a clear dark copper color with a thin beige head. The aroma was light but mostly fruity. Plums seemed to dominate the aroma. Malty flavor with some more fruit. The finish was semi-dry with a bitter hop finish.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2006
