Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle from Greenlife in Chattanooga. Clear brown, huge white head. Malty, toasty and fresh bread aroma. Flavor is lightly toasty, some spicy notes. A little nutty, as well. Maybe it benefited from lowered expectations, but I enjoyed this more than I expected.

Deep amber pour with fluffy tan head and lace. Aroma of light caramel malt. Light caramel malt flavor, brown sugar, and a light finishing bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation with just a light hint of watery. Very nice with just a hint of spiceyness.

Pint on tap. Deep amber-light chestnut color with a disc of foam. Nose is caramel and cherry cola, with hints of toasted nut and milk chocolate. Tastes of caramel, cocoa, toast, and hints of cherry, citrus and dry grass. Near-medium body is balanced pretty well and has light-medium carbonation.

2.6
SpringsLicker (3665) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Clear medium brown with a small soapy head of white. Some malt in the aroma. Some sourness that shouldn’t be there as well. Not much flavor for a style that should present lots of malty goodness. Very disappointing.

3.4
NachlamSie (3534) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2009
On tap at Hamilton Place. This pours a deep, dark red with a just a small ring of head. The aroma is sort of roasty with hints at wax chocolate, grass, and nutshells. The mouthfeel is medium with a semi-tart flavor of wax chocolate, brownie crust, and nuttiness. This is a fair winter beer but not as suited for the season as their Iron Horse Stout. This is drinkable. For a bock, I liked it well enough as it lacked that weird fruity, gummy flavor I sometimes find in the style.
