3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5oz sample BJís Cupertino, CA - Bartender told me the tap is 60% CO2 and 40% NO2 - Aroma is doughy yeast, mild spice and a touch of lemon. Pours mud puddle brown with a small head and good lacing. Flavor is also very doughy with a touch of citrus tartness and spice. Palate is creamy and a little tart. A non-offensive easy drinkin brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bodyís a clear dark brown capped by a slender white head. Nice roasty aroma with caramel and a touch of toffee. Smooth to drink, roasted and sweet with just a tgouch of earthy/herbal bitterness to keep it in balance. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub, Plano TX
Dark brown color, thin persistent head. Aroma of roasted malt. Smooth taste, with a good balance of caramel and roasted malt, the final as well is quite velvety and balanced. A good Stout, more than a Bock.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orangey malty aroma, very sweet, also with hints of caramel. Cloudy like a hefe, medium brown body, with very little head. Sugary and clove flavors, with little hops to balance it. VERY sweet - I had to think for a while what I was tasting, and then I realized, the major flavor was exactly like Juicyfruit bubble gum.
