Burnt/coffee-like roasted aroma and flavor. Nicely balanced with some caramel malt flavor. A little tartness. Mild bitterness. Distinct lager yeast flavor; not prominent really, but there. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Sampled on 10/12/2012 at GABF. This bock pours a deep reddish black color from the tap. Medium sized off-white foamy head. The aroma is chocolates, roasty malts and slightly sweet. A medium bodied bock. The malts are roasty, chocolate and slightly sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Perhaps a touch thin tasting. Seems more of a Schwarzbier than a bock. Mouthfeel iss full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. jsquire (4599) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Dark beer out of the can with some cola colors around the edges. Whisp of khakhi bubbles for a head. Nose of wet grain and something tart. Lots of strange tartness in this beer. Some roast grains, wet bread and tart cherry notes. This is a really odd bock. afrueh (49) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - SEP 15, 2012
molasses, coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, black, cloudy, frothy, initial light sweetness, finish lightly bitter, full body, thick feel, average carbonation JamesD (244) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Great beer. Aroma of crisp roasted malt. Flavor is creamy with a hint of nutmeg like spices and just a little bit of funky kick. Great for a dark beer that isn’t too heavy to session. I have bought this before and will do so again.

12 oz can, courtesy of Douglas88. Pours almost black with reddish edges. Nice 2 finger creamy beige head. Malty aroma with light hoppyness. Smells a lot like cream soda. Roasted malt and light chocolate flavor w/ a touch of smoke. Still manages to be slightly sweet. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Nice. Ratman197 (15368) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2012

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this can.
The beer pours a dark reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of dark fruit, as well as some toffee and caramel malt. The flavor is similar, with toffee, caramel, cocoa and a lot of dark fruit. There is also some dry nuttyness in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
