Clear, rich redcopper colour; medium, cream-amber head, not very lasting; Leafy, bready, nutty. This smells like an Urbock all the way. Slightly sourish, quite leafy. Malt underneath, but hardly any sweetness, even not warming up. Dried red fruit, faintly pharmaceutical. Not really well bodied, more attenuated than Bock would be. Needed a good Brooklyn one, after the Blast(ed) disappointment. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
APPEARANCE: dark brown beer, small unstable beige head.
NOSE: caramel, malty, sweet, some alcohol.
TASTE: very sweet, malty, some alcohol warming feeling. Good winter beer I think. Not really my style though. GnarlyGnome (770) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2015

Nutty, plum, dark caramel, mild roasted malt, touch of licorice, astringent finish. Flavors are a bit mild despite a promising nose, not as rich as expected for this style. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Aroma: Toffee, pecan praline, fruity esters reminiscent of fig newtons. Appearance: Rusty brown translucent pour with a foamy tan head that settles into a ring. Flavor: Thoroughly malty and somewhat sweet with lightly spiced bread and caramel; fruity esters are more dull than the nose suggests, leading to a semi-sweet finish. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Some good things going on here; I only wish the flavor was as dynamic as the nose suggested.

Aroma: caramel, molasses, bread malts, winter spices, cloves. Appearance: hazy brown, small creamy, beige head. Taste: Light sweet. Palate: sweets continue, then turn slightly bitter, fizzy carbonation, medium body. Overall: nice seasonal ale, could be more intense for that ABV. Pint at The White Horse, Parson’s Green.

Pours clear copper with tan head.
Aroma caramel, sweet, brown sugar, spice, honey.
Taste caramel malty sweets, little roasty bitter.
12 oz. bottle consumed at home. Pours a clear reddish copper color with a small beige head. The aroma had caramel malts, brown sugar, generally sweet, mild spices, earthy hops, and some fruit character. The flavor has more muted caramel malts, fruit, some cherry, mild spices, brown sugar, and hops. Light to medium bodied. Nothing very exciting here, but I had to rate this after having it a couple times.
