On tap at Dalton. Pours light brown with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel and hint of hops. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of caramel malt, some coffee and herbal hops. Finish is long, sweet first then becomes dry. OK brew.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2016 Good cause, mediocre beer. Sweet, with a bread-n-honey malt front, with a modestly hopped finish that leans towards bananas-n-butter. Tastes like a better Yuengling, which may or may not be a compliment.

jbruner (4451) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Sampled at Classic City Brewfest 2016. Pours a hazy brownish red with thin tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of burnt caramel and vanilla notes over a hint of fruity yeast. Taste is more toward the caramel malt and clean finish. Im almost positive this was barrel aged but my notes dont say so, otherwise a decent bock.

Tmoney99 (14102) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate complex toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate dark sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

chinchill (4679) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 On tap at the brewery (2X). IBU = 35. Excellent clarity in the golden body; good head and very good lacing. Aroma: spicy baked bread. Herbal hops This is malty for style (the "imperial" part?) despite a normal hop load. Hints of toffee and baked fruits. O: a fine looking, very malty maibock.

Tap. Dark amber in color. Aroma was roasted cereal. Taste was a tad more hops then one would expect, toast and grains almost like a dark Mai Bock.

shadey (2096) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2014
On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Orange amber color. Sweet and malty with a nice bock smell. Very easy to drink and enjoyable. Good.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Had this in Chattanooga at a little place near the choo choo. Not bad. Better than some of the ratings, I thought. Pours amber brown. Caramel and sweet. Not bad.

Cybercat (5481) - Georgia, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Pours a clear, appetizing chestnut with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, light tan head. Malty aroma has subtle apple, cloves and nutty notes. Flavor has a strong woody note plus malty, fruity, nutty, yeasty and cloves tones. Firm texture has good body, though not too much fizz. Pardon me boys, is that the Chattanooga brew-brew?
