ezec (4) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2011 does not count
Pours a clear, warm, amber-gold with a healthy thick frothy head that lingers. Head is off-white with a golden hue. The nose is of fresh-cut pine backed up by tart apples, pears, then pineapple. Similar on the palate; starts with a sharp piney-citrusy flavor, followed by sweet, slightly fruity and biscuity tastes. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and it hides the 7.5% abv pretty well. I had guessed it was 6.25 or so. IBU’s in upper 40’s I’d guess. Anyway, it invites another taste...

From my dear brother: Pours a perfect pour, with a nice frothy white head and a golden orange body. Aroma is of candy, a touch of hops, sugar, and bread. The taste is what was the real surprise. Heller Bocks are a notoriously difficult style and this one knocked most of them out of the water. No alcohol burn (big plus!). Really smooth. Slight sweetness, with sort of bubblegum and European candy notes (difficult thing to explain...). A subdued hop bitterness is also present. Basically, my expectations were low, but instead I got one of the better Heller Bocks I’ve ever had.

Hay, lemon, and funk nose. Clear amber, thin head. Lemongrass and funk, light malty sweetness flavor. Flavorful for a bock and drinks like a belgian pale. Best beer I’ve had from Dominion in a long time.

DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Capone’s, and I believe this is my 2011 maibock cherry popper. Dark straw pour with 3-finger fluffy white head. Nose is floral and earthy, with hopcitrus, apricotty fruit, definite noble hops. No transient hops in this one; no sir. Tastes earthy, rich, fruity, with a big hop element and some cloying sweetness. Smooth finish, and very good.

shakespeare33 (203) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2011
sixer from safeway.. cant believe Im the fourth person to rate this... Pours a highlighted translucent golden hue w a dissipating snow white head... aroma is of a slightly sweetend bitterness with notes of honey and pine billowing above the rim... Initial hit to the palate is puzzling because there are definite pine crusted hop notes but they disappear quicker than the guy who woke up next to the ugly chick.. the overtone is laced with a bittersweet mix of malts that present a resinous, slightly syrupy earthy flavor.. simple flavor on the frontend but much more complicated throughout the remainder of the sip.. its a mystery wrapped in a conundrum.. heavier than what I expected but not overpowering.. Like the girlfriend I keep going back to..... I know I like her but Im just not sure why.. good brew from dominion though

Pour a nice gold color with a thick foamy head. Aroma reveals noble hops. The taste is mostly malt with a bit of alcohol strength at the end.

GMCC2181 (1613) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 5, 2011
Bottle picked up at StateLine... Yellow/Orange color, small head. Smells ok... slight fruity hops. Taste is a nice surprise. Nice hop bite... little fruityness with a nice malt backing... sweetness in the after taste...could go with out that... 7.5%??? was going to say this is a nice session beer but not at 7.5.... medium body... little sticky... Overall a decent heller bock

Braudog (6836) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle. Textbook pour, golden orange, quite active, with a staunch but thin bright white topping of rocky foam. The aroma is, well, beery ... sweet and malty with a hint of citrus. The beer drinks with a rich texture, silky and smooth. A beautiful example of style, this quaffable beer has an evident alcoholic kick, but is sublimely refreshing with a mellow sweet character.

haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light, clear amber color with a nice, frothy head. Nice, hoppy/malty mix in the aroma. Light citrus taste with a hint of grapefruit. A little bit of hops. Nice mix, actually. Dry finish that lingers around.
