24oz Bottle pours a clear light brown. Small but sturdy sandy head with aromas of soft fruit, apples and mellow tones of caramel and brown surag. Some light pitted fruit in the flavors, more maltiness and a touch of paper at the end. Soft carbonation and a rich smooth palate. Very tasty maltdog (626) - New Mexico, USA - APR 29, 2013
Sexy auburn color, disappointing filmy foam, and a smattering of large, fast bubbles (replaced later by periodic pinpoints). Crazy unpredictable nose- toasty, waxy, raisin, raspberry, pumpernickel, wet vegetation, forest fire, roasted corn, apple dumplings- almost impossible to describe. The taste likewise defies words... undeniably toasty, muted dark caramel, briarfruits, grainy, husky, nutty, fire-grilled meat, woody whisky flavors, anise, nutmeg, thyme, musk, truffle, Barolo (an Itallian wine fermented from the Nebbiolo grape)... mindboggling in both its apparent haphazard diversity and (seredipitous?) deliciousness. Medium-thick mouthfeel has a sugary density, yet boasts only a mild malty sweetness and not a syrupy sapor. Incredibly savory, it would pair equally well with a whole roasted suckling pig, smoked turkey, Irish lamb-and-barley stew... but perhaps best of all with an assortment of German wursts and spicy mustard, sauerkraut and chewy soft pretzels. OMG that would be incredible! I must admit, I wasn’t enthusiastic until tasting; then the incredible complexity and gratifying... meatiness?... won me over. I’ve only ever had one other beer that approached the toasty/herbal/umami quality of this, and that in a tiny, hidden brewpub 1,800 miles from where I live.

Poured from a 22ounce bomber, thanks to Ed. Poured with minimal head. The yeast profile is subtle, hint of spice and banana. More of a Bock beer than a Weizen Bock. Super malty with minimal arisen character. Very good beer but the name implies something else. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a copper/brown colored body and is slightly transparent with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dies within a minute. Speckled spider web lacing graces the sides of the glass.
The smell starts out chalky, but eventually fades and lets the true aspects of the beer come out - malty, slightly nutty, and earthy.
The taste is sweet nutty/maltiness (the chalkiness does come out initially in the taste, but eventually goes away) and slightly grainy. The aftertaste has a sharp malty aftertaste and a dry malty finish.
On the palate, she sits about a medium, and comes across slightly sessionable. Carbonation is kinda smooth and good for the style and for me.
Overall, for the most part, I say this is a good weizenbock, but to be honest, I haven’t had too many of these, however, I’m willing to come back to this, also, it kinda reminds me of a Brown Ale. jsmerig (1663) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours a deep mahogany with a foamy tan head. Nutty aroma mixed a little with chocolate. Complex and rich taste. Notes of honey, toffee with a toasted nutty background. Finish brings out a slightly bitter taste which is actually more of a roasted flavoring. Crisp but not dry. Dark but not overbearing. I’d buy a case of the big bottles and bring one out on special occasions. Thanks to my wife for her input on the flavor profile.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light malty sweetness, wheat, and a hint of fruity sweetness. A touch on the bland side for the style, with a clean malty finish. Solid. drowland (8939) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2013
22oz bomber thanks to post LOLer bitbucket. That fucken guy gave up. This is my first Full Sail rating since the malt liquor. Fuck yes. Sweet caramel and banana in the aroma and flavor. Quite mild. This is not the best beer I’ve ever had, but it’s good and definitely not terrible. Fuck you assholes for downrating this guy’s homebrew recipe. This is good shit AND money went to a charity. Assholes. EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Caramel, herbal aroma. A lot of malt flavor; sweet, brown sugar, raisin/black cherry. Subtle clove aroma and flavor. Not a lot of Hefe yeast character... More like a bock/doppelbock. Crispy34 (496) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Bomber bottle. Aroma is dark and sweet. Appearance is a dark brown with little head. Taste a dark malt flavor that turns a little dry towards the end. Palate is dry with loads of carbonation. Overall, a decent weizenbock. Would buy again.
