If you have an idea of what to expect from something like a doppelbock style of beer, this heads down that path. It’s deliciously sweet and hoppy, but the sweetness is balanced perfectly. It’s a great mix of flavor between something fuller bodied and something more floral. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 23, 2016
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of lightly roasted caramel malt. Opaque dark brown color, off-white head that sinks to a full cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is full-bodied malt, light fizz, and light bitter in a long, mostly sweet finish. The malt dominates in a good way here, fitting for a bock. Still searching for the rye.

Pours a cloudy, brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is of caramel malts, dark fruits, and not much else. Mostly dark fruits on the flavor with some sweetness from the caramel malts. Drake (14107) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2016
12 ounce bottle, 3/18/16. Dark brown, thin fizzy off-white head, fair retention. Aroma of raisin, wheat, chocolate, rye, banana. The taste is wheat, banana, chocolate, smoke, rye, citrus, grape, toffee. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Tasty. bwa5879 (961) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Really nice deep molasses brown pour with a thin layer of khaki head. Sharp aroma of caramel malt, sweet grainy malt, toffee, cream, clove, oak and a bit of raspberry perhaps. Average carbonation, thick creamy mouthfeel, effervescent finish. Sweet strong malt flavor with tingly rye, toffee, clove and banana. Strong German sweet malt bill with rye. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a dingy medium brown with a thick but small head. Aromas of caramel/toffee sweetness and a hint of banana. Flavor is sweet with toffee-like malt up front but then transitions to bananas and then a spicy finish that has a lingering bitterness. Interesting and decently put together. sinfull (1818) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Brown color . Thin , off-white head . Aroma of caramel malt , banana, clove and hint of spices . Malty , with notes of caramel and fruits. Decent beer , although it's weird for double bock to smell like weizen. BiddleBrau (1238) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Pours brown with thin off white head. Light malty nose. Crisp malt profile with mild hop bite. This is a nice brew, not too heavy, crisp but with a nice balance between malt and hops. Finhead (1831) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2016
