BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2007
On tap at St. Louis Park, MN location in a 20 oz shaker glass. Dark reddish brown with absolutely no head. Served very cold. No aroma to speak of. The flavor was very subdued with notes of sweet malt and hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. I don’t think they did a good job with the pour and it was served too cold, but overall not bad.

On tap via growler, Fargo. Dark amber colour, sweet malt aroma with some ammonia. Thinner texture than expected, a bit watery for my liking, certainly drinkable but could use more oomph! BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Dark amber color with caramel and roasted malt in the body. Slightly smoky. On tap at the Roseville Location. Stine (1792) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Reddish brown in color, raisins and caramel aroma. Malty but mostly light, mild fruit flavor with hints of wood and metal. Rather empty but not unsatisfying. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a very dark reddish brown, a lot darker than you would expect a maibock to be. About an inch of head that dissolves rather quickly. Fair amount of lace throughout the mug.
A little bit of a malty aroma, but not much. Solid caramel malt flavor without very much hops. Not quite full-bodied, but still pretty good. Softly carbonated and smooth drinking.

Tap at No. KC brewpub. Its mentioned elsewhere, but this was served WAY too cold. They even ice down their pint glasses, so the glass and the beer freeze out all initial aroma and flavor. Once it warms, a bit of roasted malt in there, but not much else. After taste was not good, almost dirty sockish. uglyblond1 (177) - Nebraska, USA - NOV 13, 2006
A fresh caramel malt aroma. Some toasty malt flavor along with nice not too sweet caramel malt. A pretty smooth finish without any offensive notes. A bit thin for a bock, and hops were a little light. hellomynameis (877) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Dark brown in colour, minimal head, just wisps of foam on top. No lace as the small head dissapeared quickly. Sweet aroma of dark roasty type malts with soem chocolate and caramel in there. Pretty typical of a bock, mostly sweet with some roast notes. no hop profile.

Tap at brewpub, Wichita, KS. Pours deep amber with an aroma of faint nut. Flavor is a nice caramel malt in the foreground with a nice molasses finish. A bit thin on the tongue. Well-made bock; nice balance of flavors. I’ll have this again next time I’m in Wichita. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2006
I liked this. A slightly sweeter malt profile, with a lite bit of nuttiness(peanuts and hazelnuts) mixed with a lighter bit of chocolate and caramel. This is a lighter bock style, but has some great chewy flavors.
