Bottle from Super Saver. Medium brown pour with 2-finger, creamy, khaki head. Aroma of caramel malt, vinous notes, sour fruit. The flavor is malty, fruity and grapey, with some sour vinous cherry and brown sugary notes.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Chunky multi brown with a thick, solid, fresh-powder-snow-like tan head. Funky dark fruits, rich and roasty caramel/toffee, biscuits, bready yeast, clove like spice, light ash and banana notes. Medium/full, smooth palate. Great bock. Underrated.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Nice, great aroma, great malt characteristic. Lots of dark fruits, and black tea, with just a bit of sweet dark bread crustiness. Chewy mouthfeel, slightly earthy and very sugary sweet. I like it!

Very sweet malt aroma holds dates, fig, raisin and dark bread. Cloudy brown with a huge three finger thick, lasting, tan head. Sweet syrupy malt fore tastes of crusty dark rye bread, raisin, date, brown sugar, caramel and peppry spices.

IThinkImBuzzed (18) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Poured with a scary amount of clumpy sediment- it looked like a beer version pearl tea. A little bit of sediment is fine, but globs of it plunking out of the bottle did not appear appetizing. OK tannish-brown head. A musty odor and a musty, earthy, malty sweet taste. Perhaps I had a bad bottle.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle. Dreadful looking clumps falling into the muddy brown liquid. Decent looking head, long lasting. Some cinnamon and dates in the aroma, malty for sure. Flavor is sweetish, a little woody, falls a bit flat on the finish. Low carbo, medium bodied. Not incredibly pleasant.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2006 [bottle] Pours a brownish color, with a thick, long lasting head. Flavors are nice, dark malts, caramel sweetness and a touch of coffee. Alcohol content is well hidden. Finishes malty, somewhat sweet and smooth.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2006
This is a spicy tasting, top fermented bock that pours a reddish brown with a dense tan head. Its got a sharp caramel nose accompanied by a peppery scent from the rye. A bit of alcohol drifts through, too. Its quite light and very spritzy in the mouth. The flavor is caramel, charcoal, pepper, some apple, and alcohol. Finishing on a warm, sweet, spicy note, this makes an enjoyable, if gassy, drinking experience.

Fairly ordinary bock that isnt up to the standards of Salvator or Optimator, but more successful than the attempts of many micro brewers. Caramel colored. Standard flavor of a bock, with more caramel and sugar.
