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! NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - APR 5, 2006
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.

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. It’s got a sharp caramel nose accompanied by a peppery scent from the rye. A bit of alcohol drifts through, too. It’s 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.JK (6162) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2006

Fairly ordinary bock that isn’t 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. HogTownHarry (6942) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2005
Bottle (300ml). Poured murky deep reddish-brown with a massive tan foamy-pillowy head, huge sheets of white sediment. Very nice sour fruit/cider/wine aroma, waves of funky yeast, very grainy, a bit of caramel malt and lactose. Taste is oddly caramelized, burnt fruit, alcohol, but mostly fermented grain - I like it a lot. Mouthfeel acidic, decent body, noticeable alcohol - very nice, good cold weather brew, although that’s probably the most sediment I’ve ever seen in a beer.. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Brown earthy dirt like color. Lots of ginger and cinnaman in the aroma. Irony bloody sour ffeel to the body, kind a has a dirt vibe too.
