2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy red-amber with a smnall light tran head. The aroma is lightly stale malt, tobacco even. Some dark fruit and sweetness also. The flavor is alcohol, sweet fruity malts, caramel, and a bit of staleness, even maybe medicinal. Medium dry, attenuated finsih.

draft at brewery. light color, for a bock. i think perhaps others are reading too much into this beer; it seemed rather straightforward to me. aside from the pleasant malt notes, some typical lagery scents--lightly yeasty. very clean, but not too complex. some dark fruits and malts, but otherwise not spectacular.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2004 draught 12/04 at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with some barely perceptible burgundy/maroon tinges and a strong light tan head. Aroma is slightly weak, in retrospect, after drinking the beer. Some light caramel, sour yeast and prune notes. What the aroma lacks, is made up for by the flavor. Havent had a regular gravity beer this flavorful in a long time. Immediately washes the palate with sticky, chewy caramel, toffee, prunes, raisins, a touch of tobacco perhaps. Ends on a drier chocolate and yeast mix. Clean lager finish, a touch of thinning, that belies the huge flavor up front. Medium body, moderate carbonation, low hops apparency. I definitely had two pints of this while I was there.
