Translucent chestnut brown, beige ring for a thin frothy head. Dusty grain and pumpernickel, brown sugar nose and a bit of paper. Flavor is sweet, crisp grain husk, lightly refreshing carbonation, raisin, and pepper in the finish.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a browner ice tea with a foamy head, lowly carbonated. Aroma is an old beer depot; some caramelness, some banana, some bubblegum, some earthy malt. Taste is caramelly malt without any sweetness, banana. Somewhere in the mix between a brown and a bock; more fruity than a brown but without the sweetness of a bock, especially a dunkler. I know uff-da, and sir, you are no uff-da.

Pours a near clear dark purple/plum with sticky white head lacing. Nose has a little fuesel alcohol and a fake sweetness - like that of a grape popsicle. Flavor is malty and a bit nutty. Big carbonation and chew body. Nothing really wrong here, but not one of my faves from NG.

That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Always happy to try a new New Glarus brew. Pours a nice reddish-brown with hardly any head. Nose of light syrupy sweetness and light roastiness. Roast comes through more in the flavor. Very light and tasty.

Clear brown with a thick off-white head. Good malt aroma. Wonderful malt flavor, the sweetness lingers, not cloying. medium body. A Wisconsin "Not Bad"

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Pours a cooper red with a nice sized light tan head. Nose is caramel and malt. Nice and creamy on the palate , the flavor is is rich with malt and caramel. No bitterness on the finish. Pairs well with roast beef on rye with chips and a pickle.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2010
12 oz bottle; pours dark roasty brown and clear with trace light tan head; dry chocolate, ashy malt, light orange too; drinks very dry with a faint sweet, almost roasty note; crisp finish and lagery sweetness; pretty bland and boring to me; fairly thin and flavorless for a New Glarus brew

3.3
bookman10 (1121) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Pours a nice chocolate-brown color with mid-sized, creamy head that dissipates rather rapidly. Some caramel and nut flavors present. Not a bad beer, but not one of New Glarus’ best.

3.3
cblado (298) - Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color, nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and yeast, flavor is sweet, caramel malt with a doughy finish. Medium palate. Bocks aren’t my favorite style, but this is very drinkable.

3.8
barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2010
bottle. pours a clear dark brown with a great looking off-white head, slowly fading to decent lacing. aroma is grainy malts with some caramel and toffee. taste is a rich malty sweetness without being over the top too sweet. mild to low carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. nicely done.
