Bottle shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Light auburn pour. Plenty of sweet caramel with notes of cocoa and sweet grains. Solid. arnold931 (1261) - Iowa, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from the New Glarus brewery. Slightly hazy mahogany with a tan head. My first impression was that of a mild dubbel. JonnyMadison (94) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle. A beautiful mahogany color. Velvety on the palate. Taste is great, especially the first few sips, but it remains good throughout. A chocolate taste with hints of fruit. pushkinwow (2961) - Ottawa, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from madbeerbaron. A nice slightly hazy mahogany with a tan head that mostly fades. Semi-sweet caramel malt with a nice graininess, some toffee, bit of green apple skin. Moderate body and carbonation, semi-sweet, fairly malty, becomes very dry, slightly chewy, enjoyable. wlajwl (7198) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Aroma is fruit/berries, caramel and dry malts. The flavor is caramel, dark fruit/berries, toffee, malts and a tart/mildly warming alcoholic finish.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear, dark ruby with a thick head of beige foam. The aroma is musty, earthy, butterscotch, and some toffee. The taste is fairly sweet and nutty. The finish is more on the bitter, sort of dry nut hull type of taste. Medium to full body with low to medium carbonation. Nice rings of lacing are left on the sides of the glass and there’s plenty of head retention. Very nicely done. HisBoyElroy (107) - Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Not my favorite style, but it was still a pretty decent brew. Very easy drinking for a dunkler. northropfrye (3731) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
Dark red orange body with some head, quickly fading, some lacing. Sweet malty aroma, bready. Taste is sweet, lagery, malty, some roastiness and coca, but pretty subtle. Abv well masked. Nothing special but a decent beverage. cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Not sure I understand the high rating on this. Nice grains and honey aromas and flavors. Smooth and easy to drink. But still kind of boring. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle shared by Jeff. Pours a hazy dark red with small head that quickly fades away. Aroma is very malty. Toasted bread, toffee, maybe some light red fruit. Taste is mildly sweet and malty as expected. Mostly toast and toffee with some light chocolate, caramel and fruit as it warms. Very smooth. Nice mouthfeel, slightly sticky. Quality Bock.
