I liked this beer, it pours a pretty amber color. It has a good taste with a nice carmelly aftertaste.
Aroma and flavor is caramel malts and a long and slightly cloying sweet finish. DasBierChef (1084) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Not a bad beer, but nothing special. A good one to boil up some brats in! So do that. edgallow (4477) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2012
12 oz bottle pours red amber with a tan head. Aroma is sweet with a bit of spice. Taste is of sweet malt with some spiciness to it. drowland (9078) - Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Had from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Don’t really remember specifics, but it was very disappointing for a bock. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2009
Deep copper almost amber pour with a lite white head and lace. An aroma of caramel malt and rock candy. Flavor is alot like raisins or dates and caramelly malt. Mouth fell is medium bodied but a tad foamy. A really pretty nice beer.

Bottle from Springslicker. Pours a very nice deep copper amber with an off white head. Nice aroma of sugary raisens. Medium to light bodied with a smooth refreshing texture. Flavor of raisens, caramel, and bread with some slight hints of chocolate, Could use a bit more hops to balance it out, as there is a good amount of residual sweetness. Clean finish. Much better than I was expecting. Worth trying. MrBunn (2848) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours with a brown body and a two finger head. Aromas are leather and toffee with a bit of a nutty direction. Flavor was pleasant enough, but kind of weak. Had that nice tangy bock flavor and a toffee body. OK, but I would say I’ve had better (and fuller-bodied) bocks. FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-brown color with a medium sized dark tan head. The aroma was sour, tangy and nutty with hints of fruit and sweet caramel. The flavor was yeasty, sour and tangy. Rather richly malty with notes of caramel, raisin and other ripe fruits. Very nice!

Had this beer on 8/6/2005. Aroma is a sweet roasted malt scent. Color is deep amber/brown with good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is rich and sweet. Stating with a bold medium body it goes down with a sweetness comeing on. Finish comes in rich, but not heavy, with a sweet lightly roasted malt flavor and is backed by a mild even bitterness. Overall its very good, a near perfect for Spring. Its bold enough for a cool Spring day and yet refreshing enough for a warm Spring day. Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottled. Poured deep reddish-brown with a short, but well-retained cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up well-aged caramel, accented by drier herbal and floral notes.. simple, sweet, and quite alluring. The flavor wasn’t bad by any means, but definitely seemed like it had a whole bunch of simple sugars accenting the toasted caramel at the core.. a little toffee and chocolate sweetness at the edges along with primarily herbal bitterness.. some warm alcohol notes right at the edges and at the finish. Quite tasty. About medium-bodied and syrupy at times on the palate.. nicely balanced. I really enjoyed this.
