Had this during the Backwoods Brewdown up at Hill Farmstead. Pours an orange amber with a thin white head. Grassy, honey, and grain. Sweet caramel and hoppy aromas. Long grapefruit with a touch of bitterness on the finish. Nice, smooth and crisp.

Bottle from my trip to Vermont in Aug. Pours a nice amber color with a very light tan head. Aroma is very sweet with notes of toffee, sweet malt and some cane syrup. Flavor is pretty sticky wtih a pretty small hop bite. Not overly impressed, but it is certainly drinakble. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2007

Pours hazy dark copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is grainy malt, hops, citrus, and mild spicy florals. Tastes grainy malty, with a heavy hopcitrus dose, but never quite seems balanced and it does start rather hot and stay rather hot. Not terrible, but not a beer I’d rebuy.

This spicy and sweet Dunkler Bock propels bready caramel maltiness onto the potent peppery and leafy hop flavors and bitterness. Unusual for the style, and rather incohesive, this big lager remains drinkable for its size.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the pale brown.
-The nose is rather upsetting, not offering much in the way of clean maltiness.
-The finishing hop bitterness is out of proportion for the style, and does not have enough malt sweetness to be pleasant.
-Alcohol is well concealed, increasing drinkability.
22 oz bottle. Deep amber-golden beer, thin white head. Soft sweet malty aroma. Pale straw-like crackery sweetness. A very European strong lager-like malt sweetness. Flavour is lightly floral and herbal. Fairly prominent bitterness with a lingering herbal/floral flavour. Okay, but not great.
