12 oz bottle thanks to 17th Floor. Pours a clear dark red brown with a beige creamy head that quickly fades to a ring. Malty bock aroma - roasted, toffee, caramel, brown sugar. Thin but syruppy body. Odd flavors are a mess - Syruppy sweet charred bitter caramel so many flavors that are not going together. Mostly its that overly sweet syruppy malt that becomes roasty and hot alcohol almost spicy in the finish. Ah, that’s enough rating, I can pour this one down the drain. brokephibroke (316) - Mead, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Clear ruby brown pour with a frothy light brown head. Very aromatic. Flowery, fruity sweet aroma. Taste is sweet, alcohol, malt, chololate. Reminds me of EKU28. beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Bottled. Pours mahogany with almost no head. Aromas of orange peel and toasted malt. Main flavors on the palate are caramel and bitter chocolate. Finishes weak for a 9% ABV beer, with a little hoppiness and alcohol. brewblackhole (1587) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Aroma is like a fruit liqueor chocolate would taste,just have to work to hard to get much here ,the alcohol soon burns off and by virtually touching your nose to the brew,you get some chcolate, limp for something called Imperial,big syrupy body,sweet malt and melanoiden, alcohol saturated ,alcohol sour sweet malt in finish. Just to much malt.would have been better as an eisbock punkeedo (499) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - MAR 24, 2009
2009 Bottle. Generally a good beer, but this brew seems quite acidic, which makes it an eventually unpleasant drink. Aroma of caramel and spices with a dark amber color and a cream-colored head. Tastes of spicy malts and strong caramel with an unpleasant acidic edge and aftertaste.

The look is cloudy, amber in color, and has a nice looking beige head. The smell is caramel, malts, bready, sweet, and fruits. The taste is sweet, alcohol, molasses, brown sugar, caramel, and malts. mcox90 (2161) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear claret color with a minimal white head. Aroma is sweet molasses and malt. Moderate sticky palate with low carbonation. Taste is all sweetness with flavors of molasses, brown sugar and malt. Alcohol is fairly obvious. Nice sweet sipper of a brew. buckeyebeerman (10) - Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2009

12 oz bottle. Pours ruby brown with a minimal beige head. Smells of candy, sugar, apple. and malt. Tastes of alcohol, brown sugar, carnival candy, overly sweetened lager. Not saying this is bad, but very unusual. Aftertaste is sticky sweet. I’m glad I tried this, but probably won’t try it again. blipp (9929) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours red with a beige head. Malty sweet aroma with fruit and bread. The flavor is sweet also, with caramel, bread, and a hint of some fruity sweetness. Decent.
