scooterbub (1068) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - FEB 2, 2008
12 oz bottle out of a sampler pack. Has a dark copper color and a small off white head. The beer is slightly sweet and has a slight caramel taste to it. Overall, this is an enjoyable beer, that goes down smooth and is easy to drink. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle, an enjoyable Bock. Poured a dark amber color, with a rich sweet aroma of malts and chocolate. Not as sweet as I thought it would be, but had notable caramel notes. A decent beer that I could get again. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Pours a very dark amber color with thin tan head. Medium body with rich caramel flavor. Quite sweet but a good beer for once in a while. Pretty good bock. WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Brownish amber color, minimal head. Flavor is roasted malts and caramel sugar. Has a slightly burnt note. Medium body. Somewhat sweet. Not bad, but not as good as some of the other Schell beers. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Pours a light red-brown with a small amount of head. Aroma is burnt sugars/caramel and a bit of vanilla. Flavor is caramel and malts with a bit of bitterness to finish. The body is pretty light with some carbonation. An okay bock.
ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, reddish-brown body with a small, creamy off-white head.
Smell: Aroma full of caramel, toasted malts, and apple juice.
Taste: Carnival caramel apples with a toasted malt flavor and plenty of sweetness. I don’t pick up much in the way of hops here. Sweetish, apple juicey finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel.
Drinkability: It’s an okay bock, but the sweetness becomes a bit grating in the long run. Gregis (1291) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle courtesy of csbosox. Pours a dark, cola-like, reddish brown with a frothy beige head. The nose is of slightly burnt caramel malt, light peat, and perhaps a touch of toffee. Fairly light-bodied with fine, tongue scrubbing carbonation and a lightly dry and astringent finish. The flavor is a dark, roasted caramel malt front with a burnt, peaty note and just a touch of hops at the woody, astringent finish. dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with brown hues. Small, off-white head that disapates quickly. Sweet nose, caramel, toffee, and a touch of roast. Taste is much the same, caramel and toffee backbone with a touch of roasted malt. No real hop bitterness. Crisp finish, no real after. I just got the mix case at the local distributor, and it had the ’06 Snowstorm in it, so I have no clue whether or not this is new or a year old. Either way it is a decent brew, nothing special, but tasty nonetheless. franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a clear copper with a small amount of white head that dies quick. Smells of toasted grain malt and a little toffee. Tastes the same. Light in the mouth with a lot of carbonation. Drink it all day if you like it but Id rather find a different beer to session.

Pours a dark almost brick red with a noisy frothing head. Yes noisy....snap, crackle and pop. Nice sour-mash and malt nose. Full body gulps deliver a hardy malt flavor but if you sip it you can find a lot of little particulars. Rich caramel, malt, tanginess maybe a little metallic and some light fruit undertones.
