Had this one bottled in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. One of the best beers I’ve ever had. Medium brown color with a filmy head, very nice nuts and strawberry in the nose, and lucious fruitiness continues throughout. This is candy for beer drinkers. wonderful! hurleymanvw (101) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2004
This bock was great. Very amber in color with a light hops smell and a decent head. very crisp taste not too bitter. It was a very smooth beer for high content beer. TheBeerGod (6209) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2004 Had this at St. George Brewing in their sampling room. *** Also, while picking up some cask conditioned Porter today (10-15-04), Conor gave me a bottled sample of this. Thanks Conor! Amber body. Nose is light spicy hops and a pleasant maltiness. Bit of mild grassiness as well. Taste is malty with more of the spiciness coming through. Crisp at times but still a bit chewy. The alcohol is there but not overdone and leaves a bit of warming with it. Finishes well with milder malt and hop spice with minimal bitterness. Very good beer!

Pours orange with a fine, white head. Caramel, honey, citrus aroma. Moderate mouth feel with a hoppy backdrop. Caramel, honey, and fruity flavors appear. Very good. Norton (333) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2008
<b>Draft. </b> Got WASTED on this a few weeks ago. Easy drinker, mild carbonation. Faint tan head clings. Pretty deep orange/brown. Sweet, almost buttery. Satisfying.

Nutty aroma with a cloudy dark amber color and a creamy white head. A sweet malty flavor with a nutty aftertaste. GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pours with a white head. Nutty malt aroma. Very nice nutty taste with good amounts of alcohol and malt. Braudog (6676) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Bottle. Poured a bright orange-red with a firm foam top. Slight sugary aroma. Sugary and sweet with an almost beefy aspect. This would go well with a gravied steak. Mega-malty. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Medium orange brown, slight head lasted fairly well. Aroma was caramel and bread. Flavor was bready with a nice hint of hoppy floral notes on the finish. Really a nice little beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2007
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear copper body topped by creamy, medium tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, cherry, caramel, some alcohol. Taste is sweet, caramel/cookie, cherry, light alcohol that complements the big maltiness. Smooth, medium-full body. A bit sweet for my taste, but still pretty enjoyable.
