Cute little growled. So, this beer is full of buffalo and not much bock. Seems like there might be a nice beer somewhere underneath the overbearing barel aging. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish orange pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nice clove, banana, esters and phenols into a bit of bourbon, oak, vanilla, nice caramel and toffee notes as well. Taste is a mix of sweet vanilla, oak into some bourbon, some toffee and molasses into phenolic notes from the yeast, clove, finishing sweet, slightly dry. islay (3004) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2015
4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub in Minneapolis, Minnesota as part of Town Hall Barrel Aged Week. Consumed on 2-19-15. Pours a hazy, dark amber with a small amount of beige head. Musty, dry smell. Sharp and acidic aroma. Orange scent. Very pleasant flavor. Nice, malty, and sweet but tartly wheaten in the finish. Quite pleasant taste. Medium body. Lively and frothy in the palate. Very nice beer overall.

Draft at brewery during barrel aged week. Distinctive nose, dark fruits and candi sugar. Tastes like it smells. Murky dark brown with a thin ring of off white head. Not really picking up qualities of a weizenbock, but hell, I'll trust them. Excellent. deyholla (12300) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a near clear earthy amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of bourbon and vanilla with underlying caramel and wheat notes. Flavor has lots of caramel and born on with a bit of wheat growing through the finish. Roonai (319) - - FEB 18, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Nose is lots of raisin and heavy on barrel. Taste is the same. Good booze and lots of dried fruits and dates. Maltyness comes through a good amount. Not usually a huge fan of these notes but well executed/ still overwhelmed by what’s going on and couldn’t have more than one glass of it Huhzubendah (3740) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2014
