Very nice double bock. Reedish brown in sweet aroma and nutty flavor. One of my favorites. Also very close to home. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Pours a nice reddish brown with a good amount of foamy offwhite head that lasts. Aroma is sweet, nutty, rich and creamy, oaky, grapes, and sugar. Flavor is nutty and bitter, brown sugary, and dry. Overall, a pretty good brew. matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2005

A redish chestnut colored body sits beneath a faint wispy tan head. The aroma is largely nutty with notes of toasted honey wheat bread. The flavor is just that… sweet with honey and maple syrup, almonds and big suggestions of cashew are prominent. The malts are powerful and fruity. There is a hint of the higher alcohol on the right
middle of each sip. A light citrus peel bitterness hits in the finish. Another beer that is leaving my lips sticky and my belly warm.
A sublte bock with a very malty taste. Alcohol is hidden but the beer brings forth a smooth warm feeling. Copper color with an excellent aroma. Creamy and frothy poor with a smooth finish. Great with voodoo shrimp! Ebonheart (12) - Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2005
My favorite new beer (for me at least). Strong and hoppy, with a manly 8.2% alcohol, it has a happy flavor, though it may be better in the fall and spring than the heat of summer.

Sampled at le Mondial de la bière 2005. Reddish amber pour with a thin offwhite head. Mild aroma of malt and dark fruits. Fortunately the flavor is more powerfull and assertive, there’s rich malt with dark fruit, the finish is bitter and roasty. The body is medium with a creamy texture and the carbonation is moderate.
