This review may be suspect, because the beer tastes "skunky" to me.

Purchased at Total Wines in Delaware. 330ml bottle poured into standard beer glass.
Color is burgundy/brown - not too dark. Very foamy head that doesn't last long.
Smell is a tiny bit skunky - and beyond that, not much aroma.
Taste is just... "off." Is that a hint of a sherry taste, or is it the skunkiness? I'm not sure. Whatever it is, it's not awful, just not very appealing.
Mouthfeel is slightly watery. Carbonation is mild.

Probably would not get this again, even if I could find a bottle with a recent brew date.

Reddish as it can be with a thin head with short retention but leaving some laces.
Sweet aroma with predominant notes of corn and grapes.
Flavor with notes of corn, caramels, toasted malts, some herbal hops, maybe cinnamon and red fruits, but not much than that.
Medium dry aftertaste with a low bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.2% is definitely at home, but it stays quietly at his room.
The apparent content of adjunct and sweetness level did bother me a bit. I would pass it next time.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of April 2015. Acquired a while back from a supermarket. Described on the label as a bottom-fermented bock beer.

A: Poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. A dark reddish-amber hue with light carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy off-white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding.

S: Aroma of grainy malt with hints of caramel, mild fruitiness, yeast esters, subtle stewed leaves and faint husks. A twinge of booze in the background.

T: Tastes of grainy caramel malt with a delicate sweet finish. Notes of caramel, husky grain, mild fruitiness, yeast esters, muted barley sugar and stewed leaves. A touch of alcohol in the background. Slightly sweet, followed by a subtle, leafy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with pleasant carbonation and good body. Lightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of mild caramel malt, faint barley sugar and stewed leaves.

O: Pretty good - not up to German standards perhaps but drinkable enough. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are sweet, malty and mildly fruity. Nice body. Possesses a subtle but rounded character that goes down easily. Worth trying if you come across it.
