I love the midwestern winters (call me nuts, everybody else does), and this beer just adds to the enjoyment and anticipation!

Pours nice and clear black with a red hue to it. It appears flat in the glass though, making it less attractive than I would want.

Smells nice and malty and sweet. I love beers like this.

Taste is nice. Really rich in malt. Heavy body, not thin at all. Syrupey.

Mouthfeel is rich and thick. Dispite the lack of fizz, the mouthfeel shows lots of creaminess.

Finish is oily and ends up with sweetness.

This is one of my favoirte offerings from this brewery. Get it if you can find it!

Continuing being underwhelmed with Sprecher beer, I had this one. Maybe it is just that nothing stood out. Maybe I was just in a weird headspace (my dog had just eaten my sofa), or maybe the beer just wasn't anything special. This beer again, was okay. It hit the low standard I have for craft beer. Is it a macro? no? then it's okay. I'll drink it.

This pours a medium brown color with not too much of a head. The aroma is very malty. The flavor is very well balanced with a delicious toasted, malt flavor and a bit of carbonation to give it some volume. Probably one of the better seasonal offerings from Sprecher's. Overall very nicely made.

3.83/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

LOOK: 12 oz twist off cap. Brown with an off white soapy foam. Recedes to a ring and leaves behind no real lacing.

SMELL: Bready toasted malts. A hint of smoke and fruity yeast. Malty dark lager beer.

TASTE: Caramel malts and a small note of dark fruits. Nutty, powdered cocoa notes from the malt are welcome here. Really no hint of alcohol, this is a deceiving brew. Hops are mild and provide a light citrusy note and soft bitterness.

FEEL: Medium bodied, medium level of carbonation. Sweet malty flavors linger into a pleasant finish.

OVERALL: A nice malty bock from Sprecher. I could easily drink mass quantities of this. Good flavor!
