A - Rusty, little to no head, no lacing.
S - Raisins, bourbon, prunes, a little bit of chocolate and yeast.
T - Caramel and toasted bread in the front, a little grassiness and hop bitterness in the mid, cedar and medicinal on the finish.
M - A little chewy, heavy, rich, definite alcohol heat.
O - Not a beer I'm going to revisit often, but glad I tried it nonetheless. It feels unbalanced and hastily assembled.

Right from the start, I really didnt know what style of beer this was going to be. I could not find anything on the label.
It pours a fairly dark brew with , for me a total absence of any head.

The nose was a bit on the alcohol side, perhaps age in a bourbon cask. There seemed to be a good amount of malt here., but beyond that, I did not pick up anything else

The taste was big, but did not hold up to what I thought it was going to be. It was smoother and easier drinking. The malt hung onto my tounge and throat long after I finished this beer.

I was totally shocked, when I found out that this was a bock beer. This is something I need to educate myself on. The differences between a barley wine and a bock beer.

From: Binny's, Schaumburg, IL
Date: Best before April 2011
Glass: Founders snifter

Atwater's Teufel weizenbock is a sweet, somewhat caramel and cocoa-like version of the style that's lacking in complexity from esters and phenols that others in the genre feature. I could never really find myself enjoying the mix of flavors in this beer that much, and while that doesn't mean it's "bad," it's not one I'd return to, as I could just purchase four Aventinus bottles for the same price as a four-pack of this.

Pours a 2cm tall head of beige-colored foam, made up of small-sized bubbles, creating a frothy appearance. Retention is above average at around 1.5 minutes, the foam fading to a thin ring around the perimeter of the glass. Lacing is good, with some large patterns and medium numbers of dots clinging to the sides of the glass. Body is a dark golden orange color, with light bringing out brighter golden orange hues. Carbonation visible through the lightly hazy (20-30% opacity) body, moderate in number and activity.

Aroma is sweet, dense, of fairly rich medium-dark caramel with a bit of yeast, prune and cocoa, but noticeably nonexistent are the banana, bubblegum, nutmeg, and clove that I expect in weizenbocks.

Front of palate tastes light caramel-like sweetness with herb-like and woodsy hop bitterness, pear and apple-like fruit esters, slight yeast. Mid-palate of light caramel, prunes, modest cocoa, dry bread, faint raspberries, spicy ethanol, and modestly herbal and bitter hops. Back of palate detects herbal and bitter hops, cocoa, moderately dark caramel sweetness, and modest spicy ethanol. Aftertaste of light caramel, cocoa, spicy ethanol, bitter and strongly herbal hops.

Beer is medium-bodied, with carbonation of medium-low intensity, resulting in a smooth (3/5), somewhat foamy (2/5) mouthfeel that's suitable for the high ethanol content of the beer. Closes dryly, with medium-high levels of stickiness clinging to the palate.
