Pours a hazy, brown color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, dark citrus, and hint of hop. Fits the style of a Weizenbock. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of dark citrus, hint of wheat, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, aroma, and body.

Enjoyed on-tap (#12) @ the iTap House in Chesterfield, MO. for $2.50(Missouri Brewery Night Special), usually $5. Poured from the Orange & Wooden Tap Handle into a 312 Weizen Glass (perfect for the style!).

Appearance- Coolest looking bock I've ever seen! Has a nice Dark Caramel top and then a clear, caramel/light amber bottom. Looks almost layered like a black/tan. Has two fingers of frothy, white head that kept a good retention. Not much lacing but not worried about it this time around.

Aroma (Smell)- Very roasty smell from the beginning and then have hints of pepper, apricot/peach, and decent amount of alcohol background. Very good.

Assay (Taste)- Starts off extremely malty and bready. Hints of the roast in the smell come from the malt for sure. Enjoy the hops used in the beer without a doubt! Nice, well-balanced beer and has so much complexity that it rocks!

AfterTaste (Mouthfeel)- Medium Bodied, Nice Viscosity, Smooth, and leaves a burnt caramel flavor on the palate. Better than most Weizenbocks.

Average (Overall)- Everything about this bock was awesome! Great drinkability, well rounded, and hits the style with a punch. Second beer from Urban Chestnut (first was Winged Nut) and will be promoting hugely! Cheers U.B.!

For some reason, wanted to switch up all of my Categorizes to Begin with "A". Man, do I have time on my hands while waiting for friends to get ready to drink beer.

Very cloudy dull copper color in a tall tulip/ pilsner glass. Lightly carbonated. Bananas, clove, yeast in the fairly sweet aroma. Surprisingly light bodied. Beer is spicy with cloves and some ripe banana- light. Sweet overall with nice spicy balance. Finish is almost peppery. Etoh moderately warming. Aftertaste boozy with touch of spice cake.
