Poured from 1.09 pint bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Dark rich ruby brown. Thick off-white head, significant lacing. Light carbonation barely visible.

Smell: Beautiful bready malt, caramel, toffee, dark fruit - plums and dates. If I had to smell nothing else for the rest of my life this would be a totally reasonable choice.

Taste: Malt! Dark, sweet roasty malt. Chocolaty bread washes into molasses and caramelized sugar. Faintly nutty, oaky.

Mouthfeel: Luscious, thick, saturated and round. Creamy, low carbonation. Alcohol thickness present and noticeable.

Overall: Incredibly flavor-drenched and perfect for a chilly late-fall weekend. From a guy who doesn't ordinarily like bocks, this is a mind-blowing brew. Weihenstephaner is magical.

In the aroma is rich, pronounced maltiness akin to toasted bread crust and molasses with a slight chocolatey undertone. The body is dark brown/mahogany with deep ruby highlights; it has a creamy khaki head which leaves lots of lacing. The flavor is smooth with lots of roasted, somewhat chocolatey malt. It's sweet but not overly so with prune-like fruitiness, a spicy accent, and just a little woody bitterness. The finish is deliciously grainy sweet. The body is medium-full with plenty of carbonation and considerable bite; the alcohol is hardly noticeable.

All-around solid. Intense but very drinkable. Smooth and frothy but crisp. Rich, flavorful, and satisfying with lots of delicious malt and dark fruitiness. The 7.4% ABV is very well hidden.
