look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- A deep dark amber hue, slightly cloudy, thin tan head that dissipates quickly
S- Caramel, brown sugar, slight holiday spice, very little hop character
T- very rich, velvety caramel flavors, turning into burn cream, slight cinnamon, no hop flavor whatsoever
M-Nice carbing for this beer velvety mouthfeel for a rich bock and it is really the best feature of this beer.
O- a very richly flavored Bock with a nice velvety finish, a good malt profile, but it needs some hop interest, even for a low hop style i want something!

Fruity, estery nose
Pours deep dark brown, 1 finger head, good lacing
Deep rich malt flavors on the palate with a touch of roast and a hop bitter accent on the finish.
The texture is very creamy, medium body and medium high carbonation.
I have had this a few time and at least twice it was a touch skunky. It's a decent beer but it has a little too much roast and bitterness for a bock.
