So, I've made it to the big leagues....

Bottle poured into chalice, three finger golden brown head.

Smells of chocolate, malt, and coffee. As the night continued, and the brew warmed, more and more of its character became present.

Tastes of chocolate, coffee, grain, and alcohol!

Mouthfeel: Thick, like a bock should be.

Overall, this is a beer that will warm you up on a winter's night. This beer's dark brown body screams warmth and comfort. Let the two billy goats on the label show you a beer to be proud of, better yet...

Let them show you a celebration.

A: Rich brown body. Dense looking. Khaki foam on top maintains nice levels and consistent lacing

S: Roasted malts. Black strap molasses. Rich fresh baked bread. Sweetness.

T: The black strap molasses character dominates with subtle undertones of caramel, bread, biscuits, roasted malts and a dash of cream. A tiny bit of alcohol as the beer warmed.

M: Smooth. Silky. Lower carbonation levels work well here. Nice finish.

D: The overwhelming sweetness becomes cloying... by the end of this glass I was done with this... however... i'd return to one in another session for sure.

I may have picked the wrong time to have this, but I wanted malt. The room is probably 90F, and the beer is rapidly approaching that.

Standard 12 oz. bottle with a cool charm. No wonder the beer is $3.50/bottle. Nice deep umber though quite clear. Even finishes without sediment. Aroma is sweet, smokey, and malty. A big malt wave fills my mouth at first sip, warm and sweet. No trace of hops in the aroma, nor as a finishing on the beer. The aftertaste is almost alcoholic, and cereal. This is a wonderful beer, but it was a poor choice for a hot night.

This beer is very enjoyable. Easy to drink, with good flavors. It is sweet, but not too sweet. The feeling in your mouth and while you drink it is smooth, but not syrupy or thick. All around a very tasty brew. I enjoyed the beer on a cold night and it seemed to go very well.

Found this one at a local beer store. Been waiting to try this brew...

A: Looks perfect! A nice dark iced tea like color with a thick white head that slowly dissipates into a white lace that sits on top.

S: Smells great. Dark fruits with subtle hints of vanilla. Smells awesome!

T: Tastes good. I taste apple and pear upfront with a hint of booziness on the backend. Good, but not great. A little too watery for me

M: Perfect amount of carbonation. Light enough to drink but heavy enough to taste great. Perfect!

D: Goes down super easy. Very easy drink.

All in all, this is a very good brew. It has a nice fruit taste with a slight booziness. This a great brew if you like less hoppiness and more flavor that goes down easy.

Pours a dark brown. Light orangy-reddish tint. Decent amount of light brown head. Looks pretty solid. Smells a bit bland. Light roast, yeast, some sweet fruit as well. Tastes similar. Nice light roast, yeast, sweet dark fruits. Really nice flavour profile. I can't believe I hadn't tried this before! Its really enjoyable. Well carbonated. Good mouthfeel. Overall very solid

A- dark brown body with a creamy tan head.

S- roasted malt, maybe a bit of chocolate.

T- very malty and sweet. finishes pretty dry, almost a coffee taste at the end. great!

M- very smooth with great carbonation. light to medium body

D- this is deceivingly potent beer which makes it harder to want to drink several of. i can see why this ranks on the top 100 beers in the world. id love to have several of these.
