4.25/5 rDev +11.8%
Aroma came across as mildly stale. Initial taste had a really nice bock flavoring
(the right balance of malts and very low hop bitterness). Some "irony" taste evident that
eventually dissipated. Nice copper color and a good foam head. Very smooth and easy
drinking bock. This was definitely much better than I was expecting.

Sampling right now on 7/7/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a tulip glass.
Pours a deep amber in color with a good finger of a off-white head that settles back down to just along the sides of the glass. Some spotty lacing is seen. The aroma is of sweet malts and caramel for the most part. The taste has even more going on with the sweet & caramel malts coming together nicely with a hint of spice. Goes down very easy with no bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Perfect carbonation. A great brew!

Pours a HUGE, dense and soapy, tan-hued head that has impressive persistence and laces readily. Sweet malt aroma with a slightly spicy hoppiness. Crystal clear burnt umber. Sweet malt, toasted malt, warming booze, and a faint hoppiness in the background. Moves into a low-medium hoppiness, gets a little spicy, even. Then the finish is toasted malt and faint biscuit.
This is pretty nice, it's very toasted-malt-forward, and I like that. Slight hop spice, and not too sweet. And, of course, it has that velvety smooth German lager mouthfeel.
