I can't really add anything that Jason Alstrom didn't already say about the characteristics of this beer. All I can say is that it is my favorite beer and I look forward to it very year. I've had it in bottles and on tap, and it has never disappointed. I do agree that the ABV is hard to believe. It is a dangerously smooth and drinkable beer at 9.5 % ABV.

Another great US craft weizenbock from Ramstein. Very dark appearance with lots of deep-roasted malt and fruity esters. The finish is burnt wood and earthy hops which is different than the typical Bavarian versions. Personally, I prefer the burnt caramel notes to the fruitier German weizenbocks. I really wish this and the other Ramstein brews were easier to find in PA since availability is important to a beer consumer. Fortunately, I came across this one at Capone's and am very thankful for that.

Appearance is quite dark, almost a stout like appearance with nothing more than a tiny rim of head. Nose is unique and very malty. Notes of grape candy, wheat, and a hint of soy sauce and cocoa. Taste has fruity components up front with emphasis on grapes and maple syrup, this is followed by notes of carob and figs with a touch of balsamic vinegar on the finish. Mouthfeel is somewhat thick with low carbonation. Overall, this is a very unique and complex weizenbock, however the flavors just don't agree with me.
