750 ml corked and caged bottle pours a cloudy reddish brown color with a huge foamy light brown head that sticks around, leaves a sticky lacing in my glass. Spicy clove and dark fruit aroma, chocolate, caramel, clove, banana, plum and nutty flavors. Full bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel, alcohol comes out in the finish, very enjoyable.

Purchased at Fathead's.

Appearence: Pours a nice, dark burgundy with a thin tan head that dwindles after a few minutes. Cloudy as hell, with a decent amount of slow-moving carbonation.

Smell: Nice, strong sweet notes. Bubblegum comes to mind, as well as caramel and bready notes. Well balanced, with a tiny bit of spiciness.

Taste and Mouthfeel: At first, it's initially sweet with a little alcoholic spice. The bubblegum notes are still present, as well as molasses and caramel. It blends slowly into a little bit of lavender-type spices, then ends smooth and clean, with a wonderful bread aftertaste. The mouthfeel is rich and full.

Drinkability and Overall: This, by far, the best Flying Dog brew I've had. It's balanced, complex, and smooth. Plus, it tastes amazingly. Hopefully I can pick up a few more of these, and I can't wait to see the rest of the Wild Dog series. Cheers!

Hazed vermillion, thick cocoa-tan head, long-lasting. Essential, classic look for a bock of any standing. Nice, so far.

Aroma is smooth and sweet, associations first of nuts, toffee and malt, then spices, cloves and more. Uplifting, vivacious, and nearly ethereal. Nice, again.

Tastin' it: dark and fuzzy on the palate, but sweet and clean thereafter. Rich and caramel-y, with a nutty snap. Very tasty. Chocolatey. Have I said "yum" yet?
Very lively in the mouth, yet it fades off, as all good things must, alas. But while it does reside among the senses, it a bounty of delights.

Full bodied, lovely, flavorful texture, delicious finish, long and malty-sweet.

Another good dog!

Aromatic notes of clove, plum and apple waft to my nose as I pour this beer into my glass. The beer is a brilliantly clear, brown-amber color when held up to the light; otherwise it is an opaque, dark purple-brown color. The head is frothy and a pale amber color. The aroma is definitely clove like and also has a tart fruity component to it that reminds me of plums plus notes of figs and prunes. At the end a bit of banana comes through in the nose as well.

The taste is sweet and smooth up front, it finishes with a bit of spiciness and a strong banana cream note. This is a pretty rich beer and a 750ml bottle is definitely a pleasurable endeavor for the night. The finish has a smooth creamy, mouth-coating feel to it, but mixed in is a bit of spritzy carbonation and a spicy, peppery, almost ginger like note. There is also a hint of dark malt in the finish; a bit of burnt raisin, perhaps a hint of chocolate and a slight roast grain astringency.

This beer is quite good, as with the other beer in this series; I am quite impressed so far by the beers in the Wild Dog line-up. Banana cream is definitely a good descriptor for this beer, though there is a definite clove note here as well as other spice notes. As the beer warms up the chocolate note begins to pick up a bit; add a splash of chocolate to that banana cream please. There is a slight tart note here which adds to the drinkability of this beer. If I had to complain, this is indeed quite tasty, I would wish for a bit more malt complexity; this is quite nice as is though.
