A brown-red beer with a big vigorous head that falls quickly to a thin bone colored layer over the beer. Very attractive.
The smell is campfire smoke, rootbeer, dark fruits, dark bready malts, caramel and toffee. What a great combo! Alcohol is not noticeable and at 8% that is something of an accomplishment.
The flavor mimics the nose with the smoke and rootbeer taking a backseat to the dark fig-like fruits, dark malty bread-like notes. The caramel adds a nice sweetness to this beer that is nicely balanced. What a treat. Alcohol is not detected in the taste.
Mouthfeel is a touch biting for me but the heft of the beer is very pleasant.
I could drink one after another of these, although I'd probably fall off my chair after a while.

Poured from a 1 pint .9 oz bottle into a a tulip glass. Now the most interesting part is not what came out if the bottle but what stayed in it. At some point I had stored the bottle on its side in a wine fridge (for 3 months after buying it) and found an exorbitant amount of yeast stuck to the side of the bottle. Now to me this is a good thing keeping natural unfiltered flavor with the brew especially the Bavarian style. Unlike any other beer this was a cloudy chocolate brown color. There was large amount of white head when poured violently from the bottle. Hints of chocolate malt taste similar to the color. Has the sweetness that accompanies bocks but also the breast wheat vibe. Has a good balance between wheat and malt with an elevated abv of 8.2% which is barely noticeable to the pAlate.
Don't think I've had a beer of this style before. It seems like American craft brewers would have their work cut out for them with this style.
