12 oz can. Pours dark ruby amber with a small off white head that quickly goes to a thin dusting that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is roasted caramel malts, wheat and some coffee with some light metallic notes.

The flavor is roasted caramel and toffee and nuts with a little stale coffee and a medium bitter finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a little watery.

Overall, it's just OK. The coffee flavors are stale and not great and the bock base seems a bit uninspired.

12 oz can served cold into a shaker pint. Can stamped 20 Feb 14.

Taster's Choice is a dark brown lager with good clarity. The head is thin and short lived.

Aroma is sweet and malty like a doppelbock with just a hint of coffee.

Flavor is similar with the coffee being a subtle addition to a solid base beer. Malty sweet up front, mild bitterness from the hops, and a smooth coffee aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and perfectly carbonated. Balanced and easy to drink.

Overall an interesting take on the classic German style. Unfortunately just a one-off.
