Color is an amber brown color. The taste is malty with a little nutty taste. There is a very weak smell and the mouthfeel is very weak. This beer is like most other saranac beers, if it were a pitcher it would be todd wellmeyer. It's a solid but it will not overwhelm you. If you do not like a malty roasty bock this would be for you.

12 oz bottle.

Golden-amber color...condensed head of beige foam.
Sweet caramel aroma..mild, but there.
Nuts really come out in the flavor, blended with a sweet, biscuity malt profile. Some dark fruits come out more as it warms as well. Not too bad.
Medium bodied...some medicinal qualities in the finish, but nothing too distracting to the overall flavor of the brew.
An interesting bock with enough flavor to satisfy my tastebuds.
