22oz bomber into a snifter

A: Pours brown with a decent eggshell white head that fades to a ring and leaves a tiny bit of lacing on the glass.

S: The nose is typical of a Weizenbock with notes of banana, cloves, and chocolate/cocoa.

T: The taste follows the nose with nice flavors of cocoa, banana, and yeast esters along with a spice flavor I wasn't expecting. Pretty impressive from a brewery that is on a roll with this new series lately.

M: The feel is medium bodied and silky with a good amount of carbonation.

O: This is a tasty beer which was a bit surprising to me. I didn't think i'd like it but it's a good interpretation of the style. It could us a bit more complexity but that's nitpicking.

The goat on the label does indeed look pissed and poised to beat (hoof?) some elven ass! 22 oz bomber (from HEB) pours a dark brown color with a creamy cap of tan head. Not much for retention, but does leave some decent lace. Pretty good looking weizenbock here.

Lots of banana present, cloves are fairly mild and the wheat is soft and supple. I'm surprised at how good this beer smells, as I dont typically think of Rahr as capable of producing a great WB. Chocolate is there but the yeast takes center-stage...as it should.

Not bad, a bit phenolic and the alcohol is a tad on the rough side, but it has some nice yeast character and a smooth chocolate presence.
A few swirls of the glass knocks out some of carbonation and helps smooth things out. Sweetness is just about right, just enough to give it a rich body and offset the alcohol...which is big. Smooth out the alc and add a bit more roastily-smooth chocolate and this one would be damn near world-class. <clap, clap>...I think this is the best in the 'To Thee' series since the Bourbon Barrel Winter Warmer. Better as it warms to around maybe 45 or so. I would (and will) have no problem sending this tasty treat out in trades or BIFs.

First time to taste this product from Rahr Brewery. From a 22 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Poured a dark blackish brown and a generous two fingers of light brown head.

Smelled of Christmas spices like cloves, cinnamon, and brown sugar with very slight chocolate tones.

The taste was consistent with the smell and additionally provided very brief but well rounded flavors of chocolate, dates, and caramel. The finish was very flavorful and clean with moderate carbonation.

Mouth feel was very nice and fairly rich with more viscosity than I have experienced in other beers of this style.

The only complaint I have is the $8.49 price for the 22 oz bottle. This is more that most other breweries have priced 22 oz bottles and indeed as much as most craft beers are selling for in six packs. At a price point of $8 + other beer options are more attractive.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth.

The beer pours a medium brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the caramel and toffee with some wheat, bananas and cloves mixed in. Smells just like I think a weizenbock should smell.

The flavor follows suit. There is a lot of heavy malt notes with some caramel and toffee, with some nice spices including cloves and cinnamon. There is also a nice amount of banana mixed in with the flavor. The alcohol is detectable.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle from local bottle shop.
Pours a dark dark amber color with about a finger of head.
Nose is a lot of banana, sweetness, and what smells like the remnants of lactose... also a hint of a coriander. Taste is much better than I was expecting. I get a dark fruitiness, touch of cinnamon, and a hint if Belgian yeast and Munich malts.
Mouthfeel is pretty thick, shockingly so... well carbed, this was a pleasant surprise!

22 oz served in a Hefeweizen glass

A - Pours a burnt caramel brown with 2 fingers of tan head. Leaves behind a few strands of lacing.

S - Fried plantains and pears coated with caramelized brown sugar and a dusting of cocoa. Brown bread crust.

T - Follows the aroma with candied plantains, pears covered in burnt caramel, light chocolate, clove. Finishes with strong fruity esters, cocoa, and a woody bourbon flavor. Very nice!

M - Medium body and carbonation. Smooth and silky feel.

The fruit esters were a big component to this beer as well as a thick malt profile. Good roundness overall. Nice feel and quite tasty. Recommended!

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass, unknown freshness date, but I bet its ultra fresh. This pours a dark brown almost black color with a nice tan head which quickly dissipates. The smells are a little of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and a little fruit and sweetness. The feel is medium to thick and creamy. The taste is pretty good, there are the chocolate flavors along with some sweetness and fruit, but its less intense than I expected.
