Bottle No. 814-11 (picked up at the brewery, if I recall correctly)...

Excellent dark copper body with a thick, persistent head sitting on top. Decent malt aroma; caramel. Medium-body, smooth and clean on the palate. Pleasing biscuit malt taste with a slight fruitiness and a very nicely balancing hop bitterness; subdued alcohol warmth underneath.

A pretty good strong bock beer. Excellent job on taming the high ABV and emphasizing the grains and hops. Well-balanced and very easy drinking for a potent beer.

Bottle No. 1119-11 poured to NBB globe. The beer pours a translucent ruby brown, deep mahogany color with a decent 1.5 finger white bubbly head. Solid retention and nice lacing. The nose is mild though pleasant: Hints of citrus hops and sweet caramel malts. It seems as though perhaps dry hopped? Interesting aroma and rather inviting. No hint of alcohol. The flavor is much more complex than the nose gives on. Starts with a smooth malty caramel but not as sweet as expected. Mildly bitter with a noticeable citrus hop tone. Finishes with a hint of malt with a lingering hop, not expected and yet enjoyable! Faint hints of cherry and raisin with nubs of chocolate. Very approachable. Medium to full bodied with a thick rich creamy texture. Overall, this was a treat! I purchased this as it was the cheapest, albeit $15 bottle, at the brewery. it's nice coming in knowing nothing of a beer and really enjoying it! Recommended.

Here's a style you don't encounter every day...and it's coming from a brewery known for Belgian and "wild" ale ironically enough.
Cool by me.
Medium brown color. The beer looks to be relatively clear of particles, although there is a little yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Nice carbonation.
Definitely not as boozy as I expected. Even most of the German ones are like drinking rocket fuel. This one starts off malty, but not overly sweet, fading into a fairly hoppy finish. I'd assume the base is more of an American doppelbock based on the hops. The malts have a little bit of a chocolate and cherry character to them. That's what tends to come out in the nose, too.
Straightforward, but extremely tasty.
For something this strong, it's very drinkable.
A good brew from a brewery that usually doesn't go down this path.

Thanks to bman1113vr for sharing this bottle.

Pours a murky brown color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of malts, nuts and dark fruit. The flavor is strong caramel malt with some more nuttyness and dark fruits. Light mouthfeel and medium carbonation. There is some alcohol in the flavor, but not near as much as you would expect in an 11 percent beer.

Pours a dark woody brown with a thin tan head. Nose has dark pitted fruits, a touch of alcohol, spiy hops, oak and candy malts. Taste has raisins, figs, dates, wood, caramel and toffee. Could use a bit more depth and complexity, but still a nice beer. Medium body is well carbonated.
