341ml Bottle from the Potsdam NY IGA for $3

Appearance - Slightly hazy brown colour with an average size beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 2 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, dark fruits, herbal notes, anise

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and red grapes. There are also some dates, herbal flavours, and some molasses. It ends with a malty dark fruit aftertaste.

Overall - Mouthfeel and appearance need work, but the taste is pretty solid. Not a world beater by any means, but a decent beer that is worth trying once.

Enjoyed this 12 oz bottle in a large snifter glass

A: Pours a dark brown hue with some ruby highlights and an off-white head that slowly dissipates quickly and solid a wispy lace.

S: Caramel malty aroma with sweet background.

T: Similar to the smell there is a strong caramel bock flavor with a sweet malty backbone.

M: Full body and minimal carbonation.

O: Decent bock – good flavors and aromas.

Bottle > Pint Glass
A- Pours a reddish brown, under a finger of khaki head, no lacing.
S - Super sweet malt, a little booze, cherries, and some odd spice.
T - Overly sweet malt floods your palate then you get a brief taste of mixed spices.
M - Sticky and clingy, not good.
O - Not a bock I would go for again, thats for sure.
