12 ounce bottle into a Weizen glass. Bottled 11/10/14, had late January, 2016.

Have had this before, first written review. Pours a medium amber color, a little hazy, with a one finger head and some foamy lacing. Good amount of agitation, streaming bubbles for quite a while. The smell brings malt, caramel, figs, molasses, some yeast, a little chocolate, hint of smoke. The taste is more malt forward; also caramel, bread, raisins, some fig, a little molasses and chocolate. A light bitterness on the finish. Smooth, creamy, the taste lingers.

Might have pushed this a couple of months too long, but it is definitely better with some age on it, than it is fresh. Maybe not at the top of the list for the style, but a solid beer that is true to the style and enjoyable to drink. Good flavor and feel. Just hold off for a while....

Beer #8 from the Advent Calendar. Bottled 11.10.14 and enjoyed from a teku.

Mammoth pours a very dark ruby brown with a substantial white head. The nose is full of ripe bananas; cloves, orange peel, and similar spices; rich, sweet malts; and wheat. Smells a lot like a Hefeweizen, but sweeter and with an almost Belgian kind of funk to it. Taste follows the nose closely, with a sweet and pronounced alcohol punch. Again, much like a sweeter version of a Hefeweizen. Mouthfeel is a bit heavier than medium-bodied; it's slightly viscous, kind of spicy, and dry.

I enjoyed Mammoth quite a bit. It's a solid beer, especially on a chilly day, but I don't see myself coming back to this beer or this style. Maybe a bit too sweet and boozy for my taste. Caveat: this is the first Weizenbock I've had.

Had on tap at Bad Apple in Chicago, served in a 16oz. Hofbräuhaus stein.

A: Pours a very hazy dark brown with a pillowy one inch, bone colored head that has some great retention. The head sticks around for quite sometime and leaves some sticky and plentiful lace down the whole glass.

S: The peppery and clove like yeast hits you in the nose right away. There is some banana bread like sweetness and some oaty malts as well.

T: The taste is much like nose. Nice notes of spicy fruity esters and banana like yeast. It is a touch more peppery than the nose. The malty sweetness on the finish brings it together.

M: Full bodied in flavor, but not to heavy at all. The drinkability was very nice and the stein went down easy. Carbontion was spot on.

O: A very solid brew from an up and coming brewery. I'm excited to try more from Greenbush in the new future as more kegs come to Chicago.
