I grabbed a sampler on my way out of the Cheddar Curtain. This one was a great brew.
Complex and hinting at the sweetness of a Monschof Kellerbeir

Excellent rendition of the style. I really don't love the style, that is the problem. A little sweet for my taste buds. Tastses like a true German sweet bock beer though.
I guess I'd have to say that they nailed it.

12oz bottle, snifter glass. Pours a darker caramel brown body, one finger white head, fair retention and a little bit of lacing. Smell is clean chocolate, toffee, a bit of caramel, grainy sweetness, perhaps a bit of mild orange marmalade. Flavour follows; nice balanced caramel and chocolate, toffee, malt, a bit of toasted grain, light citrus. Medium lighter body, good carbonation, nice mildly earthy caramel and chocolate finish. Enjoyable, easy drinking, lots of flavour to it.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 2/19/2017. Pours sightly hazy/cloudy deep ruby red, light copper/brown color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, raisin, plum, fig, cherry, and apple; with lighter notes of nuttiness, roast, toffee, molasses, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, raisin, plum, fig, cherry, and apple; with lighter notes of nuttiness, roast, toffee, molasses, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. herbal/grassy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, dark fruit, nuttiness, toffee, molasses, light chocolate/coffee, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Nicely clean on lager flavors, not too fruity/yeasty. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly slick/sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.7%. Overall this is a very nice traditional bock. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter finish. Rich, clean, and complex Dark/Munich malt complexity, with some mild earthy hop balance; and complimenting dark fruity notes. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Pours a reddish brown color with a small tan head. Smell and taste is heavy with dark fruits and carmel. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall, another good one from Wisconsin.

This is a very good beer, nice off white head and good lacing, too bad it is only a seasonal beer. Overall a very good bock and worth a trip Wisconsin to try.

This beer, with it's low abv and non-barrel characteristics, achieves what many of these BIG, MASSIVE, HIGH ABV beers do not. Subtlety. Only with patience can you taste the complexity that this beer has to offer. Dark fruits, caramel, coffee are amongst many other things going on in this beer. I just drank a 6 month old bottle and it tastes even better than the fresh ones. Drink it at room temperature and give it time. It certainly won't explode in your mouth (and if that's what you're looking for, this beer is not for you) but it will slowly massage your taste buds until your mouth is nice and relaxed...and happy.

L- Pours a murky, reddish brown with a thin, tan head.
S- carmel and dark cherry and other dark fruit.
T- Dark fruit and malt with some coffee notes sneaking in. Finishes with some good Belgian yeast. Some chocolate notes drift from the light coffee. I like.

Poured 12oz bottle into a tulip. It has a muddy red/brown color with a 1.5 finger tan head and leaves some spotty lacing on my glass. The aroma offers up a nice bready malt with some caramel, toffee, chocolate and cola. The flavor leads with the soft caramel sweetness from the nose, as well as some chocolate nutty notes, sweet bread, and well as toffee and malted milk. The mouthfeel is silky and full, with very little carbonation. Overall this was a very nice beer, and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
