ClarkVV (5226) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Draught at Sunset Grill, early 2008. Wasnt sure what this was at the time of drinking it, but thought it was some Belgian Strong Golden, though I suppose a heller doppel bock is reasonable. It says fermented to a dry finish, and while I wont call it overly dry, by any means, its not obnoxiously sweet and the alcohol isnt overbearing. Warming allowed for some DMS like flavors and the hops never really made an appearance, but for some floral, lightly dusty notes upon opening. Not offensive, though Im rating it more of a Belgian ale than a doppel bock, which it dosent really resemble in the least bit.

oldrtybastrd (4888) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Pours a dark hazy brown color. Aromas of bread, malt, and some fruit. Flavor has a touch of sweet malt and clove, I think. Overall, not to bad.

zubblwump (23) - Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Drank straight from the bottle. Smell is not at all pleasant...something like rotten vegetables. Taste isn’t any better. Sort of fits the name, though. Tastes like a stagnant swamp. Bought a 6 pack and am leaving the rest.

Am I crazy or the aroma smells like light black olives brine ? ,I was expecting some saltiness with the taste as my brain registered olives!, and I was right!, there is some saltiness that my tongue registered all the way through drinking it, nothing great, but its something different to try, alcohol is heavy,and it will get you tipsy !!

Nothing to talk big deal about this one. It was nice and great to drink but just a strong beer from a semi craft brewer.

hershiser2 (1827) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2016
Bomber, Market Street Wine Shop Uptown. Pours golden, perhaps slightly hazy, with an inch of off-white head. Aroma of sweet grasses, light fruit. Taste is a bit of funky grasses, glue, yeast. It’s not bitter... not very sweet, but definitely sweeter than I expected.

Gespuccian (77) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2016
Pours a golden brown. Aroma of is slightly sweet, malt forward. Flavor is caramel, malt. Mouthfeel is smooth, wet, full. You feel the weight of some alcohol. There's some German hops, but nothing very bitter. Finish is slightly sweet, smooth. This is pretty good, and light enough to be drinkable even with the higher ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 355 ml from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with JFK10000. Clear golden, medium white head. Malty, sweet, fruity, light hoppiness. Alcohol well hidden. Ok, I guess.

Sweet honey and bread aroma. Pours a cloudy orangish gold with a thick bright white head that fades quickly. Smooth refreshing. Honey and yeast with a hint of bitter finish. Thick soft mouthfeel. Very nice.
