22. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head. Light stringy lace. Aluminum nose. Creamy heavy body, soft carb. Graham crackers and aluminum on the mid palate. They must have intended for this to turn out differently.

22oz bottle. Pours ruby amber with a small fizzy off-white head that quickly goes to a thin film.
The aroma is sweet caramel and toffee, maple and honey.
The flavor is sweet sugary caramel and toffee with a slightly bitter drying finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, the syrup adds interesting notes to the doppelbock. It’s a bit on the sweet side for me.

A bock that has diabetes. Super sweet, way out of the bounds in terms of sweetness of a doppelbock.

Light hazy amber, thin head. Aroma of caramel, syrup, roast, honeyed biscuit. Taste is roasty, nice bitter, fungal earthy finish, mostly sweet though. Not a huge fan of this.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome,clear ruby red in color. Minimal to no head. Lacing is poor. I smell maple at first sniff. It reminds me of the fresh Caramel popcorn mom made me on wizard of oz night when I was a kid. Medium-bodied beer with fizzy carbonation. It leaves a maple bar feeling on your lips. It had a nice sweet finish. I personally liked this beer and would have again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Poured fiery, brighter orange with a deeper beige head. The aroma picked up fresh, greener hops and what was definitely the birch syrup over aged nutty notes and a bit of molasses.. leafy, very earthy notes on the back of the nose. The flavor opened with woodsy tartness and peppery hoppage, with condensed, aged caramel, vanilla bean, and birch syrup backing it up.. finished sweet and spicy, with good use of the syrup and fresh hops.. good twist on the style. Medium-bodied with fuller carbonation in the right places on the palate.. great balance between the components.. I’d love to see this in a 6 pack.
