COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional German dopplebock. The Bamboozleator has dark caramel aroma and flavor and a long malty finish. The name pays homage to the German tradition that you should not notice the alcohol in a dopplebock until you try standing up, only then will you know you have been Bamboozled.

Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2008
Poured from a growler; tepid thinned red. Pungent, foul canned green bean, compost, and vegetal steam aroma with a puzzling follow through of raw dark fruit sugar and nuttiness. That earthy nastiness is just opressive and unavoidable. Big wet cardboard, canned corn and compost chunkiness in the flavor; lots of overripe fruitiness of raspberry and banana in the mid palate. Palate slick, big and coating; finishes on wet, semisweet grassiness and burning earth. This is either an example gone south or one that was far past hope from the start. Thanks for sharing, Bob!

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
Skyview (5208) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2008
On draught at the brewery/brewpub taproom in northern Madison, Wisconsin.. Pours a semi-clear cola brown brew with a creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and thick off-white ring. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some flowery and grassy hops, a touch of dark tea, brown sugar and a touch of raisin. Taste is medium to full-bodied, light carbonation with a thick malty character and very flavored with tastes of caramel malt, raisins, dark pitted fruit and a touch of chocolate. Finish is slightly metallic while the high alcohol is well-hidden, it also has some aftertaste of tart brown sugar and a mild bitterness that lingers around after the finish.
