Pours mahogany and reddish with a large soapy tan head. The aroma has sourdough-like malt, brown sugar, spicy and ice cream malt. Medium / full body that’s lightly prickly and slick. The flavor starts with lots of brown sugar, dough malt and syrup. The finish is sweet and spicy. Okay.

500 ml flip top bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma has caramel, light chocolate, dark fruit, and a hint of sourness. The flavor is lightly roasted, caramel, dark fruit, and a little alcohol. This was a bit thin and lightly carbonated. Not bad, but not something I would seek out again.

I determined that the body of the beer was thinner than I’d anticipated when I poured it in my glass and it just kind of dumped in with minimal stick on the glass. At first there was a nice brown head but this quickly dissipated and overall it was fairly flat. It had an attractive crimson hint to the opaque black color of the beer. The taste was watery, having a roastiness that overdominated dominated the flavor. In fact this roastiness was the only flavor I could decipher. Not undrinkable but not very good either.

This is a bad beer. Pours a copper color, thin head. Bad aroma, skunk and sweet malt. Flavor is a little better, sweet malt, caramel, hints of fruit, and wet sock. It’s pretty thin. Not good.

.5liter swingtop. I always look forward to doppelbock season, re-try my favorites, and see what new ones manage to get into the local bottleshops. This one has a great frothy pour and attractive deep garnet color. Aroma is faint and doesn’t present much complexity. A faint whiff of banana is the strongest impression I got. Flavor carries some hint of smoke and a peach/plum character. There is really no finish to speak of. All in all, a drinkable, but forgettable doppelbock.

Narnad (1462) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Beers comes out a med/dark brown with ruby hints through the light. Thin off white head and medium carbonation to compliment the beer. Aroma is fairly light of nobles hops, light dark fruit notes, some toffee and light spices are present. The yeast used for this brew remind me of an under lying flavor I have seen in another one of their beers, kinda of a sour background. Flavor starts off with some smokey prune flavor, changing into a sour and noble hops middle and finishes with a malty alcohol flavor. Moderate heaviness to the beer. Overall the beer isn’t bad but is a bit sour in the middle and carries a little stale off flavor toward the end.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Rich chestnut brown pour with a ruby hue and subdued head. Dank German hops. but a piquant, spicy wheatiness prick the nose. An interesting swirl of notes develops. Dark grain. Huskiness. Muskiness. A touch of corn. Caramelized brown sugar and malt. Disjointed mouthfeel. Dank hops and tannic grains. Some mallt and wheatiness mixed in. Off-flavors of tart bitterness. Peppered. Burnt caramel finish.

trevor211 (1305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Very pretty pour! A transparent deep ruby with a dense head that leaves a foamy layer on top. Dark fruits, brown sugar and some earthy notes to the aroma, with lots of sweet and smokey malts. Rich flavor, nice mouthfeel - thick, if not a little flat. Some woody notes bring out the smokey flavor just enough to counter what would otherwise be far too sweet a brew. This is thoroughly enjoyable - I think it deserves a much higher rating than it has.

dwyerpg (4566) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 18, 2009
A slight malt aroma. Not much. Very full thick head with some graininess to it. This is a nice beer. A little sweetness, some chocolate, the thick head dominates the simple beer.

Bottleworks. Interesting smokey aroma. Pours a clear light brown. A bit carbonated with medium body but has a great finish
