UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 500ml courtesy of Don. Thanks! Tulip.A: Plum and brown with a quarter inch lasting head. Decent legs.N: Clove, brown sugar, malt, soy sauce, prune. Has a deep appreciable sweetness that never ventures to cloying.T: Complex. Brown sugar, some earthy hop bitterness. A hint of smokiness and some soy sauce, but not as a flaw. Incredibly balanced. Clove again. Cola. Breadiness like a dark rye loaf.M: Rich and full. Very clean.O: A rewarding beer. A veritable loaf of bread in a glass. Extremely glad t have tried this, and a beer I will revisit whenever I get the chance.

Tap at churchkey in DC. Dark copper plum with thick off white head. Dark fruit nose. Malty. Malty sweet and tangy grain. Slight caramel taste. Otherwise the malty grain dominates. Dark fruit is low in the taste. Finish is ok. Medium body. I wanted more layers and depth, but decent.

Quite impressive in aroma and taste: quite similar to Schlenkerla’s products, but without the bitterness added from the smoked malts. Strong lager with quite unique presence of malts and sweetness... overall, pretty good doppelbock.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown, little light brown head. Malt: roast, coffee, dried fruit, raisins. Still less "black" than a porter. No hops. Light bitterness, no sweetness. Heavy bitterness in the long finish. A little too much for my taste. Medium body, smooth. Overall nice but I generally don’t like coffee notes.
