2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pretty fizzy burnt caramel. Small-off white head that was gone quickly. Aroma is strong brown sugar and an unappealing minerally medicinal smell. Rich, overly malty flavor. The bottle is old and it is all kinds of oxidized, but it is ripe. Tastes like caramel Windex. Dumped.

This was not as advertised. Bland chocolate and malt flavors that finish way too quickly.

Bottle. Pours a near black. Medium tan head. Aroma of roast and chocolate. Flavor of roast, chocolate and caramel. Very creamy texture. Roasty mouthfeel. No bitterness. Very tasty. I really liked this. Will try again.

Dark burgundy, decent sized head. Smells like prune, raisin and red wine. Seems a little boozy, like its a little higher than 9.5%. Some more dark fruit in the flavor, more red wine, prune, some woody flavors. Ok...

Bottle->shaker. Dark drown with little head. Aroma is faint, has dark fruits and sweet malt. Taste has chocolate and malt, with a burnt finish. Interesting.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a ton of foamy tan head. Smells very fruity with raisin and prunes scents. Tastes fruity with a slight coffee aftertaste. Good beer.

Bottle. One of the best American Doppelbocks Iíve had. Very dark brown in color. Really, rather light but tasty in flavor. Nice slight nutty caramel with just a touch of bread. Nice head with some lace. really good beer.

Caramely brown with nice tan milkshake head. Somewhat meager nose of malt, milk chocolate, vanilla. Medium body beer. Sweet flavors of chocolate and toffee are almost instantly overpowered by bitterness. Very quick finish, slight bitterness as reminders that youíve had a beer at all. Ok beer not my top beer from Atwater.

I liked this beer. Itís my first venture in high gravity beers (still not quite sure what that means) and I enjoyed it. But I like dark malty beers - so keep that in mind.
