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 I’ve 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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 you’ve had a beer at all. Ok beer not my top beer from Atwater.

Pours like a stout. Flavors of dark fruits. It isnt really that amazing of a doppelbock.

I liked this beer. It’s 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sweet fruity prune and molasses aroma. Dark murky brown with a small tan head. Roasty malt, molasses, prune, and very light bitter hop flavor. Medium body, low carbonation. Pretty darn tasty.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty caramely brown with nice tan milkshake head. Somewhat meager nose of malt, milk chocolate, vanilla. Medium body with good carbonation. Sweet flavors of chocolate and toffee are almost instantly overpowered by bitterness. Very quick finish with only carbonation and slight bitterness as reminders that you’ve had a beer at all. Alcohol is very well masked. OK.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A deep dark brown bock with a thick lacing brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with molasses, dark plums, light cherry acidity, very nice. In mouth, a smooth grassy and acidic bock with ground cherries, light peaty dak malt, light lactic acids, nice. Bottle about 3 years old.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark hue with a tan head that dissipates to a small ring with minimal lace. Light malt aroma. Malt taste, sweet, high carbonation, medium body. High alcohol hides well, this is light for a high gravity beer. Dry bread like finish. Not Atwater’s best effort.

Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Awesome dark roast malt aroma and flavor. Nice mix of hops this was a excellent brew.
