2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Red tinted, burnt orange & copper body with good clarity. Foamy khaki head settles quickly on top. Aroma of intensely sweet caramel malt; heavy, stale caramel, borderline cloying with underlying traces of red apple, prune, licorice, earthy must, & toffee. Flavor is kind of stale, too. Super malty. CaraMunich malts up the ass. Heavy caramel, dusty toffee, mild earth, apple, hint of grape. Weird tartness. Grainy, old caramel & weird gummy finish. Lingering malt stickiness & clumpy yeast. Atwater, pumping out them gems as usual. Super messy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark caramel amber body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is slightly sweet with some caramel and slightly husky grain. The flavor is a bit thin and one dimensional, rather sweet with a slight dry huskiness on the finish. Not especially well lagered, it finishes a bit dry and dusty. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, about on par with what I’ve come to expect from this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Burnt amber pour. Aroma is caramel malts and bread. Flavor is jsut hitting hte spot for me right now. It has the body of a much lesser beer but a nice sweetness that has you coming back for more. Not a typical doppelbock but I have had comparitive brews but this is better.

So lagers. They’re a thing that people like. Personally I’ve never seen the allure, but I do respect a good lager/bock. This is a fairly good one. It drinks like a Boston lager. If you can imagine Boston lager with a little less hop and a who heap load of more malt flavor. This is like if you lagered a stout. It’s really good, definitely a winter beer. Too bad I missed having this in winter....

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer tastes very damn good and is 7.5 alc. It doesn’t have a very strong aroma, but I guess that doesn’t really matter much since I don’t buy beer for the smell. It has a cool label with the skyline of Detroit as seen from Windsor and Atwater is down there. No twist off cap it requires a real bottle opener which means it is serious.
