3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It had a great off-white head that lingered and laced all the way down the glass. The aroma was sweet, malty caramel and toffee. It tasted of toffee, caramel and chocolate. Not a heavy body, but great mouth feel and bold flavors. Great Job!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice, bold flavor. Aftertaste remindsme of the old Lowenbrau by Miller. Pretty good for an American doppelbock. Dark color with a nice head that hung around. Aroma was slightly like a fruit cake. Like it.
