2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had decent hopes for this one, but came away disappointed. This is nothing more than a hearty bock. Sweet malt, caramel malt, thin... goes down like a Genesee bock... just a bit cleaner.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle poured the color of caramel cola or weak coffee, with small bubbles and no head. The smell was of faintly sweet malts and dark bread. Tasted of malt with dark fruits like plum or cherry. The palate was medium heavy, balanced between watery and oily. The aftertaste had a peppery spiciness and a faint taste of grass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours decent with a amber, brown color that passes some light through it, a mild off white ring of head, and mild lacing on the glass. The smell is decent with a raisin and bourbon blend that comes through nicely. The beer tastes decent with raisin, plum, mild bourbon taste that blends with the malts well. The mouthfeel is average as the beer was carbonated okay and the mouth was some what watery. Overall, it was an average dopplebock but not worth the price of admission at 6.75 in my opinion.
