4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark reddish mahogany with a huge head of light tan foam. Nose is full of malt and a whiff of molasses. Very creamy with a nice mouthfeel. The taste is rich and full of dark roasted malt, a hint of molasses, some bread notes with no bitterness. An excellent doppelbock- pairs well with deli sandwiches, nuts or pretzels.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark color, some off white head and minimal lace. Medium body, the alcohol, malt and yeast come out strong in the flavor. Some dark fruits and a sweetness I cannot name.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours deep cola, close to black. Aroma is dark fruit, raisin, and sweet. Taste is sweet and bitter at first, then there’s faint smoke, finish is sweet caramel/toffee. The palate is pretty light in body but, slick and slippery in feel at first but builds up to very rich. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lively black hue, opaque with a foamy tan head, fair retention, no lace. The nose is complex, spicy alcohol was noticeable as was sweet chocolate, licorice, and roasted malt. Rather powerful. Warm on the tongue with lovely intricate flavors that matches the aroma... plenty of licorice and roasted malts, the alcohol is noticeable as well. It is a very smooth drink, low carbonation, full-bodied. A hearty delight!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Full bodied, thick bock. Fruity, sweet, and bit dry in the back. A bit too fruity for me, I found it tough to stomach.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Got heaps of dark chocolate, a hint of spices. The hops are toned down in order to present a nice balanced maltiness. Fresh and exciting. Try this!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Only Cafe. Toronto, Ontario. Pours an opaque dark brown colour. It has a complex fruity aroma. Dried fruits, plum, and raisins are pronounced. The flavour matches up with the aroma but finishes hoppy. Medium carbonation and spotty lacing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Complex flavor profile. Lots of malt, coffee, licorice, mixed nuts, tobacco and traces of chocolate. Strange aftertaste with hints of olives. Decent feel though a bit oily.
