This a very rich beer. In very limmited supply. Chuck brews one batch a year and it’s gone in less than a month. We make sure to stop in the brewery at least once each spring. Usually bring home a couple of growlers.

22 ounce bottle, dipped in blue wax. Pours a dark mahogany color with a medium white head. The aroma is rich sweet fruity malts. The flavor is great; chocolate, a deep toasted malt with loads of sugary sweetness, nutty, with sweet fruits akin to strawberries. Nice! A great Doppelbock.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2008
Bottle... Murky burnt orange ale with a small, frothy, khaki-colored head. Everlasting retention around the edges of the glass. Fruity, chocolaty aroma of cocoa, dark cherries, black currants, wood and earthy hops. Full-bodied and very creamy with medium carbonation. Almost perfectly balanced. Medium sweetness, adequate bitterness and moderate acidity. Barrel aged cherry cola. Lengthy, tangy, sweet, and then tongue-numbing finish. Kudos to StFun for providing this interesting and delicious bottle of beer!

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 11, 2008
Pours brown with a tan head. Smells vegetal with some spicy elements. Tastes fruity with some tartness.

pours a dark brown, with thin tan head. aroma has coffee, chocolate, and touch of sweetness. falvor not as sweet as aroma led me to believe, traces of roasted malt. medium bodied. not as sweet as i feared, and a good effort by the brewer.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle from BBB63. I need to start trading with this guy more often! The body is a brooding, dark rootbeer brown. A small, foamy, light tan head settles pretty quickly to a wispy film with a prominent rim. Sheets of sudsy lace rejoin the body very quickly, leaving nothing but clear glass behind. The aroma is rich and deeply malty. Caramel and nougat jump out of the glass, while chocolate rushes in from behind very quickly, completing the malt profile. Vanilla cream and coffee liquor add to the decadence, making this brew smell almost like a fresh slice of tiramisu. The flavor is nearly as impressive, as creamy chocolate, caramel and nougat again play fullback for more subtle flavors of vanilla and dark rum. This one is very dessert-like and satisfying. The medium body is neither sticky or cloying. In fact, it transitions nicely from round and smooth to a short, dry, fruity finish. Many will call this one too fumy or alcoholic, but I love what it has to offer. Excellent brew, and near the top of the genre.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Bottle from BBB63. Lightly vegetal aroma has very little going on. Dry, lactic flavor is a bit sludgy and dull, kind of like licking an old machete. Can’t say I’m too enthralled by this.

12oz bottle, courtesy of BBB63. Thanks, Mike! Dark cola color; minimal tan head. Chewy caramel and nougat in the aroma: roasted malts and a hint of smoke. Very chewy, medium-to-full mouthfeel: viscous caramel and nougat upfront, with a soft cola-infused carbonation lurking behind; excellent chewy malt presence, with the drinkability of chocolate milk. Medium, coffee and caramel finish.
