3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Fenway location. Arrived a deep brown with garnet tinting that allowed no light to pass through with a thin-moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt which begins mild and increases a bit as the beer warms. The flavor is malt with a solid dose of caramel. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap. Salem. Pours a deep reddish brown without much of a head. Nose is malty and fruity. Flavor is a little thin for a doppelbock as well as mouthfeel. Slightly sweet with licorice in the finish, minimal bitterness I have had better from the Beer Works.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
While the haymarket was very aromatic, this had no aroma at all, none, whatsoever. I don’t even have to adjust the score in fact. Ruby brown color. Flavor is very strange, syrupy, overly ripe and alcoholic. Some caramel, toffee and plum, but mainly just husk and alcohol.

Powdered sugar aroma that’s subtle. Asparagus aftertaste. Garnet colored. Tastes foamy in the palate. Excellent clarity. Had at Canal St. Location.

tap @ canal. oily palate, as beaconstreet noted an asparagus aftertaste, creamy on the palate... almost like swallowing a sweet load.
