3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Might be an old bottle. Pours muddy brown with medium sized tan head. Aromas of wheat and some raisin/fig though nothing stands out too much. Taste is medium bodied, full flavored bock with a good roasty malt going on. Did not pick up on the molasses (as noted), but caramel notes come through.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, fruit and toffee. Flavor was quite sweet with molasses, toffee, sweet caramel, dark fruit, and some brown sugar.

Looks light brown. Little tan head
Taste is sort of.... Boozy malty caramel.a little light
Palate is light. Maybe medium. Decently smooth.
Overall sort of meh. It’s not bad but nothing really stands out. Just malty. And a little boozy.

Bottle from Sean - thanks! Clear amber pour with a tan head. Raisin spiced dough and sweet malt in the aroma. Clean and balanced dough and spots of sugar with molasses and softer malt in the taste. Slight hop bitterness in the finish. Clean, lightly coating mouth feel. Really great take on the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Eccentric Café. The pour is a clear amberish ruby with no head to be found. The aroma is big on the malt and caramel. It's rather bland beyond that. I'm not really getting the molasses or any other good scents. The flavor is just as disappointing. The sweetness of the caramel comes through but there isn't the defining sweet maltiness there in a good dopplebock. The mouth feel is thin and watery, with minimal carbonation and a decently lingering aftertaste.

A solid dopplebock beer! Lots of caramel all the way through, slight fruit and hint of citrus and slightly boozy finish. I’d definitely enjoy it again.

Bottle. This is bottle caramel liquor. This is pure decadence in a bottle. Smooth and velvety.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish brown pour with khaki head. Caramel and wood in the nose. Taste is fairly sweet with lots of caramel malts dominating. Vanilla, toffee, rum. Slightly sticky but still drinkable with mild carbonation. Good stuff.

Pours light ruby-tinged mahogany into a stem glass. Tan head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Dark caramel and pit fruit aromas. Thick with sweet caramel and dark pit fruit and almost a little overripe banana front to back and into the warming finish. Yummy.

On draft. Ruby red color with almost no head. Taste is caramel. Thick after taste with sweetness. Not bad.
