Nice! Sweet lil dopplebock! Thin on the palate, good pour, very minimal head retention. Sweetness present in the tounge as well as the alcohol. Very smooth and easy drinking, almost too easy for 8%abv. Well done.

Bottle. Pours a clear, see-through brown with no head. Aroma is weak. Taste if sweet dark fruits, caramel. Not bad, weak category.

Pours a reddish brown with a very thin tan head that is gone in the blink of an eye. Aroma is sweet. Honestly itís a pretty mild aroma. Hard to pick up any subtleties in it. Flavor is much more bold. Molasses, brown sugar, coke, french toast. Very sweet beer. Little to no bitterness. Palate is pleasant. Smooth and well carbonated. Overall this beer would be well suited to drink as a dessert after dinner. Too sweet and flavorful to session. Not to mention that is does pack a little bit of a punch at 8%

Red brown color, very syrupy look. No head, or almost none. Aroma is very sugary, with a molasses and cherry quality. Touch of cola. No hop to speak of. Just tiny hints of mint and bubblegum. Much complexity. The flavor is pure sugar: cherry cordial, toffee, molasses, caramel. There is a ginger-y burn on the back end, although it doesnít taste like ginger. Mild butterscotch; liqueur sweetness. A mild earthy balance keeps it from being too saccharine. Very smooth, buttery texture. If youíre in a malty mood, this one is a real winner. Iím not nutty about Bocks but this one is official.

Pours medium brown with orange hues, slight thin head, nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, doughy malt, caramel, molasses, dark fruit. Taste malty, dark fruit, fresh dough up front, then chocolate and alcohol, then mellows into caramel, molasses and more dark fruit, cherry, rasins, dates, slight spicy hop character balances it all. Mouthfeel aproaching full, moderate carbonation, alcohol warmth present sweet finish. Very well made beer, excellent example of style, good balance and complexity.

Pours a clear reddish brown. Maybe a slight aroma of molasses. Slight hop not on the taste with other flavors of malty caramel, molasses, nutty and a little sweet. Pretty good.

Clear copper pour with no head to speak of. Mostly caramel malt aroma but faint. Definitely got the sweet, creamy doppelbock flavor Iím accustomed to. Loses points for the lack of head, but definitely a tasty offering. If itís brewed for a Fat Tuesday release, I hope they donít offer this to the zoo down on Bourbon St. because it would make it more of a shit show than it already is. Good brew from one of my favorite brewers regardless.

12 oz bottle poured into an english tulip pint. Rich malt aromas start the beer off, particularly bread, and caramel. Thereís some doughy and citrus notes as well, and some hints of spice and a faint we cardboard or maybe a wood scent. After the initial pour, the aromas are mostly muted, although caramel is most prevalent. Initially a huge, soft, creamy brown-yellow head sits atop this beer, but it reduces to a thin, whispy, dishwater layer fairly quickly and leaves no lacing. The body is a brilliant amber-orange color. A medium-high malty sweetness is balanced by a light bitterness. The body is rich, medium full, with abundant carbonation that falls somewhere between soft and fizzy. Its an oily texture that goes down smooth. Nuts, figs, toffee, and a touch of pine come through on the mouth in addition to the molasses and citrus that came through on the nose. Thereís a faint dark chocolate taste too that shows up near the finish, but is soon supplanted by a bready & caramel finish with a light , but noticeable herbal spice (anise?) and a root beer finish. Itís rather refreshing, and mostly clean, although a mellow, mostly molasses with a touch of burnt toast, flavor swells in the aftertaste.
