UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Thanks to slikwily for this trade! Reddish brown. Rotten aple arom, but in a good way (really!). Some apples flavors come through in the flavor, as well. Malty sweet up front. a little alcohol in the finish. Very full bodied.

Caramel and berry nose. Cloudy brown, creamy head. Sweet caramel flavor with slightly artificial tasting berries. Surprisingly light body, hides strength well.

deep garnet color with small head and low carbonation. crisp, caramel, and alcoholic aroma. super-malty and very smooth body, finishes with a hint of bitterness and there's an alcoholic aftertaste. i enjoyed this one.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Appearance: bright, rich, reddish color, a tint not too far from auburn, but clings closer to a rubyish hue, as well/ Head is disappointingly small, brief, but stands as a toasted tan while it lasts. Aroma: big, fat, maltiness, earthy, and fruity, plenty of plum and grape in here, with a deep, woody feel, as well as distincitve toffee and caramel tones. Taste: floods the mouth with sweet, rich malty delights. Very slim hop content, just a barest buzz, but the flavor is so consumed by this warm, toasty, tastiness, there's not a thing that seems to be amiss. Body is full, to say the least, finish is long, slowly diminishing, sweet and substantial. The yeast is what really trumps this one, for it adds so much dimension to the mouthfeel. A damned fine doppelbock, one of my favorites, for sure.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Mahogany color, small head, great lacing. The aroma is thick and sweet caramel malt. Taste is malt, caramel with some fruitiness. Full bodied with a lingering malty finish.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2004
2004 bottle. Hazy dark reddish brown, tan head around the edge. Very smooth going down with a round mouthfeel. Gets somewhat fruity sweet, in a good way.

From batch 6148. It is a hazy brownish-orange, haze caused by the yeast in suspension. The aroma is quite intense, I say this because I really didn't need to get close to the beer to smell the strong malt aroma. As I took a closer sniff, a bit of a yeast smell mixes with the malty aroma initially noticed. It has a big, thick feel in the month. There are noticeable raisin tones and some carmel. No real noticeable hop flavor.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Bottled, batch 6148. Very cloudy deep amber with a medium diminishing off white head. Intense, sweet aroma of caramel, red apple, plum, orange and raisin. Medium thick oily body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Sticky sweet flavor of cherry, red apple, caramel, molasses, and ginger with hints of cookie dough and citrus. Slightly astringent. Heavy, sweet and chewy, it would be hard to drink more than one. Very good.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Bottled. Batch number 6148, released in 2004. Tremendously murky brown color. A very muddy looking brew, I half expect silt to settle to the bottom of the glass if I let it sit alone for a while. Head is very thin and light brown. Very oily, leaving a thin film on the sides of the glass. Delicious caramel malt aroma has hints of orange citrus, sugared dates and raisins. A very Christmas-candy evoking aroma. Sticky malt flavor with gingerbread, caramel, and a touch of alcohol. Slightly acidic in the middle. Finish is lightly bitter, with slightly grapefruit-ish qualities. Excellent sweet-to-bitter balance. Full, thick body. A meal in a bottle, and quite delicious.

2003 Bottle. Very deep brown. Smells awesome. Quite malty, definite dried fruit, burnt carmel. Awesome so far. Thin tan head with some lacing. Quite a mild flavor for Bells. Definite mild beginning but then the flavor really hits you all at once. Quite warming. Sweet, bitter, burnt marshmallow. Bitter grapefruit peel flavor in the finish. Very nice beer and I must say one of Bells better beers.
