Flavor, flavor, flavor. This doppelbock has it. Pours out to a very nice dark ruby color, with a creamy, light brown foamy head. The head looked good enough to eat. Nice alcohol kick on the finish with enough hops to trip the sweetness of the malt back to earth. A very impressive beer.

A nice dark ruby body with a small head. Big toffee, caramel aroma. The flavor is all caramel and toffee malts. Really nice. The only drawback is perhaps a bit too much hops in the finish. Overall quite nice however.

A wonderful big beer from one of Americas best brewers. Malty and full bodied and even a 9 month old sample seemed to be just comming into its own. Full deep copper color.

Great caramel malt flavor. This beer really packs a punch. Perfectly filling, smooth mouthfeel. A little too much bitterness in the finish as it warms, but overall a great beer, even for $13 a 6 pack.

What are the chances I’d find a Bells I hadn’t had in a SCI lot scene? Before the other night I though slim to none but once again this crazy trip called life proved me wrong. After such a long wait to try this one it was awesome.

Thick head, it looked like a scoop of french vanilla ice cream. Nice caramel malty flavor. This was the find of the day in the East Lansing String Cheese Parking Lot scene. Not as over powering of a malty taste as salvator
