2014/09/29 - Pours a clear, dark mahogany colour with a fizzy, khaki head that quickly reduces to a film. No lacing. Aroma is molasses, biscuit, apple, dark fruits and caramel. Taste is lots of dark fruits (plumbs, figs and raisins, sweet toffee, roasted malt, mild molasses,brown sugar and a touch of sweet booze. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly oily with smooth carbonation and a sweet, mildly boozy finish. Rather enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1900) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a Unibroue snifter. Bottled 9 Feb. 2012. {from June 2012 notes} Pours a clear, dark mahogany, with a short-lived, one-finger, off-white head. The aroma is a fruity mix of medium toasted malts and a dash of hops. There is much more fruit in the mouth than in the nose, with suggestions of prunes, figs and cooked raisins. A subtle hint of butterscotch toffee in the flavor. Some hints of brandy in both the nose and the taste. In fact, the nose is a bit boozy although the high ABV is fairly well hidden in the mouth. Rather sweet, particularly mid-taste but even in the lingering, fruity aftertaste. M: medium body; low carbonation that I felt should be a tad higher. O: A very drinkable imperial dopplebock that is a bit sweeter and fruitier than usual.

Nice. Clear brown pour with light reddish tint and thin tan head. Aroma is primarily caramel and a little paper. Taste is sweet caramel and molasses with a nice little (very little) hop bite at the end. Enjoyable.try it with a creamy brie.

From a bottle. A little on the sweet side for my taste, but much keeping it refreshing, but tasty.

A solid Dopplebock that rivals the Duck Rabbit version. A very tasty beer that gets better with the finish.

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.
