Pours a pretty red. Sweetness from molasses permeates the aroma and taste. Odd aftertaste.

Decent. Pours clear mahogany without head or lacing. Some light coffee and dark chocolate. Light caramel aroma as well. Some nice pungence in finish that showcases the roast a little more. Tap at Churchkey.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (dated 2/10/14) poured into a tulip-style goblet. Pours a nice clear amber color with half a finger of off-white head that fades quickly. Aromas of caramel, sweet malt, sweet dark fruit. Tasting notes of sweet dark fruit including plums and figs, caramel, sweet malt, light booze. Medium carbonation, sticky and slightly thin mouthfeel. Medium-light body with a dry finish. I donít drink a lot of doppelbocks but this is pretty nice!

On tap at Barcade. Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, browned apples and raisin. Pours red brown with not much of a head or film. Taste is sticky sugar, some dark fruits and a weird red apple peel finish. Wasnít super impressed with this one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013 vintage bottle thanks to Queenholly. (Nearly a year old) Amber/ brown in color with fast vanishing head. Aroma is burnt sugar, caramel and a light yeast presence. This is a very straight forward Doppelbock. Flavor of is malt dominate with toffee, raisin, brown sugar/ molasses type note with the light yeast showing near the finish. The body is a tad bit thin but for the style itís still a solid offering.
