2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. very boring.... a pretty light doppelbock. some aroma, but mostly a bit of sweet malts and a bit nutty. pours a weird copper tone with next to zero head. overall a beer that isn’t worth much, except to have on a random night when you don’t want to break into your good stuff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, twist off cap. Clear brown, underwhelming nose of honey and malts. Not too much in terms of flavor. Body might be lighter than Narragansett Bock, but this is supposed to be a double? Maybe Bock Light. Mild dry finish. Not bad, shows potential, just watered and boring.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: Poured a light brown color with a very thin head. Very light carbonation. Aroma isnt that appealing. Flavor to match wont be sad to see these go and not come back. First in BOM...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - from BOTM club. Amber - brown color. Pretty disappointed in this one. Not much flavor. Some maltines and roastiness, a bit of hops. Slight metallic taste. Surely they could have found a better German Doppelbock.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Not in the same league as an Einbecker for example. Pours with a copper color. Starts out nice but then becomes a bit too boozy. has some metallic notes which are distracting. lacks malt profile and also is too thin bodied. Drinkable but not very good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
BOM: Everything one would expect in a dopplebock (crystal brown body, brown sugar with some nuttiness, decent carbonation) but nothing is noteworthy. I’m not upset my membership expired!!!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz. bottle from beer club. Nice head, which didn’t live long. From there, looks like leather, smells like leather, and even kind of tastes like leather. I got three bottles from the club, so I’ll try another in case I got a bad one, and try to give the other away. Maybe it’ll be to someone else’s taste. It’s not to mine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer club selection. Poured a clear brown with an enormous head that held for a while, then left a nice film throughout the drink. Aromas of honey and grapes, and clearly some maltiness. Complex flavors, including the honey and grapes that were in the nose, plus some breads and biscuits, offset by a hoppy finish that made this a really enjoyable drink. Medium to full bodied, and more carbonation than I expected from the style. Went down awful easily for a 7.5%.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
With the name of a dopplebock I expected something more. Sweet taste but average in my opinion. Head held up only for a short while. Fruit taste that seems to stand out. this was a BOM club selction
