3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small head that quickly fades. Pretty nice aroma of caramel, cherries, raisins, and bread. Drinks really smooth. Easy to drink and a bit boozy at the same time. Lots of caramel and fruit. Finish is crisp and smooth, cherry taste lingers. Medium body, a little syrupy. Very enjoyable doppelbock.

Pours a ruby red with a small head that quickly dissipates. Taste is alcohol, molasses and raisins/fruit. Pretty boozy but I keep going back for more. I have a love/hate relationship with this beer.

12 oz bottle pours a clear copper brown with lots of rising bubbles, small off-white head. Aroma is full of carmel malts and bread, with some fruit (cherries, raisins, dates). Body is medium to full with just the right carbonation for the style. Taste is sweet with a boozy, slightly chemical aftertaste. A very good doppelbock anyway. I’d love to find this one on tap somewhere.

The aroma is rather non-descript with a hint of caramel malt. The appearance is amber with a small head that fades to nothing. The taste is very smooth with lots of sweet, bread like malt and a touch of fruity yeast. The palate is smooth. Overall a good beer.

I realize this is a pretty decent doppelbock, but the problems I have with the style (overly sweet, chemically caramel flavor) is in this beer as well. I can appreciate the palate and its rich syrupy character. Josh brought this one back for me from Madison.

Three tries. On tap draft, out of the tank at the brewery, and bottled. Loses a lot in the translation to bottle, IMO. Draft and from the tank - outstanding. Reddish/gold color, a little thick and heavy but good for a cool fall day. Definite toasted malt, grainy, caramel/toffee. Seemed to me it lost the caramel/toffee notes. Capital brews outside Madison,but tankers to Stephen’s Point for bottling, and the warehouse was really warm - thinkin’ that isn’t good.

Deep amber color. Aroma is sugary and malt. Taste is sort of fruity with a good malt background. Some alcohol burn that is very intriguing. Sticky mouth feel. This is a very good beer. A true autumn beverage.
