this beer is a sipper. strong aroma and a high alcohol taste makes this a worthy drinker. malts are rich and caramel with some mild banana. hits you hard at the end

its good for what it is, im just not into the sweetness of doppelbocks. heavy on the dark candied sugar and malty profile.

Perhaps this is inducement from my eyes, causing my mouth to imagine things, but I really got a yellow cake element, some distinct spiciness and fruit characteristic, really amazing stuff and a beer that I totally loved. Was actually quite surprised by the mediocre reviews here.

Vanilla cake batter flavor, but it is not as hard to drink. The alcohol presence is subtle and makes this beer quite enjoyable.

The aroma has what seems to be rubbing alcohol added to adjunct malt and no hops. The appearance is light amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical of the style. Overall an average beer.

Given to me by HopasaurusRex after a recent trip to the beer store. Thanks for the opportunity Todd!
Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly to form a cap. Smells of sweet malt the second I pop the twist off. I nudge my nose a bit closer and find lots of caramel, prunes, sweet fruity malts, and melanoiden. Taste is sweet with fruity malts and caramel. I pick up some brown sugar and cherries in there as well. Finish is a bit sweet with a bit of dryness to it. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky, carbonation is light to medium, body is medium. It smells a lot better than it tastes. I find this one to be a bit too sweet for its own good. If there were a little bit more burnt sugars or dark fruits in there to counter the sweetness this would be pretty damn good.

Draught at the Brewery (in a shitty plastic cup): Aroma of malt, light caramel, and light noble hops. Poured copper/amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, light noble hops, light honey, and slight rye. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, malt, light noble hop, light honey finish.
