3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Pours a clear red color with a very thin off-white head that does retain throughout consumption. Aroma is full of assorted dried fruits, with cherries, prunes, and raisins rising above everything else. The cherry flavor veers towards maraschino territory with further warming along with some snap pea. Weird. Could be some caramel and a bit of musty lager yeast, but not much besides that. The flavor follows suit with the aroma, but itís a bit more dialed back, with the cherry again being the feature flavor, followed by some prune and raisin. Caramel and brown sugar make an appearance here, and the flavors intensify the more this warms. Starts to taste a bit like Dr. Pepper. Faint hint of graham cracker on the finish. This drinks incredibly well for a 9% beer, and the alcohol is never noticeable. Overall not a bad beer.

Slightly hazy light brown color with a thin creamy head. sweet malty aroma with a yeasty tang. Flavor of sweet molasses, dark fruit and yeast. Full bodied, syrupy texture with very little carbonation and a nice malty finish. This is one of those hearty beers that really satisfies you on a winter night.

2nd generation. This one has a new brew added to it Jacked Maibock. Dark amber, white head that leaves quick. Smells like a string malty brew. Tastes like a thick dobblebock, hints of rum, syrup, loads of malt and dark fruit. Has a nice thick syrup feel at first but finishes clean and crisp.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper gold with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is caramel malt and honey. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and brown sugar with sweet finish. Easy to drink, a very good doppelbock from Capital.
