COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique doppelbock packs a punch of apple flavor. The tart crispness of the apples is balanced with just enough malt sweetness to make this big beer dangerously smooth. Prepare yourself... You are about to be engulfed by the APPLEANCHE!

A good apple flavored beer. Nice and festive for the time. Fuller body than most hard ciders ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The bomber says malt beverage brewed with apples. Meh. This smelled and looked good, and that was about the end of it. I’m not getting dopplebock anywhere. I’m getting a metallic aftertaste. I’m not impressed at all.

These guys are way too obsessed with doppelbocks. This one is good, nice cider character, helles bock underneath.

Bomber pours a hazy golden/orange with an almost non-existent white head and no lacing. Aroma is full of tart apples with light spices and some butterscotch. Taste us bitter - mostly tart apples. Body is medium with lively carbonation and a short bitter finish, with a somewhat odd malty aftertaste. I wish this was more like a doppelbock than hard apple cider. Could use some more complexity.

On tap at Dexters, pours a clear amber with no head, the aroma is of straight apples with nothing else, almost cider like, the flavor is much of the same, mouthfeel is smooth, just ok.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Bomber. Poured medium orange with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma picked up apple meat, caramel, and a little honey.. apple skins and light peppery spice around. The flavor found sweet and tart apples throughout.. a little honey and biscuity malt supported.. peppery alcohol and tart apple skins on the finish. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation on the palate.. too sharp at times.. ok overall.

Aroma is caramel apples and strong butterscotch/toffee notes. The flavor is caramel apples, dryish malts, fruit, butterscotch/toffee and a tart finish. Decent but the butterscotch/toffee was slightly off-putting.

Bottle. Pours clear, light apple juice body, fairly effervescent. Medium fluffy, creamy white head, lasting with good lace. Aroma is mildly tart apple, sweet caramel malt backing - caramel apple? Medium to light body. Sweet, tart, somewhat sharp alcohol. A little crisp, some creaminess. Flavor has apples, caramel, alcohol. Almost like apple moonshine sort of - alcohol content very apparent. The beer improves a bit as the palate adjusts. Would like more complexity.

Sample at Craftsman. Clear dark amber, 1/4 inch white head. Green apple aroma, a little chemical. Slightly slick on the mouthfeel, a little more apple, caramel, diacetyl in a big way as it warms. Huh.

On tap at GTMW 2013...last sample of the day! - Ours clear amber with a soapy white head. Nose has lots of apple smell, kind of like a malty cider. Taste has lots of cider character, light bread, no spice, and an apple finish. Not boozy or warm. Slick and very little carbonation. Interesting.
