CanIHave4Beers (3193) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2014
We chugged somewhere between 2 and 6 kegs of this from Jakebra’s famous draught system, details get hazy but strong palates like mine remember everything about how she tastes mydude.

Pours a deep mahogany, hazy with a small head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is sweet, rich, & sort of earthy in a woodsy kind of way. It’s got some cherry & some molasses. It’s unmistakably Doppelbocky.

The flavor is rich and fruity with some dusty malt. It’s sweet but not as much so as the aroma had me thinking it would be but it sure has some of that dark caramel thing happening. It’s got some cherry, some woodiness, and some nice earthy hops.

I don’t know, it’s nice beer, maybe not my "thing" but it’s certainly enjoyable.

Aroma is caramel, toffee, malts and underlying mild fruit sweetness. The flavor is caramel, fruit, toffee and a mix of sweetness and mild tartness in the finish.
