Draft... This beer rocks!… Clear, dark crimson lager with a mid-sized, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Great retention. The plush aromatics consist of dates, black cherries, golden raisins, toasted malts, caramel and a hint of milk chocolate. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor leans toward the sweet side of balance, but doesn’t approach “cloying” at all - dates, dark raisins, black bread and medium-roast malts accompanied by a slight, mineral bitterness. Finishes mildly bitter with unsweetened cocoa, toasted tree nuts and buttery toffee. Vinous, world class lager!

Tap at Cigar City. Dark brown pour with a small creamy head. Caramel malt, fairly dense palate, maybe a hint of peat. Excellent.

You find things in the strangest places. Had a 6oz pour of this at Farmhouse Tap and Grill in Burlington. Mostly opaque deep mahogany brown with some cloudy white head. Nose of prunes, nuts, raisins, rum, malt, a little detritus. Flavor is malty, raisins, prunes, bread, rum, stale coffee, some dried apple slices, dried cherry. Full, sticky finish. Not a bad attempt.

On tap at CCB, poured a clear reddish brown color with aromas of toffee, rasins, light earth and some nuts. Flavors are the same, sweet toffee and some rasins, hid the abv very nicely as well.

I wanted to like this one but its just too sweet and syrupy for me. The flatter palate made it oily and sweet and kind of hard to drink. The classic doppelbock flavors were there... but it fell short in that I didnt really want to finish my glass.

Pours a translucent brown on tap with lots of carbonation, a thin tan head, and light lacing. Aroma is a malt bomb, caramel, toasted grain, barley. Taste is much more balanced, but still very malty, sweet out of the gate, with a bitter finish. Pretty decent, but not sure cigar city should do stuff like this.
