ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Appearance: Very clear, bright mahogany-hued body with a smallish, off-white head. Smell: Distinct scent of melted Brachís caramel squares amongst the toasted malts and meager wafts of fruit and alcohol. Taste: Toasted malts smothered in plenty of sweet, toothsome caramel. Minor, zesty rye grain hint. Splash of DeKuyper Buttershots. Light golden raisin and apple stem fruitiness. Spicy, earthy hops with a gentle, though steadfast bitterness. Finishes warming and surprisingly dry, considering how sweet it was upfront. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Decidedly sticky mouthfeel. Drinkability: CIHB is brash and straight-forward with its delivery of sweetness, its plump mouthfeel, and overall alcohol, especially when compared to its traditional German counterparts, though I still found it to be enjoyable.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2009
Draught, Brother Tuckerís
Bright red, slight haze. Light, thin foam. Fresh, fruity (peach) aroma with light caramel. Sweet front, fairly boozy middle with lots of peach, and some plum/pear esters. The finish is very rich, cut only by alcohol.

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Color is a bright amber with very good carbonation and a nice tight head. Aroma is sweet, a bit roasted with alcohol tones in the back. Taste is rich, sweet and smooth. Starting with a bold medium body it goes down smooth with a rich feel. Finish comes in sweet with a raisin like flavor, a hint of vanilla, some hops and just a faint bitterness. After taste has a big alcohol feel as all the rich flavors slowly fade. After the first few sips, as you sit back you get a warming feeling deep inside. Overall I love it, great brew, its rich and flavorful yet very drinkable and the 10% ABV keeps you happy.

Ratman197 (10192) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish amber with a small diminishing amber head. Aromas of burnt carmel, dark fruit, toffee and light brown sugar. Palate was medium to full bodied with a lightly syrupy finish. Flavors of burnt carmel, brown sugar and dark fruit with a smooth lingering sweet malty finish.

bconley (352) - Fern Park, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2009
draft at Ravenous Pig. This is kinda like cough medicine. Very thick. Bitter fruit tastes. Very bready taste, along with sweet maltiness. Didnít like this one too much.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Draught @ Brother Tuckers. Deep garnet red with lots of lacing. Mild aromas include cherries. Also earthy with some woodiness. Soft low carbonation. Fruitiness integrates really well with the rich malts. Billed as a hoppy barleywine at the time, which is more what itís like, not like a DB. Itís simple, smooth and I like it.

notalush (4992) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Pours a clear dark amber, with a soapy, lasting lace - aroma of chocolate, raisin, fig, caramel - the flavor is caramel sweet, with some spicy hops and peppery alcohol heat - somewhat creamy mouthfeel - some raisin and cherry - a bit of sherryish character - finishes with some whiskey-like notes - fairly easy drinking for its strength - one of the better high grav brews from this brewer.

Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2009
Enjoyed on-tap at Brother Tuckerís, Pompano Beach. Beautiful white lace on chocolate colour. Chocolate malt, rich taste. Like a good Old Ale style.Tasty stuff.Way Above average mouthfeel. Satisfying finish.

Butters (3846) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Sampled thanks to sixfootsix. Pours a clear amber brown with small ring of khaki head. Nose of alcohol and raisins. Definitely íhotí smelling. But the alcohol is just flavorful, not hot, with a nice peatiness to it. A little average as far as dopplebocks go. Awesome label art though.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2009
On tap at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a dark ruby red color, with thin white lacing and a wispy head. Citrus nose, some creamy vanilla, slight chocolate, very distant roast. Flavor has sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, vanilla, and a decent bitter finish. Smooth, medium-bodied, balanced, and tasty.
