22 oz bottle shared by theisti courtesy of alagnak. Color is clear but slick looking brown. Pours with a small head. Aroma is strong dry leafy wood. Its definitely lagered doppelbock but a bit too dry and not malty enough for my tastes. Some boozy-cherry character coming off the alcohol. Flavor is a bit sweeter with a woody and earthy flavor. Leaves that woody and dry German lager flavor. It is good but nothing special.

22 oz bottle courtesy of alagnak. Pour is mostly clear ruby mahogany with a 1/2 inch off white head that falls quickly. Aroma is soft, though sort of chemically cherry sweet - like a throat lozenge. Behind that some generic toasty malt. Taste is the cough syrup - cherry, medicinal, and some band aid behind that. Sort of weird and a little muddled. Palate is medium to light bodied, active carbonation and a dry mineral finish. Thanks Chris - nice to try this one.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Nose is quince paste, nutmeg, caramel, and candied lavender petals with a hint of grape Kool-aid. Deep brown color with some crimson hues, medium soapy head. Sweet chewy malts with steady bitterness to balance it out. Medium carbonation, rich silky mouth feel, medium to full body, finish is immediately malty, slightly spicy, then develops into a slow mild alcohol warming end (though the high alcohol level is almost impossible to detect until this last moment). Really well put together beer. Tons of flavor and balance, but in a very restrained and sophisticated way.
