Dark orange/pink body, with no mentionable head. Aromas of lager malt, rather skunky, with a good dose of raspberry. Malty spicy and piney on the flavour, with raisins and a warm alcohol finish. Not my favourite style, but quite good when taken with Russian oysters!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 4-22-2011 at JK O’Donnell’s Irish Ale House, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a small beige head that quickly dissipates, reddish orange transparent body, no visible carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and a suggestion of dark fruits. The taste is moderately sweet, caramel malt and dark fruits. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is just a so-so doppelbock. The flavor fell short for the style which is disappointing as doppelbocks are one of my favorite beer styles.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear and ruby red in the light and brick otherwise. Fizzing off-white head that fades quickly to a half-coat. Aroma is sweet, lightly toasted malts and winter-spiced bread. Taste is much the same but sweet darkfruit notes are prevalent with the booze-soaked bready malts. Much caramel and toffee as well. Hops are hard to find, but there is a slight backend bitterness. Slick on the palate and a bit fizzy. A good dbock but a touch too sweet.

Dark red amber in colour with a medium fading light tan head. Aromas of sugar, pine malt and bread arises. A light fizzy note with slick light malt-velvety texture. Rather sweet with a notch of bitterness. Offers notes of brown sugar molasses medium-full bodied with a Lasting malt-sweet finish.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a reddish amber color. Clear. No haze or bottle sediment. No head to speak of. Very sweet malty cherry taste. Not enough carbonation to cut the sweetness. Overall it's a so so beer.
