Bottle from Appellation Wines - Cheers Ash! Essentially a malt-bomb. Pale for the style, clear copper pour. Aromas are just toffee malt, sweet on the taste, sweet on the finish, a bit sticky. OK.

Brown with a tan head. Great malty aroma. Big malt flavors with just a bit of dark fruit. Seems boozy for only being 6.7%. This is very well crafted, although should perhaps be marketed as a standard bock.

13 oct 2013, bottle. Light brown, clear, some bubbles. Nose is bready yeast and faint nail polish and cherries. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Bready malt, sweet, some alcohol. This is a really good doppelbock.

Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours clear copper with a slight beige/tan head. Aroma of light stone fruits and caramel. Med body. Flavor is roasty malt with some light fruit. It has a hop profile reminiscent of Morland’s Tanner’s Jack. Tho the malt is way roastier. Cute label. Nice flavor.

12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Amber Brown pour with thin light tan head. Aroma is candy brown sugar, cocoa, bread. Tastes are same with toffee, floral, mineral. Liked it better than that description would indicate. Everything is in its place and not too sweet - which is my bogey.
