Jrwhitney6 (308) - - NOV 29, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Beer of month club selection. Pours amber color without much of a head. Nose was pure malt...nothing special. However, the taste was very sweet - caramel, some nuttiness, and a touch of malt. Not usually a fan of this style, but I thought this was pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It’s sweet with a caramel flavour. Medium body. Well balanced bitter sweet finish. I actually quite like this style. I should dig more.

Andy_ (683) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Mahogany colored clear beer with off-white big head leaving lacing. Aroma and flavor have earth, wood, herbs and dark fruits with sweet loafy and cakey malts. Palate is quite full with moderate carbonation and slight stinging of bitterness. Finishes with medium smooth bitterness, with sweet malty aftertaste. This doppelbock is a bit too sweet but nice.
