COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This limited-edition winter brew will make its debut in October, but this winter celebration ale is worth the wait. Malted barley and chocolate tones define the traditional style, while the robust aroma and long, mellow finish will make this the perfect companion for your holiday adventures.

Jrwhitney6 (365) - - 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

Idiosynkrasie (4805) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear chestnut colour with late awakening, average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Earthy, nuttily, dark malty aroma with a touch of treacle and liquorice. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, notes of treacle, a nuttily touch, some liquorice, dry hoppy overtones with cardboard touch; chewy mouthfeel. Slightly cautious, if not anaemic for a DOPPELbock.
