3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz Draught from brewpub. Appearance is dark brown color with light, dark beige head. Aroma is relatively weak with caramel and malted grains. Taste is dominated by the caramel, dark malted grains, and some spicy hops. Probably a bit too bitter for the style. Palate is full bodied, moderately smooth texture, average carbonation, semi-dry finish. It's an okay beer that's appropriate to the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Elevator Brewing Co, Columbus OH, March 2010. No ABV stated. The pick of the dozen Elevator beers I tried at this sitting (and Iím not usually a big Doppelbock fan). Very dark red/brown colour. Thin beige head. Excellent condition. Light chocolate aroma. Much more on the palate. Also roast coffee and lots of licorice. Had an almost Baltic Porter feel. Avoids the fat malt and soy sauce feel that I find in many Doppelbocks and donít enjoy too much. Not too sticky either. Most enjoyable and satisfying.

On tap at Elevator. Pours a dark brown color with dark coffee head and heavy lacing. Barbeque ash/sweet cola aroma and taste with a slightly warming alcohol presence in the after burn. Could do 2 or 3 in a sitting but Iíd rather not and drink something more interesting.
