sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2013
22 oz bottle, "Release #5 9.1% ABV." Dark garnet pour; frothy tan head builds as the beer is poured; dissipates into absolutely zero covering; no lacing. Aroma sweet, nutty malt, bread, deep-but-not-quite-dark fruit. Flavor has a fruit ester thing going on, pretty sweet, toast; clear alcohol in the exhale but not boozy. Medium body, heavy but smooth carbonation and quite sticky. Less than mind-blowing but well above average and one of Epicís better offerings that Iíve had to date.

BelgianBeerGal (3137) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2014
SLC bottle. Pours a cola-like dark brown with a foamy, bubbly off white head. Nice earthy malt aroma with a faint hint of baking chocolate. Flavor has a little spice, a little booze and some bready thickness. Nice.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark brown with a small, creamy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing.

drjay44 (2606) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2014
651 ml. bottle. Release #22. 8.7 ABV per the label. Pours a thin well retained ivory head, over a clear light brown (SRM 18) body....nose is light, plum, raisin, cola notes, light toasted malts, minimal hops, balance to the malts.....taste is cereal malts to start, then light plum, raisin tones, sweet throughout, finishing almost dry....mouth feel, light of medium body, sticky, light alcohol warmth, finishing with minimal acid, and low carbonation. This is a simple and uncomplicated Dopplebock which is sweet without balancing complexity. It is cereal dominated and is quite bread like in its construction. It is not crisp, but is quite filling. The recipe needs work. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Sample at the tap room in Denver. Dark copper color with a medium beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and dark fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, raisins and earthy hops. The finish is grainy malt and dark fruits. Decent overall.

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bomber from the Utah State store on Harris in Salt Lake City. Pours dark copper with very little head. Rich caramel/treacle aroma. Not a lot of hop smell. Med + body. Flavor is rich caramel, with a little treacle. Itís certainly not dry. The hop is just enough for some flavor and balance. Itís very nice.

Panzuriel (1295) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2014
This beer is a reddish dark brown pour with a thin head of white bubbles. Nose is faint but a bit of malt backed by red fruit. Taste is a muted malt with a bit of stone fruit on the finish. the body is lively. An interesting beer.

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2014
Clear dark brown amber pour with good ring of tan head. Big bready awesomely sweet raisinbread. Ever so slight alcohol warmth, but extremely well hidden. Drinks deceptively smooth. One of the best american attempts at the style that ive had.
