3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 Epic’s better offerings that I’ve had to date.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had a small glass at J Henry’s invoice. Or is dark brown caramel. That is green meat and white but the leasing is not very good. The taste is mostly of molasses and Dusty cereal with a little bit of booze and fig chocolates. The mouth has soft carbonation it a nice long sticky finish which really rounds off the beer .. Decent doppelganster! .. . . Dictated not read.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 from andersons. Red Amber hue with brown white head that dissipates quick. Nose is malty and sweet. Smooth and bready with some Caramel notes. Not too complex but belly warming. Hides alcohol amazingly well. Ok but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 ounce bottle shared. The beer is a clear brown color with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a strong wood character with a caramel sweetness backing things up. Very sweet beer overall, with that woody character being the driving factor. An interesting beer, I must say. I don’t believe it was aged in any sort of wood, but it definitely tastes and smells like it was. Bigger body and medium carbonation.

Bomber a gift from Furiousdman. Nose is vanilla caramels, citrus, and a hint of golden raisins. Clear amber with a medium lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, and a hint of toffee. Hoppier than most dopplebocks but extremely drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from HomeBrewStuff. Release #31. Dark brown, but clear body, light airy lasting head. Sweet, nutty aroma, taste adds some elements of semi-sweet chocolate, wood, peat, very earthy. More sweet than nutty, but fairly true to style, body could be a bit heavier.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Clear walnut brown and short ecru head. Insanely malty and "lagery" aroma, roasted nuts, hinting at grape and bubblegum. Rich, sweet, and chewy… flavors evoke breadcrust, mild coffee, and perhaps grilled meats. Herbal hop background. Full-bodied and luscious with just enough tingly carbonation. Amazing!
