3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. It’s certainly not dry. The hop is just enough for some flavor and balance. It’s very nice.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Pours a fairly cloudy, dark brown appearance with a small, bubbly, cream-colored head. The nose reminds me of almost a nut brown with a toasty caramel malty, nutty, espresso, toffee smell. A touch roasty, a bit burnt, caramel malty, somewhat bitter, weird toffee flavor. This really doesn’t remind me of a doppelbock. Not all that bad but not that great either.
