3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours a medium-dark brown. Some head, tan in color, not much lacing. Nutty and sweet tasting, very little aroma. Very little warming as well; you think it’s sessionable but watch out! Would have liked a bit more aroma, but fairly tasty nonetheless.

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!

Very sweet. Not much more to say a bit of grain. Not very enjoyable except for a buzz.

Bottled. Poured dark, duh. All of your standard malts and breadiness but a hint of grainy. A decent db
