3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Fat Headís Portland, pours an opaque dark red / burgundy with a small tan head. Aroma is intense, with notes of caramel, dark fruits and toasted nuts. Flavour is along the same lines, with strong dried dark fruits, caramel and brown sugar. A totally American doppelbock, but I like it all the same. Nice syrupy sweet beer without being cloying in any way.
