A traditionally styled Doublebock with rich structure, bold flavors and silky smooth finish. Handcrafted with a heavy dose of toasted chocolate malts to create a refined microbrew of uncompromised quality.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Dark brown, tan head, no lace. Sweet brown sugar malts, nearing syrupy proportions. Sugary sweet but lacking complexity and hearty malt structure.

Pour on tap, dark brownish red pour with slightly tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some slight vanilla, hints of nuts into a bit of spice, yeast, touch of grain. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, red fruits into a bit of nuts, slight earth, bread, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2014
12oz bottle stating 8% abv pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a semi loose one minute long thin mocha head. The aroma offers up a flash of metal at first and then it slides into dark roasted malts, scorched toffee sweetness and then a faint earthy chocolate note. The taste has a pleasing mix of dark roasted malts, chocolate and a thin ribbon of cherry like fruity esters that really imparts little sweetness. It gets a little more dark roasted coffee like toward the finish. Decent enough but a little roasty for the stated style.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a mahogany body and a large tan head. Aroma of tobacco, toffee, caramel, coffee, alcohol, soot, and candy corn. Fudge, corn syrup. Taste is sweet, tobacco, ash, molasses, candy corn. Lively bubbles, some alcohol, pretty slick. Not horrible, but not great. The best product brewed at Indian Well’s facility...ever.

solidfunk (7697) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Some roast and way too much caramel. Far too syrupy for my liking. Pours dark brown with ok head. Light sweet and mash finish. Bottle.

Ernest (7346) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (scorched caramel, burnt grain, molasses), with notes of brown/turbinado sugar, date/raisin, light note of shoe polish. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Similar quality as the Blonde (I see now they named their three beers as if they’re women...that in addition to the company name makes it loud and clear that fireMEN are MEN’S MEN, *grunt* *grunt* *grunt*). Almost nothing in the nose but sugars, and that carries through in the mouth, where there’s very little to balance. Just seems like a strong brown ale. A clumsy beginner brew.
