DrnkMcDermott (2902) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Pours a nearly solid brown to black color under a thick tan head. Smell shows chocolate roast malt, and after itís sat for a few minutes, some of the roastiness of a stout. Is that good or bad for a doppelbock. Not much alcohol on the palate, but I am starting to feel it after a few more drinks. Warm and creamy chocolate taste, a slight sour fringe around my tongue. Not a style that a lot of contract clients want to do, and itís carried off pretty nicely.

ronaldtheriot (1523) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Firemanís Brew Brunette has a thin, cream-colored head, a dark, reddish-brown appearance, some visible bubbles, and minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, roasted malt, and the flavor is of dark bakerís chocolate, sweet brown or black bread crust, and low-level hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Firemanís Brew Brunette finishes crisp, refreshing, and NOT boozy. RJT
