3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nearly solid brown to black color under a thick tan head. Smell shows chocolate roast malt, and after it’s 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 it’s carried off pretty nicely.

Kind of like Yards Brawler for you philly guys. But it is 8% and just as easy to drink. Watch out with this one!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle.Black with a small head. Quite a lot of body but not as much flavour as you would expect. Quite pleasant at first but soon sunk into blandness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Fresh & Easy: Aroma is mild with a faint aroma toast malt, nothing much. Appeared a dark tinting of brown liquid with a tiny formation of foam. The flavor is bland with minimal sweet notes of malt. Slight finish taste of perfume. Cheap brown ale that was rather awful.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Deep brown-black body. Not much of a head...nothing after a minute or two. Very smooth. It kind of has that thin bodied character that makes me think extract, Pretty decent really, just has a neutered, lifeless quality to it that I don’t enjoy. I’m admittedly pretty biased against MBC. Sugary. OK flavor..but I’d never buy it again because it is really just alcoholic sugar water.
