Tap at brewery. Clearish ruby copper, with no lasting head. Aroma is of bread dough and sticky caramel, with some lager dustiness and smoked malt. Flavor was much the same--old world smoked maltiness, lagery doughiness, and a subtle caramel undertone. Didn’t really work for me.

Brown color. Small beige bubbles on the surface. Dark sugar nose with some toasted grains. Big sweet beer with lots of caramel, some apple sweetness, and some toasted bread. Nice malty double bock.

ContemplateBeer (1553) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Aroma of chocolate, waffle cone, molasses and brown sugar. Appearance is brown with light tan head. Flavor matches the nose, but with some ham smoke. Palate is lightly fizzy and bubbly. Good, but nothing too wow for me.

maxwelldeux (3750) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2012
Not much head to this one, but it has a great nose. Pours a dark amber with some deep red tones. A great smokiness to it with just a hint of sweetness.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Draft at the Taco Mac in Peachtree City. The beer had a solid body and was a flavorful sweet caramel. Just a slight smokiness to the beer.

Tmoney99 (10947) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle. Poured hazy dark brown with an average light brown frothy head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy smoke malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet roasted smoke flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Complex good beer.

brew3crew (166) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Tmoney99. Mix of smokiness and malt on the nose. Smoke up front that finishes well with the caramel body. One of the better smoked beets I have had, but that isn’t saying all that much

jcwattsrugger (11175) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2012
on tap-pours copper with a light tan head. Aroma is smokey/peat/sweet medium malt. Taste is chocolate/smokey/peat/sweet medium malt, some earthy/spice hops, hint of medium fruit.

rollinsr (384) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - FEB 14, 2012
This beer is awesome. Pours a nice ruby/amber color with a bit of tan head. Aroma is sweet and rich dark fruit flavors (fig and prune mainly) with some caramel as well. Flavor is sweet and slightly smoky. There is also a sort of oaky and nutty flavor that underlies some of the sweet fruit flavors. Sits very well on the palate with some lingering caramel nuttiness that imparts a slightly sticky feel.

Chudwick (2174) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 650ml bottle - pours very dark red with nice beige head and some lacing. Nose is powerful with candy, smoke, caramel hops and alcohol. Aroma is barley/rye, roasted chocolate and coffee. Taste is very smoky and very sweet. Heavy body. dry finish. I can find a good doppelbock in here, but the barley/rye and smoke just ruin it. drain pour.
