Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a hazy brown with a gold hue and a minimal gray head that dissipated completely. Aroma was full of sweet dark grains with a bit of bread and toffee. Flavor was a bit darker with some chocolate and a hint of toffee in the finish.

Beer poors Dark with a strong tan head. Aroma is of raisin and fig with a nice roasted character. Beer flavor is slightly sweet with a medium bitterness. Palate is not overwhelming, but quite drinkable. Overall beer is great, look forward to picking up another bottle if I see it.

Bottle from brewpub purchased 15 months ago. I’m not a lager fan, but this brew was pretty nice. Banana and vanilla blend for a nice combo. Not overly malty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good doppelbock, lots of spice, a tad sweet. It pours a very nice dark caramel color with a dissipating beige head. The nose is sweet and malty with a lot of fruit notes and some spice. There’s a lot of malt in the beer, as there should be. The feel could be a bit lusher, but it’s still quite good. The flavors are caramel, mineral, cardamom, lemon, pepper, some butteriness and a hint of cinnamon. It’s just a bit out of balance with sweetness, but it’s not by a lot.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. An unclear dark amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of phenol, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, phenol, caramel, and a bit of alcohol, leading to a dry phenolic finish. Hmm - I’ve had a lot of better beers from Full Sail. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
