Tap at Great Divide - clear light amber - nose is melanoidin, caramelized sugars, a light metallic/copper note - fairly creamy in the mouth - flavor is sweet burnt sugars, moderate esters, moderate malt richness - however, an undercurrent of DMS rides throughout - the finish washes it out with bitterness, spice and alcohol - lagers don’t seem to be their thing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer has a very malty aroma with notes of roasty caramel, dryer fruits and raisin. Beer is brilliantly clear with a deep mahogany color. Beer has a thin white head with nice carbonation. Beer has a medium sweetness that balances a very subdued hop bitterness. Flavor carries stone fruit flavors through. Palate is medium with a slight stickiness. Overall beer is very nice and I’d have it again. It’s always nice to find a good dopplebock

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep crimson color with a slick white-tan head. Smells like strawberry shortcake. Aroma is alcohol, fruity, bread, vanilla, sweet, toffee coconut (?). Really interesting. Taste is drier than expected, a little chalky, fruity, alcohol, solvent, a little bitter, wine-like. Thin lacing; nice smooth, creamy mouth feel. I would have liked this to taste more like it smelt (strawberry shortcake). But overall I was pleasantly surprised.
