Bready yeast on this complex brew. Plenty of malt and fruit on the taste and palate to bring this around.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. Crimson amber pour with a foamy head. Seems mild on the aroma but there is really good bread, dark fruit, and caramel on the taste. Solid brew.

Harriet One Year Anniversary Party, January 27, 2012, Blue Nile Restaurant. Dark brown and low carbonation. Red meat, caramel, and sugar. It has a rich and heavy palate. This is a very good doppelbock, maybe the best out of any Minnesota brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured on tap is dark brownish red with off white head, aroma brings notes of slight raisin, dark fruits in there with very rich toffee, a slight mineral note with some grainy notes as well. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, toffee, some dark fruits going into a slightly bitter earth, finishing fairly sweet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler to glass. Aroma was chock full of malty goodness. Notes of caramel and some toastiness. Awesome dark amber pour with medium off white head. I was very impressed at how clean the beer looked. Medium bodied and has a nice sweet finish. I’m not a big Dopplebock fan, but this is pretty awesome. I’ve had it a few times and will definitely pick up some more.

Sampled at Winterfest 2012. Pour was dark amber red brown with a off white soapy head that fades. Aroma was malty little fruit and coffee. Taste was all of the above with the coffee really coming out in this brew. Palate was medium and slick with a dry finish. Decent brew, which I would really like to try again.
