A rather straightforward, inoffensive doppelbock, a bit caramel malty sweetness, not too much fruit presence, drinkable but otherwise not noteworthy. On tap WOB Wellington.

CanIHave4Beers (3230) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Pours a deep mahogany with a tight medium sized off white head that leaves a decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is rich with lots of toffee & caramel without coming off as overly sugary... It’s got some light chocolate and is lightly boozy. It’s a big malty inviting aroma... not always something I’m after but it’s hard for me not to be drawn in by this one.

The flavor is as expected, very malty. It’s a sweet beer but doesn’t quite get into the cloying territory. It’s got an alcohol spiciness and just enough herbal hop character to bring some balance to it. It’s got a nice chocolate on toffee thing happening and a little bit of cooked fruit.

Maybe it was the right beer at the right time, but I really dig this... and I went in with very low expectations.

Homer321 (1876) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Thin, watery. Could be because I just drank an eisbock, but this is bland. No malt backbone - could have told me it was a Munich Dunkel.

I think that I had this one but no sure. Anyway sampled draft @ Biermuseum. Deep amber, creamy white head. Nose is slightly metallic with lots of sweetness mixed in as well, candy, caramel & very sweet malty. Taste is lightly metallic but not in an overt, bothersome way, almost more mineral-like, sweet sticky malts, sweet herbs, lager yeast / feel, caramel, faint hops in the back. Creamy & substantial mouthfeel, satisfactory brew for sure.

Tap? at Biermuseum. 26/8/13. Aroma is meaty malt, sweet caramel nutty malt. Amber colour with a loose off white head. Flavour is nutty malt, some alcohol presence, light toast. Boozy finish. Fullish body. Some metal. Tasty malty beer.
