mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Arts and Crafts Beer Parlor, NYC tap ($7): Pours light brown with a beige head. Aroma is fruity, malty, hint of hops, and a good bit of sugar. Taste is subdued doppelbock. It remains very drinkable despite the high ABV and the maltiness. Medium bodied I would say. It is a little bit sweet, but not too much so. The hops provide a nice finish. I enjoyed it, even though I was drinking along in a bar full of suits. Not bad.

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 (4030) - 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.
