3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle best by August 2016. Clear amber-copper with a short off-white head. Quiet aroma is basic caramelized malt and toasted grain with faint metallic / penny qualities. Full bodied, rich, sticky, malty, semi-sweet (well-suited for body), light to moderate bitterness. Lots of savory and chewy melanoidins, no major fermentation defects (barely a trace of alcohol and no plastic-y off-notes). Aroma has limited expression and in the mouth the character is more of that pancake and maple syrup maltiness (highly caramelized).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark orange beer, small and quickly vanishing head. Smell is a nice combination of light malt and grassy hops.
Medium bitterness, Grassy, herbal hops are the dominant aroma. Hint of hay. Full body, finish is rather abrupt.
Hoppy Doppelbock, enjoyable but nothing special.
