draft at the brewery. pours a dark brown with bright ruby edges and a dense, fizzy brown head. rich loamy nose with balsamic overtones...oh, that hcb balsamic note. creamy medium body, soft carb. mid palate is mostly balsamic, then a toasty, earthy finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Taster - Hood Canal Brewery - Kingston, WA
Aroma – This gave off yet more fruity aroma. This was light with hops as it should be.
Appearance – Dark Amber in color, small head and clear.
Flavor – This was a light Dopplebock. The flavor where very light with malt. The hops where so light hard to taste. Felt watery once again.
Palate – Decent Mouthfeel, A watery texture with a semi dry finish.
Overall – The beer was just not happening It felt watery and like it was missing the strong malt flavors a good Dopple would have had. I felt like it was a incomplete fermentation. That my humble opinion.
