Ruby red brown color with a med tan head. Full malty aromas dominate. Nice full malt flavor without being overly sweet. Alcohol is well hidden, an exceptional Doppel that has med carbonation and is very well made.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good deep dark red color with a thin amount of head. Flavor is a nicer smooth caramel malty taste, a little bit acidic, not like a serious bitterness, but a definite bite is there. Overall, this is a mighty fine brew, but I don't much care for the palate, as it could use a little bit more depth.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The only thing cool about this beer, IMO, is the bottle. Otherwise it's average at best all the way down the line.
Pours virtually without a head.
Scent is caramel malt, taste is about the same. Very little carbonation. Overall, it's just okay.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color, brown hue; poor head. Light, strange aroma, with some caramel. Some sweetness, a lot of charamel and a terrible lack of character (but not of strength).

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice beer! Pours bronze with a puffy tan head. Nose is sweet. Some brown sugar, malt and maybe even honey. The taste is also very sweet. More malt, brown sugar, caramel and molasses. Not as thick as I had hoped for but still very good. Finishes is slightly sweetened as well. Great beer for only a couple of dollars!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark brown. Foamy head. Nose is sweet with notes of honey and dust. Full bodied. Very lightly sticky. Low carbonation. Raisin sweetness dominates mostly, complimented by a light touch of tartness. Not bad but not exciting either.
