3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear copper hue with a thin head that lasted no more than fifteen seconds. Aroma is moderately pleasant with caramel up front with some fig, raisin and hint of wood. Flavor is disappointing though still has a lot of substance, I just expect a little more from a dopplebock. A solid caramel flavor is followd by raisin and a sllight herbal woodsiness. Palate is sweet though watery and flat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Swing-top. Sweet dark malt with caramel, toffee, and grape. Clear dark brown pour, no head. Taste is sweet and caramelly with brown sugar, toast, and light alcohol burn. Suprisingly light. Finish is dry. A tasty but non-exceptional Doppelbock that still fills a role. Thanks, joss!

Abolutely love the aroma of this brew, the sweetness really comes out and is heavy in the flavor too. No lasting head but the flavor makes up for that small flaw.. can’t find much objectionable about this, except that its too easily drank ;)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Dark amber with a dense but diminishing beige head. Sweet and malty aroma with toffee and hops. The flavor is maybe a bit on the sweet side, lightly roasted and malty with some alcohol and hops. It feels lightly sticky on the palate. The finish starts sweet, but turns bitter. Ok beer, but it is not as balanced as I could wish for. (060422)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a ruby red with a small white head. Aroma is hard to detect with some notes of caramel. Flavor is of tons of raisions with some toffee, candy sugar and brown sugar. A pretty good beer and by far the tastiest from this brewer.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From the way I sampled it (completely flat) this beer was tarnished obviously by the results of bad bottling. This is my second experience with this brewery and both times, in swing top bottles, their beers have poured like water. Great background flavors exist, but its hard to see past the dead, vineous mouthfeel. For this doppelbock, the background is rich and fruity with raisins and caramelly malts. Still, its fullest representation was destroyed by the flatness caused by poor bottling.

Swing top 0.5 L bottle. Pours a crystal, clean mahagony with no head at all; glass smooth top. Aroma is malt (meal, cereal), brown sugar, caramel, nuts and yeast (sweet dark bread). Nutty, caramel sweet malt flavor, medium acidity follows, finish is dry, slight metal taste. Medium bodied and smooth, clean palate.
