3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a thin amber, with a tint of sandalwood. Aroma is nice and full of molasses. Head is thin, but lace clings to the glass. Interesting flavor. Hints of raisin, nut, and caramel. A molasses finish is prominent. Palate is thick and coating. Good beer.

Malty aroma with lots of nuts and some caramel. Flavor was mostly malt, with some caramel and a bit of alcohol on the finish. Very little carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark brown colour, with some ruby; it defied my best efforts to generate any sort of head. Interesting aroma; caramel, malts, chocolate & port. Very chewy and full bodied, somewhat of an oily element to the mouthfeel. Flavours are subdued versions of the aroma. Bit of a lifeless feel to this, I don’t think this is a good bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. Light brown with an amber hue. Nice malty aroma with just a slight hint of caramel. Creamy, malty flavor. A very decent beer. I picked this up at my favorite beer store on a whim but was very suprised by the overall taste. I’d definately do it again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Crystal clear, copper ale with almost no head. Malty, nutty aroma with notes of maple syrup and tawny port and vanilla. Whisper of grapefruit. Sweet and sticky flavor. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Molasses. Finishes sweet, but fairly crisp... and clean at the wee end. A very pleasant surprise.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark ruby body with a thin head. The rich aroma is caramel and some chocolate. There is also a hint of green beans. The taste is light caramel and iced tea. Finishes with some vanilla and notes of very light coffee. The mouthfeel is chewy with a nice sticky character. This is a nice dopplebock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The smoothness of this brew belies its healthy abv. It poured a light brown with slight reddish highlights and a film for a head. The aroma is of sweet caramel and a trace of alcohol. The mouthfeel is both smooth and chewy, nicely coplementing the caramel amlt flavor. The finish is sticky and warm with alcohol. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Poured a medium sized ivory head that was mostly lasting, fine-small sized bubbles, transparent, carbonated, sparse lacing, and a red hue. Aroma was malty, caramel and alcohol. Sweet, malty, caramel, and a vinuous flavor. Mouthfeel was smooth. Medium body. If you like this beer style, give this one a try.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5L, snifter. Lightly hazy brown-amber hue with a small, eggshell, foamy head. Molasses, pecan (with shell), toffee, brown sugar, whole grains, and earthy hops. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. There’s a healthy dose of nuttiness in the end. Medium body, creamy, but close to watery, texture, moderate carbonation. The bottom line is: the sweetness is muddled and without direction in the flavor.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown, clear. Sweet malty finish. A bit thin for a Doppelbock. Toffee and nuts dominate the flavour. An average beer.
