This smooth rich dark southern German dobblebock is an Indian Wells Brewing Co. favorite. This 10.8% beer is powerful, but VERY easy to drink! This beer is not for the timid. A few of them and youíll feel like youíve had a frontal lobotomy the next day. Consume with caution!

ClubGonzo (4278) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep brown near-black body with a small off-white head. Nose is caramel, licorice, chocolate, toffee and hints of bread crust, red fruits and mild leather. Taste is chocolate, bready malts, alcohol, caramel, toast and hints of licorice, toffee and nuts. Medium body and carbonation. Very big, roast and alcoholic in its composition, yet the body - despite being a lager beer - seems a bit too thin in comparison to the extremely high ABV. Pretty nice, without being overtly convincing.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a fizzy, thin, totally unretained, ivory head, over, a clear brown (SRM 20) body.....nose is light cereal, minimal fruits, no hops.....taste is slightly sweet, barest hints of dried fruits, minimal hops.....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol heat present, carbonation adds fizz. This is a remarkably simple example of the style with only the barest hints of what it should have in aroma and flavor. If this bottle were not abused, and I canít know its history, then the recipe needs a boat load of rework. BJCP 6/2/9/3/5

"at 10.8 i still had hope for this one after 6 crappy beers, but it sucked as well. iím actually surprised at the decent scores itís received. looks great, but for lack of head, like most of em. this had a nice malt backbone on top of what wound up as a drainpour beer. i really hope this isnít the best they can do. this brewery sucks! where the hell are the high threeí3 coming from? not from what i drank

PorterPounder (5755) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Las Vegas, NV - Total Wine - Summerlin - 12 oz bottle. Dark reddish brown pour with a medium thick off-white head. Aroma of chocolate and brown sugar. Flavor has some molasses, a touch of brown sugar and some date-like fruitiness. Decently thick mouthfeel. Much better than my only other experience with this brewer - the Mojave Red.

troyc (2585) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2014
[Bottle] Deep garnet color with a decent looking white head. Aroma is of sticky caramel malts and distinct alcohol. Sweet caramel, burnt toast, molasses and dark fruits in the taste. Distinct harsh alcohol notes are expected given the high ABV and thin mouthfeel. Didnít do much for me. Tasting notes from 2012.

Wittales (660) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Appearance was clear black with huge rocky beige lasting 3 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are raisin, fig, sweet Munich, pale, chocolate malts. The alcohol is well hidden. Taste are sweet chocolate, cocoa, toasty malts. Deep fruits are slight fig, date, raisin with no alcohol. Palate was silky smooth overcarbonated with medium body, then metallic slightly dryish lasting finish. Iíve had this before, this taste like a bad bottle hopefully.

martinrumsam (556) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2013
Deep brown with hint of red Small beige head with some lacing. Muted aroma some caramel and malt. Taste is quite metallic and semi sweet. Very low carbonation. Amazed to see the abv. Not much hint of that anywhere. Quite watery on the palate. Goes down way to easy for an ale this strong. On tap at Stovepipe Wells Death Valley

A - pours dark ruby mahogany with low off white head. S - smell is weak simple lightly smokey very grainy. Dog food, metallic, watered down molasses. M - super watery, light body. Amazing for a 10% beer. Flat and easy drinking. T - water, light dog food, grains, metallic something fierce like other Indian wells brews. O - so light and drinkable. I can't believe it's 10% 2.5
