3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, no date found. Poured a deep amber color into a lager glass. About two fingers if beige head. A little cloudy. Nice lacing on the glass. Smell is earthy, malty, yeasty almost bread like. Not picking up any fruity aromas. Taste is smooth malty sweet with slight bitterness. The word silky comes to mind. Nutty, a little bready, definitely earthy, and yeast character. Some acidity, maybe a hint of raisin or date notes. Very clean on the palate, light to medium body. Carbonation is moderate. Very smooth, balanced, and drinkable even with the alcohol. Seems well hidden to me. Enjoyable.

Bomber poured into an odd tall, slim tulip style glass that promotes lots of foam. Unusually strong dopplebock, but a pretty tasty one. It is quite smooth and has a lot of well blended flavor, leaning toward the raisiny. Sweet and medium bodied, heavily malted with no reason to mention the noble hop, this is a good example of the more potent end of this traditional style.

Shared by czar, thanks! Pours a clear copper with a small beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of caramel, husky cereals and light alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet and carries on with the same caramel and cereals. Moderately bitter. Body is medium-full, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel sticky and syrupy. Pretty nice but not my style I guess...
