4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong, malty aroma has an earthy overtone and firm hints of cloves and caramel. Pours a clear warm sepia with a fizzy and none too persistent tan head. Rich flavor fills the mouth with malty, earthy and nutty notes plus hints of chocolate, caramel and cloves. Texture has good body, but fizz leaves something to be desired. This, however, is the beer’s only weak spot. Overall, an arresting doppelbock.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, auburn colored body, and a very small head were typical for the style. The aroma was difficult to discern due to its faintness. The smells I could detect were cherry, and some raisins. The taste was a bit more complex than the nose, with some semi-sweet chocolate, brown sugar, dates, and red grapes. There was a drying finish that I was not anticipating. The body felt about right for the style. Not bad.
