3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from T-Joe’s. Pours nice enough, clear brown, no lacing. Aroma is very good, very approachable. Nice enough taste, but definitely middling for the style. Kind of the diet coke of dopplebocks. Good, but not hard to find better. See: Paulaner Salvator.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Hazed reddish burgundy brown color, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is quite floral with a hint of tangy furit and bready malt. falvor is clean, lightly peppery, toasty, not much int eh way fo caramel, slight fruity tartness, a clean and drinkable doppelbock that lacks malt depth and complexity.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Faint aroma of roasted caramel and malt. Deep amber color, with hint of deep red. Thin tan head. Sweet rich roasted caramel malt. Bready in flavor with hints of toffee. Finishes with a licorice like bitterness, somewhat unbalanced. Slick mouthfeel, finish is a bit off. Not the best.

Not really my style but very enjoyable in the fall and winter months. This one is malty and dark pouring with decent lacing and a good head.

12oz bottle -
A really nice beer, that for anywhere from .50 a bottle to $1.00 a bottle is a great buy. Toffee-like aroma, light brown sugar with a touch of vanilla and Coke. Flavor has a little more roasted malts that what the aroma may lead you to think about the beer, Tootsie Rolls also are found too. Medium sweetness helps this beer be quite enjoyable and really brings out flavors the different malts bring to the table. Very nice.

can’t beat it for the price, and this is among the best of their 6-pack line. As far as comparing it to the best of the style, it’s boring, but compared to similarly priced beers, it’s a steal."
