Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land.
Pours a deep mahogany with a nose of nutty chocolate, raisin, cocoa, and light bourbon. Flavor is hoppy chocolate and light roasted cocoa. Average tingly mouthfeel. Not too shabby.

dfinney23 (1573) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2012
On tap at Hay Merchant. Aroma is toasted malt and smoke. Taste is an excellent balance of sweet, bitter and savory notes -- about my only complaint is could actually be a little smokier!

(Growler thanks to TXJeep) very clear rich brown, little to no head. Nose of gingerbread, dark bread, light smoke that’s well done, and milk chocolate. Taste of smoked malt, medium dark chocolate, mild bitterness, wish it had a bit more to round out some of the smoke but it’s nice in general.

2/24/12. Growker thanks to TXJeep at RBWG 2012. Nice amber pour with a small tan head. Light smokey aroma, maybe a touch plasticky, with sweet caramel and meat. Similar flavor with smoke, a bit of roast, sweet caramels, and a touch of meat. Not too shabby.

beerandbeyond (656) - ISRAEL - FEB 22, 2012
5 oz. sampler from the tap of Houston’s Flying Saucer. Deep dark brown with small beige head. Pleasant malty aroma with hints of smoke and wood, burnt sugar and toasted bread. Rich flavors of sweet malt, caramel, some dark fruits and smoked meat, with minimal balancing bitterness. Full bodied and wholesome, long lingering finish and perfectly hiding the high ABV. Well crafted beer, and thats from a non Doppelbock fan. This new brewery has yet to fail me.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 Black, with a moderate sized light brown head and heavy lacing. Aroma of roast, chocolate, and light smoke. Taste is smoky and roasty with chocolate covered cherries; slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Medium-full bodied and really smooth. Another nice addition from karbach.
