BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010

500 mL bottle from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA, rated 4/28/10. Pours a slightly hazy dark bronze color with a thin, frothy, anemic head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of raisins and toffee. The taste is raisins and caramel. Medium bodied. Not a terribly good beer.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Pours very dark murky amber with a creamy light tan head. Aroma of burnt toffee malts, dark fruit, biscuit,some hop citrus. Taste is very dark and roasty with lots of bready malt, good sweet flavor and then a burnt bitterness that is of medium length. Slick texture, very soft carbonation.

zeke626 (422) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2010

brokensail (10735) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2010 A: The pour is a murky dark amber color with plenty of caramel color going on. The head is almost non-existent, a small group of tan bubbles form on top. S: There’s an incredibly rich sweetness to the nose. Lots of caramel, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Also some hints of chocolate and vanilla, adding to the sweetness. Notes of dark fruits such as cherries, raisins, and plums. T: The flavor is not quite as sweet as you would expect from the aroma. It’s also sort of watery. There’s a bit more detectable roast and toast than offered up in the nose. Still, mostly caramel, brown sugar, and hints of chocolate. M: The body is also mildly watery with a pretty low level of carbonation, which doesn’t seem appropriate. D: Too much water flavor and the mouthfeel was a real let down. Not sure what’s going on with this beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2010
Bottle, pours a hazy bruin body with an off white head. Sweet and grainy,. light straw, appleish tones, caramel malts. Mildly sweet a light toffee note and a a mild hay note to finish. Not crazy about this one.

popery (1391) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
Reddish brown liquid with a creamy head. Good lacing. Sweet, doughy and a bit spicy. It’s what I want form a doppelbock but not a ton more. Not quite enough bite for my liking but otherwise good. It’s sweetly bready but maybe a tad too sweet. Very nearly cloying. It’s not quite sticky or bad, but it could use better hopping to mitigate the big malt flavors. It’s a doppelbock, but even among this heavy style, the sweetness of this beer gets to be a bit much over time.

willblake (2647) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2010
20100403 500ml bottle, sampled. Hazy medium brown with quick khaki head. Aroma is bready-sweet and yeasty, some salt water notes, toffee, damp forest. Tobacco and tannery flavors offset some aged sherry and caramel sweetness, mild earth. Coating with light carbonation. Much better than the other one, but nothing to write home about.

2.6
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Frank (2814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Red brown with an off-white head that leaves little rings of lace. The nose here is sweet. Aroma is sweet w/ a bit of breadiness to it. Taste is raisin and plum, caramelly w/ a slight twinge of sourness. Medium bodied w/ low carbonation suits the style. Slightly sticky sweetness lingers in the finish. Not the best example of the style.
