3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear ruby lager with a small, fizzy, beige head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel, maple syrup and chocolate malt. The flavor is medium sweet, but hopped adequately to eliminate any chance of the malts becoming cloying. Maple and plum. Full-bodied and almost fatty with lively carbonation. Finishes fairly clean. Thanks to headbanger for shipping the bottle to me!

Pours with a largish, light brown head covering a clear dark brown body. Aroma of rotten fruits, vanilla and tabacco. Some splotchy lacing. Tastes of something nutty, soil, and some light porter-dry coffee notes. Fizzy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Duane. This is my last beer from Duane, and they have all been very good. This one pours a deep, vibrant ruby color with a medium, creamy white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, plum, and prunes. Tastes very malty, with the aforementioned dark fruits and a slight, tart cherry finish. Delicious. Not super dense or complex like many doppelbocks, but very good nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another solid offering from Leinenkugel. They are probably my overall favorite large-scale USA brewery, especially since they always seem to be on sale for $5/6-pack. This was not quite as good as the Creamy Dark but still good. Deep reddish-brown color with a short-lived head. Roasted coffee flavor but a little on the light side considering the color. I will definitely get this one again.

I gotta admit that the name of this beer does not sound all that appetizing. This has remarkable drinkability and a great chocolate malt finish. Very smooth and balanced. I’d have to say I’m surprised Leinie’s makes this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured a deep reddish-amber with a rather short-lived beige head. Aroma picked up some roasty caramel and toffee, but there was an unpleasant aire of Nutrisweet that carried through to the flavor. Caramel and a small dose of floral bitterness were also found in the flavor. Medium-bodied at most, and I got nothing memorable from the palate (good or bad). Not one to seek out, but several steps up from most of their portfolio.

bottle, black pour, nose of malts and sugar, this is way too sweet for me, some coffee and burnt chocolate with a decent body to it but just too sweet
