3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2016 2011 cork bottle reviewed in 2011. Pours a deep chesnut topped by a finger or so of light beige head showing average retention and some faint lacing. The nose is dark ripe fruit, molasses, banana, cookie dough or sweet dark banana bread. The same breadiness come through the taste with sweet chocolate, molasses and bananas. The hops don’t get much room as the malts dominate the palate all the way through, but the Hellertau shows up at the end. Medium finish, quite round on the tongue, and a slight bitterness. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours black with a quickly disappearing brown head that leaves no lacing. Aroma of caramel and hay. Medium to heavy sweet, average carbo, oily texture, medium to full body, flavors of brown sugar, chocolate and dark roasted malts leading to a brief sweet syrupy finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque chestnut /ruby color with a medium tan head. Aroma has notes of fig and prune...some brown sugar and mild booziness. Flavor follows suit but opens up some more with earthy/leathery notes...some underlying chocolate is peeking through. Mouthfeel is full and silky with an earthy/roasty dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4oz on tap at Liberty’s, for $3.50. Mostly clear red brown color, thin ring of khaki head, dots and bits of lace. Up front, dark fruit, raisin, chocolate, big nuttiness, and a touch of licorice. Kind of sweet, but an impressively potent aroma. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of chewy, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Good, full feel. Love the chocolate and mild raisin in the aftertaste. Bigger sweet taste, but not cloying. Mildly spicy. Mild bitter. Solid, tasty, impressive but sweeter doppelbock.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bière orangée coiffée d’une mousse quelque peu fugace. Nez puissant de mélasse, de fruits confits et de sucre d’orge. En bouche, c’est tout aussi puissant et complexe : sucre, fruits rouges, cassis, prune. Explosion de saveurs. Excellente.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy deep amber colour with mild red highlights. Big frothy beige head that lasts long with some foamy lace. Lots of raisins and plums in the aromas. Eventually, yeast come out with some spices and mild hops. Sweet flavours with the dark fruits and hints of chocolate. Caramel blended with the light grassy hops. Good brew, but a little too much for such a big bottle. The sweetness does not help.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #1063 - April 23, 2014 - Bottle from Coop. Rich blackbrown pour with a creamy tan head that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is roast malts, hint of chocolate and weak coffee, mild nuttiness (almond). Mild carbonation, medium-heavy alcohol warmth, little yeasty whiff as well. Palate is more malt character, nutty, chocolatey. Velvety texture that is almost dream-like.
