Draft - Dark malts and a bit syrupy. Cloudy amber with a thin white head. Dark fruit esters and a bit of booze. Lots of fruit peel and caramelized sugars. Odd and there is a slight astringency, but the oddness makes it uniquely interesting.

On tap at Jack’s. Can’t believe I had never rated this one. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma is fairly malty with some strong caramel and biscuit notes as well as a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is similar. The big malt notes stand out, but they are accompanied by a bit of dark fruit, orange and grapes. I also get a bit of alcohol, but the alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Rich deep amber with a copper hue. Lasting thin tan head that’s pretty dense. Strong malty aroma but not sweet. Strong malty taste but well balanced by the hops. Smooth, strong, full. Good.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 Aroma of malts. Pours a dark amber with mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is malt forward - slightly sweet. Malts, hints of nuts and dark fruit. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I like it better than the first time I tried it. This Doppelbock was not as robust as some others I like from this style.

Brown and malty, not much head, only as much hops as required for it to be beer, sweet and drinkable but a little too filling to have more than a few at a time. Brown sugar but still a bit dry. A nice compliment to pretty much any bar food you'll run across.

Gingerman. My favorite from Live Oak. Big crunchy head hints of wheat or rice. Rich with dates and sasparilla notes. Caramel coated biscuits with a pleasant finish, a fantastic attempt and easier than Ayinger.

Gingerman, Dallas. Loads of grape aroma and flavor, especially in the flavor. Tasty brew that I’d order again but could only manage to drink one of. Just too malty sweet for my tastes but another good brew from Live Oak.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
clear, dark amber with a thin head. Dark caramel malt and raisen aroma with a hint of DMS. Big malt flavor with caramel. Has a bit of astringency and sourness. Perhaps a little thin in body for the style. Nice rendition but I liked previous years better.

Probably my favorite of their’s so far, though I did not check my previous ratings. Very full bodied with, as stated before, nice malty chewiness. In fact excellent malting on their part.
