3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a dark caramel color, perhaps light brown, with a white head. A bit on the light side for a doppelbock.
S: The nose is quite tart with plenty of sour cherries and cola. A hint of chocolate and miscellaneous fruit notes, and undertones of toffee and malt.
T: Plenty of sourness on the flavor as well. A fair bit of vinegar, but it works nicely with the cherries, cola, toffee, and caramel. This is sort of reminiscent of an oud bruin.
M: The body is medium with a solid carbonation.
D: Some other beer drinkers were not huge fans, but I liked the way this one turned out. Of course, I like almost anything that’s sour.

courtesy of fiulijn - pours a cloudy copper-orange beer with a moderate head retention; fairly hoppy with notes of bretts, grapefruit, esters and some caramel in the background; full-bodied, sticky and with a solid carbonation; decently bitter and spicy, slightly sourish; long lasting fruity estery finish with some warming alcohol notes - a doppelbock ? ok ...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Barely legible notes from RBSG 2010 - I think this was poured on the bus to Dark Horse? Brown brew with a bit of rust colour and a white cap. It’s 9AM - let’s drink! Aromas that are sour and funky and unique - wood, cherry I think and caramel similar to Coke. Wha? Hot, sour burn and big yeasty flavour, leaf, sour red apple, apricot, dirt, hop heat. Quite bitter considering. This is very sour and very nice. Loses out when a bit warmer.. not sure how that happened with the endless amount of beer available.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a deep copper brown color with a small whitish ring. The aroma was soft acidic sour/tart with some fruitiness. The flavor was more like a sour brown with tart cherries, acidic, some malt sweetness. Strange and interesting at the same time. Not like any other dopplebocks I’ve had. Although here it is not listed as a dopplebock. The 10% is well hidden.
