3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque dark ruby mahogany, thin head cover, no lace. Taste is a clear toasted malt with a light nuttiness that enters in the palate. A little bittering balances things nicely in the finish. This is a good doppelbock because nothing is overstated. All is well-presented, tasty, and if there is a weakness, it would be the high abv for the strength of the drink. Recommended.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Strong characteristic maltiness (toast, caramel); some tootsie roll-like chocolate. Appearance: Very dark, murky cola red/brown with a bubbly, thin tan head. Flavor: Quite a bit more chocolate character than the aroma; very warming and hearty with some residual booze. Toast tends toward roastiness; caramel more an afterthought. Palate: Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Real nice Doppelbock; could compete with my go to for the style (Weihestephaner Korbinian) if it weren’t twice the price.

Bomber. Pours near black with a small head that dissipates into a small ring of lace. Aromas of rasin, other dark fruit, booze, caramel, and light plum. Smooth drinking with dark fruit, light chocolate, bread, and a full finish. Nice brew and glad to have tried.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted sweet malty aroma. Medium to heavy body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown with red hints small head. Sweet roasted malts aromas with some dark fruit. Big malt flavor with some toffee and coffee notes. Standard issue for the style but still tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bomber - pours dark brown with tan head and minimal lacing. Nose is coffee and caramel. Flavor adds licorice and old man candy/fruit. Sweet, but kept in check by the roasty bitterness. Impressive body and flavors. Here’s my advice: make this an Eisbock! PLEASE!!!!
