4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle -
This beer was no joke. My 2nd time with Mammoth and the first time I had their beer, the uniqueness of the beer still rngs in my memory banks (the IPA395). So this time, the beer was even better and while not as unique, it still kicked ass. I like to think the German’s know a thing or two about dopplebock’s. Apparently someone in Mammoth Lakes knows a think or two also.
The aroma is stuffed with caramelly-sweet malts, chocolate malt balls with just enough leather and raisins to be amazing. Just insanely decadent. As far as tasting, this dopplebock zero’s in on the malts and it buries any hops way down deep. I got zero hops in this. Just a lot of cranked up malts, toffee/Tootsie Rolls, rum-soaked raisins and coffee..all melding together. My BevMo is carrying this for $5.99 a bomber. That is a steal, and I’m going back to get plenty more.

9%...pretty big. this had all the qualities we were looking for...not to mention a thick fluffy head that never went away. Ever. i think it may still be there tomorrow. great malty sweet, but balanced with just the right amount of hops. great, doughy aroma and flavor. smooth as silk. very good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- pours a rich mahogany amber with a finger of egg shell white head with good lacing. S- rich lager with healthy caramel malts, rye, hay and dank mustiness. Earth, minerals and mild figs. M- smooth medium body with a sweet light palate. Okay carbonation. T- caramel malts are forward. Some other yeast, rye and molasses. Middle is raisins, and mineral water. Ending is efficient with a dry and caramel aftertaste. Some sour oak and grasses here too.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 8-21-2010 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This bottled beer has a small head, hazy reddish brown body, and no lacing. The aroma is clear cut caramel malt. The taste is moderately sweet, caramel malt and has a semi-dry finish. This beer is medium bodied. This beer lacks character and has no WOW factor to it. The flavor is bland which is very disappointing since this is one of my favorite beer styles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz. bomber from Mammoth by way of a good friend, Thanks! Pours a clear reddish brown with not much of a head. Mild roasted caramal nose. Very smooth and soft palate. Clean but submissive flavors of dark roasty malts. Sweetness is balanced back by the hops. Alcohol is well hidden. Very good, but not as rich as I would prefer. Yes I would have this again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of cascading foam light tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent copper brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The deep aroma was mild hop and caramel malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor was mildly acid sweet and malty. An OK brew just nothing special.

A clear dark brown colred beer, with a thick foamy dark beige head. The aroma of sweet caramel with cherrie and some dark malt. The taste of caramel, fruits with hints of chocolate. The aftertaste is sweet with notes of bitter.

Very cloudy brown beer, no real head. Malty nose with marmite yeast. Palate is slightly dry. Surprising sweet pear and apple with a little aniseed. Even malt with a trace of marmite. Very subtle chocolate. Finishes with a little more sweet fruit, this time orangey. Different!

Bottle. Dark amber pour with a small off white head. Sweet malts, toffee, some dark fruit, raisin, and nuts. Alcohol is well hidden. Not spectacular, but one of the better mammoth beers.
