Pours a dark golden brown color. Has a honey smell with a bitter malt taste. Would not buy again.

March 2nd, 2012 - Of all the beers Trader Joe’s could choose to put on its very limited shelf space, I am surprised it gives so little to beers who give so little to consumers. There are exceptions, of course. Here in San Diego, Trader Joe’s fields such celebrities as Unibroue, and some more local stuff. But the beers from Nero’s are neither local nor especially good. Is it because Italian, and someone can buy an Italian beer to go with their Italian wine for Italian night? Is the appeal of the long-necked bottle too quaint not to pass up? I’m uncertain, but every time I encourage myself to try one of these beers on the off chance that this time will be different, it never is. The label promises a “double dark malt ale” which hints at something deep, dark, viscous, and maybe even sweet. Not so in the least. Both nose and taste are pallid, weak and wan, with a light, restrained flavor that’s more like a slightly nutty light brown ale than anything else. The aftertaste has light grains and touches in the same weight class as a wheat beer, but without the figure for it.

italianjohn (2311) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Hazy deep golden pour with a thin off white creamy head and light sticky lacing ..... aroma of grainy malts, caramel malts and some earthy qualities ... taste is of caramel malts, toasted malts, grainy earthy hops and a little sweetness .... real simple brew and the abv is hidden real well

Bottle. Wheat and malt aroma, cloudy brown, white head, medium carbonation, long syrup finish, after taste is like mineral water. Pretty good but Italy has got better stuff.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2013
A sickly copper brew with a long lasting off white head. Sweet peaches and malt are up front in the smell. There is also abc gum and a little bit of old wood. This tastes like sweetened peaches covered in brandy. There is also some toffee in the finish. Notes of wood come through in each drink. A decent brew, but it’s an odd combination of sweet and dry.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium orange with a tall whitish head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and dark fruity notes with black pepper and detergenty accents.. more of the latter as it warmed up. The flavor found sweet caramel, nutty notes, and dark fruit at the core with tangy fruit skins and clovey/white peppery yeast around.. tasty, sweet finish. Medium-bodied with an ok flow through the palate.. decent drinker.

IrishBoy (3822) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 13, 2013
500ml bottle from Trader Joes Bakersfield. Nose is ripe bananas, sweet caramel, and a hint of molasses. Clear redwood brown with a medium, heavy lacing, beige head. Flavor is slightly sweet with moderate molasses. Actually a good dopplebock for 1.99.

obguthr (3756) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Banana and graham cracker nose, some plastic notes. Cloudy copper, thin head. Caramel dominated flavor with apple and berry accents. Not tart. A bit chemical. Light body, fizzy. Kind of cheap, but not awful.

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Slightly murky brown with tan head. Aroma is a bit like a dusty attic with some dark malt notes. Flavor of dried fruit and nuts. Would not have guessed this to be a dopplebock as it tastes much more like an English Old Ale. Ok but out of normal style guidelines.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Cool 50cl swing top bottle pours a deep ruby red amber-ish sort of color with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up raisin, spiced red apple wedges and some hazel nut like nuttiness. The taste is similar as it puts out a mix of raisins, cherries and spiced red apples as well as a bit of roasted malts and nuttiness. Interesting estery and also nearly astringent maltiness at times.
