3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head of fine bubbles. Light smoked and sweet malt aroma with some licorice and dates. Color is a very dark ruddy brown. Lots of sweet malts in the aroma with a hint of tartness. Prunes and dates along with a strong malt backbone. Hard to really pick out individual flavors in this one as everything is masked with the thick syrupy malts. Mild alcohol presence . Finishes slick and oily. An ok dopplebock but rather one dimensional.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber from Crossroads. Poured a muddy dark brown with an average sized foamy beige head, sort of ugly. Aroma is nice, chocolate, fruity, slight hint of sour chocolate, wet nut shells, bread dough, brown bread and a hint of sweetness and some alcohol. Fuller bodied with average to stronger carbonstion and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of bad chocolate, some nuts, bread dough, touch of dark fruit, wet wood, alcohol. Not bad, this brewery isn’t doing anything mind blowing but most offerings have been very decent.

Long dry wood and rye finish. Medium body. Ok.

Very nice brew. Pours caramel brown with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is sweet malts with a hint of orange and honey. Silky smooth on palate, with a sweet honey malt finish. ABV was undetected, was a big hit at neighborhood party!
