2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another hazed ruddy brown liquid. Taller light tan head. Herbal hops with some grains and mild sweet toasted malt. Mildly sweet start with some more grains. Some sharpness in the middle and into the finish. An acetic, nearly sour quality. Touch meaty. Not real clean.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours with a small thin tan head. Aroma is mainly molasses with some black patent and roasted barley. Taste is similar, but chocolate malt stands out in a weird unpleasant combo. Very slight carbonation which is not to its advantage. Kind of over heavy. Not to easy drinking. Not a fav.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin light tan head of fine bubbles that does not last long. Nice strong malty aroma with some raisins, roasted grains, brown sugar and rye bread. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Rather lively mouthfeel with decent effervescence. Lots of sweet malts, roasted grains, burnt sugar and more raisin. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Noticable alcohol presence and warming. Lingering sickly sweet malts. A pretty good and representative dopplebock.

A really good doppelbock. Nice chocolate flavor with hints of cherry. Too bad I won’t keep any bottles in my fridge due to the questionable label.
