2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
on tap @ Pensacola Bay / FL --- Clear dark amber, foamy beige head, strings of lace. Taste is watery caramel malt moving to a big carbonation burst on the swallow, then mild hops into a short finish. Nothing wrong here, just not enough of everything. Kinda like a Beck’s Dark.

Rated from notes taken 28 Dec 2012 -- This growler sat in my parents fridge, sealed for 3 months before I could get my hands on it. It held up incredibly well. Translucent copper color malty scent. Great doppelbock flavors and finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pretty nice, although there’s minimal belgian or german features (my notes?). Surprising amount of sweet chocolate reminds me more of a mild brown ale.
