bytemesis (3321) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle thanks to Nolen! Pours clear reddish black with a small creamy tan head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is dark sugars, biscuit, molasses. Flavor follows, bread with lots of dark sugars and a bit of a hoppy bite. Medium sweet and fairly bitter, with a lingering bittersweet finish. Pumpernickel breads, burned caramel. Medium body, creamy, perhaps a bit acidic. Medium carbonation. Some heat from the ABV. Pretty decent.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - FEB 3, 2014
12oz bottle. Served chilled in a tulip glass and let come up in temperature. Aromas and flavors of maple syrup, dark honey, brown sugar, caramel, dark bread and molasses. Smooth, sweet and rich palate, with creamy carbonation and medium finish. Enjoyable. Good example of a domestic Dobbelbock. I want more! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

HighlanderOne (1016) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Poured from bottle. I smell vanilla and pancake syrup. Mahogany with thin tan head. I taste vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, alcohol and prunes. Quite sweet but highly drinkable. Creamy feel. Well done. Hope the rest of the sample pack is as impressive.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle; poured a really dark caramel color with a khaki colored head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, bread, and some earth. A nice sweet component. Really smooth and good flavor. A good dose of dark fruit and breadiness, balanced by some caramel and sweetness. Quite good

jrodooo5 (1038) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Attractive mahogany pour w/ a big tan head that slowly fades into some decent lacing. Aroma is dominated by sweet malt. Taste is caramel malt that is very well balanced. Medium bodied, sweet, & quite smooth at 8%. This is a damn good beer!
