Rusty hue with a small, tan, fast fading head that left little lacing. Aroma of honey wheat bread, toffee and ripe fruit. Caramel malt sweetness starts things off, bringing along notes of dark fruit, brown sugar and molasses. Full bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel with a long lasting finish.

Some roast and dark chocolate. Thick consistency. Black pour with mocha head and lacing. Light bitter finish with some sweetness. A hint of booze. Pleasant, easy to drink. Bottle.

monk191 (1545) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2014
A decent ale. Pours a very nice dark Amber with a tan head. Smells like beautiful vanilla bean. Taste however is not very complex. Smooth and malty but not the most interesting. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

ABUSEDGOAT (2424) - California, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Mahogany color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is dark bread, caramel, earth, syrup. Medium bodied, alcohol hidden well, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. The real deal.

bytemesis (5557) - 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...

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.
