2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle - Pours clear, deep orange with a minimal head. It smells of indeterminate malts and alcohol. The flavor is really sweet with obvious alcohol presence and a warming finish. This really isn’t a very good beer. I expected terrible though. It’s not terrible.

Triple Bock, eh? Doesn’t look like a bock beer of any kind - it is hazy neon orange, like an electric plastic pumpkin. Syrupy fruit and booze nose. Tastes overly sweet and even tart. It might be bitter, but that’s more likely just alcohol. I would never say a beer has too high a volume content, but this one lacks enough other elements to support it boozy aura. More like a poor Belgisch-pretender than German lager. Still better than most big brand malt liquors though, and that’s where this one belongs.

This beer. My god. Gold pour with a big head, lots of bubbles...Aroma is very grainy, some grapes, a bit of floral hops maybe? Flavor is fun, minus the alcohol. Ok maybe it’s not so great. Huge alcohol in the lingering malty finish, very sweet too. This one was a bit rough even for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I think I’m rating the correct beer. What I have here doesn’t really equal a dopplebock. The aroma is sweet, caramel, corn, booze. The appearance is orange, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, very sweet, corn, other adjuncts, some caramel. The finish is sweet, boozy. Medium in body, slightly thick. Drinkable, but not good.

Dark copper, off white foam. Aroma is harsh caramel, alcohol, butter, metal. Taste is not as sweet as expected, but noticeable alcohol, caramel, toffee, buttery, metallic finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
500ml bottle - $2.99 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Crystalline, light golden-amber body with a small, sudsy white head.
Smell: Shockingly corrosive ethanol and a secondary whiff of something artificial, something ominous wafting up from this sad, shameful brew. It’s a real feat to pick up any accents of malts or dark fruits.
Taste: Sugar and palate cutting alcohol annihilating any complexities, any subtler flavors, or really any hope for anything beyond a truly dreadful beer.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Reprehensible before, during, and after.

This is not a triple bock, but something you would buy as a novelty or a gift for an alcoholic friend. The label is an old classic. (almost as good as the same brewery’s Missing Elf cartoon). Pours orange with a very small white head. Nose is full of alcohol, corn and grains. Taste is very sweet, almost sickeningly sweet. Aroma also has sour apples, grain, and maybe even model airplane glue. Still not as bad as I feared, but I did split a 500ml bottle with my bass player buddy

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
orange color with no lasting head.
loads of alcohol in the nose... along with orange, canned peaches, florals and a bunch of sugary mess.
the flavor is all of the aforementioned mixed with apricots, sake/rice florals, cantaloupe/melons, vanilla and a choking amount of sweetness.
thick, chewy, gross. 3/2/3/2/3/

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Orange pour with a thin white head. Big props for the coolness of the label to start with. Aroma is a lot of alcohol mixed with some dried malts and some wet hay. Flavor is sweet at the start and moves to a very astringent and burning alcohol middle with a slight aftertaste of sweetness and diesel fuel. Potent.
