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.

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.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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.

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.

I have to wonder if my beer is actually a new twist on this beer. It has After on top, Before below, and it says Premium Lager and 1%, which doesn’t match with the rest of this. Looks like most of the rest of these beers. Boy, the headache is her, and I still have another beer from these guys to go tonight. Tomorrow is going to be tough. :(
