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.

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.

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

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours dark golden with a thin quickly receding off-white head. Strong medicinal aroma, cotton candy, sickly sweet. Notes of honey, syrup, metal and fusels. Heavy with light carbonation. Very harsh, not at all enjoyable to drink. Drainpour.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer pours clear beer brown with almost no head. Aroma is flat of extremely sweet caramel and just plain sugar. Taste is overwhelmingly sweet of caramel and sugar cube with a very noticeable amount of booze. Not a wonderful beer, won’t drink again

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pours a clear orange with a tan ring around the edge of the glass. Scent is carmel, candy sugar and booze. Taste is sugar bomb with some fruit, caramel and sugar.

Special thanks to cheapdark for this one (or maybe he doesn’t like me?). I love the label on this bottle, the beer, well, in your face, rude, crude 12%abv. You can taste the alcohol, not much in the way of aroma, complexity or balance. This is a beer to drink when you want to get drunk. But, I enjoy trying different brews, and this one is different. Thanks again Big D! I owe you!
