Bottle. That i was planing to make this my night cap at 9.5% but i just can’t. Pours a honey toned body with a thin white head. Aroma is abrasive, pinesol, paint, dingy malt body, corny, malt liquor like. Heavy corn syrup, with sweet and bitter tones. Rice, adjunct, corn, makes me make a bitter beer face. God this is horrid. Appleish honey husky hay corn. Just bad, i could finish it but God why the hell would i! I’m gonna drain pour the rest of the beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle: Golden clear, no head, light fizz. Sugar, berry and aspartame with creamed corn and light metal in the nose. Lightly balanced and warming, some sweetness in the finish and a husky grain note in the tail. Sharp.

How did I almost miss this Yuletime gem from my favorite Lithuanian brewer? This is one of those INO (in name only) doppelbocks. It pours a rich golden body with a foamy white head that soon devolves into some film and a slender ring around the glass. The aroma is buttered wet hay, some runny caramel, and a whiff of nail polish remover. The flavor is much the same but with a shake of canned corn... a tad too sweet on the caramel, but that is cut by the alcohol burn in the back of the throat. Another interesting experience courtesy of Rinkuškiai, and a bargain at $1.99 for half a liter, but certainly no Žaibo.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Clear orange, no head. Sweet boozy aroma. Sweet boozy flavor. It gets a little drier as it warms, and note of honey as well. OK, I suppose.

Nice easy drinking Dopple. Golden in color, clear with a nice head. Good flavors malt forward with light hops backing. For a late season beer it held up well.

Some definite alcohol aroma. These beers are starting to look and smell the same. This is an okay beer, definitely not a doppelbock. More like another strong pale lager with a slighter darker color. The label is the best thing about this beer.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Wow. Dreadful beer. Sugary and brutal. but does have some Bock undertones. Artificially sweet orange sugar, faint yeasty butter. Horrid stuff.

cheap (3975) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Another nasty beer from Rinky. I swear that they only make two kinds of beers; a high alky and a 5% and only change the labels. I’ve had many of these rinky’s and they all taste the same; just plain RUDE. One of my beer brewing buddies has confirmed they only make two beers and several labels. All the labels are interesting to look at fer sure. Now, on to this beer wannah be. Slightly cloudy pale yellow. Smell is just plain old rude high gravity lager that has been aged in a can tho this came from a bottle. Taste almost encourages the gag reflex, how nasty. Sickening sweet cloying yuck of a beer. All that near gag reflex thing happening makes me forget all about any possible carbonation. Later. This is an insult to infer this is a holiday beer. What a mess, typical cheap baltic beer.

wlajwl (3772) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma is caramel/toffee and a strong hint of sweetness. The flavor is toffee, big sweentess and a mildly alcoholic finish. One-dimensional but decent enough.

bottle. clear orange with no bubbles and no head. sour, metallic nose. flavor is sweet with purple grapes and gum. a fine, sharp bubbles carbonation with a syrupy body.
