Gold-red, off white head. Aroma is bread and toast. Taste is caramel, toast, biscuit. By far the best beer I’ve had from these guys.

Half Liter bottle. $2.50 @ Binny’s. Yes, this is what I’m drinking after taking care of Santa’s visit. You know the fly-by-night video labels that rush out rip-off versions of popular Disney animated features so they’re in the stores before the home video release? Movies like "Ratatoing" or "Little Cars?" It seems this label wants to rip off Ridgeway’s "Bad Elf" and "Santa’s Butt." And yet I bought it.
Okay, pours a nice orange yellow in my stem, with a thin bit of foam atop. Some heavy malt smell, but also the telltale fusel of cheap malt liquor. Not sure what this has that would qualify it as a doppelbock. Taste not anywhere in the bock category, but you know what? It’s almost usable as a cheap strong Eastern Bloc beer. Alcoholic with no hop to speak of, but it will help me get to bed so Santa can finally visit our house. And a merry Christmas to all…

Pours a two finger white head that that vanishes without a trace of lace. Crystal clear almost light amber color, unusual for a DB. Malt/nut nose. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is sweet nutty malt. High ABV is hidden. Better as it warms. Cool label. $3.20 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear, bubbly gold with white head. The aroma is quite grainy with some sweet cookie notes and some fruitiness. The flavor is sweet and grainy with a little bit of a sticky pear and white grapejuice behind it. Toward the finish comes a slight hop bitterness with hay and some dust. Biscuit and yeast aftertaste. Meh.

Clear pale gold with very little head. Aroma- (courtesy of Tom- wasp sperm, lilly butter, hot dog water) apple, bread, caramel, alcohol, spice. Taste is sweet and syrupy with a bitter roast finish. Malts are toasty and bready. Medium light body and low carbonation. Alcohol is a little boozy.

Dark yellow pour with a thin white head that dissapated immediately. Aroma is sweet. Taste is sweet and a little metallic. The label is better than the beer.

Bottle. I’ve never had a doppelbock that was such a light color. A light golden, amber color. Didn’t have that strong malt flavor one might expect from a doppelbock either. Still, this wasn’t a bad beer. Aroma was similar to other beers brewed by Rinkuškiai. Flavor was caramel, bread with just a tad too much alcohol taste. Recommended at least once.
