3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. It pours a slightly cloudy orange amber with a head that fizzles right away. There are malts upfront on the nose but there is also a harder alcohol note and black licorice. The body is medium. The taste also has a malty note followed by a weird bitterness that has bite to it. It is not something I would have often but I liked the name.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(500 ml bottle from Lou’s Beverage Barn) Pours golden with a thin off-white head. Aroma of candy-malt sweetness, maybe a little hay and/or honey. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, lightly prickly, quite sticky/syrupy. Flavor is sweet and a bit hot. Candy-malt and rosewatery sweetness with a bit of a bitter pinch in finish. No complexity, pretty much just syrupy sweetness and some alchohol. One of those one-dimensional, syrupy, hot blonde doppels (hot blonde...hhmmmm). Not really horrible or undrinkable but one I’d pass on in the future.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is one of the worst beers I’ve ever had. Tastes like pure alcohol, rubbing alcohol. It got one extra point for high alcohol content.
