Barrel aged version poured a cloudy dark brown with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of cherry, orange, vanilla, oak and maple. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of apple, cherry, wood and carmel with a dry slightly bitter finish.

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Murky brown color with a thin head. Aroma of sweet celery. Very bittersweet malt taste with a finish of mint. Possibly some grape or plum bits at the end. Weird.

Draught, ABR 2009. Good caramel malt. Standard bock flavor, malt, no hops really. Brown color. A solid doppelbock.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Dark dark brown in color with a nice cap of foarm. Served in a brandy snifter. Chocolate aroma with a thick chocolate body and a portish characteristic though the alcohol was very pronounced.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Dark Brown Coloring with sandy Ring. Malty and Somewhat Grapey Aroma. Rich Malt, with a Dusty Dry Malt Aftertaste...Grapey Tang From Malt and Caramel Resides with a Light Alcohol Presence. Certainly an Enjoyable Dopple, But Nothing Stellar.

A pre-release growler. how nice. Not as nice as a bottle-conditioned sample like some people get...sigh...Anyway... Pours from the growler a deep russet brown, with a slim, disappearing head (looked bigger on pre-release pints my pals enjoyed this afternoon...maybe it’s the glass I’ve employed)... Aroma is rich and sweet, toffeeish, deep with malt, and, frankly, delicious...a most sublime candy bar, melted down, and whipped up for us to enjoy, very likable, hell, lovable! Thick entry on the mouth, slick, supremely tasty, malt-tastic, I say, the very key to happiness, found in a beer glass. Caramel is here, too, all the sweet malts at work...and the intoxication starts it’s course... Mouthfeel is nice and mild, sweet, but never too much so, lighty drying off in the finish, leaving every new sip and suckle all the more satisfying. A wonderful shock of fantastic taste greets one anew. Goes down with ease, though the booze factor jumps and demands to be noticed...not too hard, but it slows down appreciation. This is a kind creation of Mr. Haug, a well-appreciated doppel, and I’m glad I finally got a

Served at Winterfest in St. Paul, MN on Feb. 8. Good, heavy alcohol aroma. Extremely and overbearingly malty flavor. I've heard of bitter beer face (which is a joke, by the way), but this brew will give you malty beer face.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Rich, roasted malt hammer over the head, with big toffee/caramel/dried fruit/raisins/and sweet, sweet, toasty MALT! Thick wine-like texture and mouthcoating qualities, but not cloying at all. Big alcohol (11%) presence that is pretty prominent, but not overbearing in any way. Very well done.

Minneapolis (new recipe with weyerman caramunich, caravienne, special B and 100 percent hallertrau.) Semi-translucent and murky chocolate chestnut brown in color with a creamy tan wrung hugging the edges of the glass like froth to a saucepan. Chocolate diligence draws on a mild cocoa character while hitting rolled and toasted pecans along the way. Medium baked brownies meet a darker, earthen element akin to toasted wood chips cooled with a light pool of chocolate. It’s a predictor of sweet flavorful fulfillment to come. And it’s there, with an omnipotent chocolate caramel tract weaving between full, high alcohol embodiment. Tame, balanced and bright, with a mocha cocoa complexity that only further reinforces its chocolatey balanced formulation. Caramelized pralines take on a dusty hazelnut sweetness with a tiny injection of batter saturated pistachios. Gentle carbonation and palatable alcohol primeness make a perfect match with caramel infused Tollhouse cookie dough tubes. Chewy yet low in the FG department. Beers like this can either make or break a brewer. Here’s to one hell of a vote for this brewery’s new brewer and his natural inclinations and incantations.
