Bottle pours bright Brown with a medium tan head. Aroma and flavor are big caramel and yeast that ends very fruity.

12oz bottle from Chip’s in OBX. Clear deep amber color with a lasting light khaki head. Big intense aroma with lots of brown sugar and toffee, dark candied fruits, and alcohol. The flavor is a bit too sweet but otherwise nice and complex. Big candied dates and prunes, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, and booze. Full-bodied and syrupy, boozy and warming. Good in some ways but a bit intense and cloying.

355 mL bottle. Looks the part, with a small, beige head. Smells, bready, with a touch of alcohol, as it should. This carries over to the flavour, although there is not much else to speak of. Body is as creamy a doppelbock as I’ve ever had. A solid example of the style.

Pours clear light maple color, no foam from bottle. Sweet aroma, bread, yeast, raisin. Yeast and alcohol taste, hint of bitterness. Definitely not a bad beer but not very inspiring either.

Dark amber with a head that stays till the finish, and spots of lace. The aroma is appealing - a clean malt with dried fruit overtones. The taste is full roasted caramel malt with dried prunes and raisens. This grows to a carbonated bitter finish that is most satisfying. A big brew...sipping only, and deceptively strong. Recommended.

_angst_ (3067) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2012
355 ml bottle @ The Rover. Pours very hazy dark reddish brown with a very small nougat head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is very sweet and malty with sweet dark bread, pears in cognac, alcohol, caramel, burnt sugar, wood, oatmeal cookies, golden syrup, biscuits and hints of acetone. Taste is sweet, malty and tiny fruity with sweet dark bread, biscuits, golden syrup, wood, vanilla fudge, pears, apples, alcohol, caramel and hints of resins and cookie dough. Mouthfeel is round, sticky sweet, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet with caramel, wood, vanilla fudge, alcohol, pears and cookie dough. Quite nice...

Wow, what a pretty looking beer. Not much of a head, but a nice maple color. For lack of a better word, it had a woody taste. Smooth finish, and definitely a beer I would have again

jhliesen (755) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle--nice deep copper color with a small head that disapates. Alcohol is the most dominate aroma with plenty of yeast and bread. Bread and caramel are the main components of taste, with a thick syrupy, feel. Almost there, but not quite. Produce place, 2.49.

0,35 flaske på Liberty of the Seas: en fantastisk overraskelse å finne et slikt stjerneøl på en båt! Herlig aroma som følges opp av en skikkelig munnfull mørk karamell/sjokolade/sirup. Passe humlet, nesten som en god belgisk dubbel. Strålende.
