Brownish pour, off white head. Honey and more honey in this one. Malty, bready notes and honey all over the place!

JDBaker11058 (1354) - Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Appearance: deep, dark, clear ruby, with a white, bubbly head that lingers aggressively. Aroma: lots of honey, dark grains, chestnuts, brown bread, caramel, cardboard, leather, and a hint of dark fruit. Taste: bock-like malts, with honey, and a hard-to-describe rustic bread note, with honey and a surprising amount of fruit as it warms (peaches, cherries, even citrus); lots of sweet-roasted nuts also. Finish: smooth, slightly crisp, and a little sweet. Notes: The flavor and aroma had a very hard to characterize note of somehow extremely rustic grain, almost like a very rough whole-grain bread. Didn’t particularly love that, but this was a very interesting beer nonetheless. I also wouldn’t really categorize it as a doppelbock, because it’s very different than any doppel I’ve ever hard. More like a rustic farmhouse lager-bock. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Nice honey bock. Strong honey aroma, even stronger honey flavor. A very smooth beer, with a stunning brownish-hued gold color.

the honey aroma comes at you as soon as you open the bottle. weird that it says "ale" on the label. i thought bocks were lagers.

Ratman197 (10192) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2013
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear brown withj a lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness, yeast and light spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, fruittiness and spice with a smooth lingering fruity finish.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2013
750 ml. Deep amber body. Big, frothy cream head, mostly lasting. Aroma of honey, poplar veneer, chestnut, caramel, clover. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. For as sweet as this starts out (with tastes of strawberry, alcohol, chestnut, honey), the sweetness falls off in the finish. Raw honey dominates the taste and combined with some hop bitterness, it produces a raw floral, earthy, wood veneer taste that came across as an off-flavor. Interesting and different, but not necessarily satisfying.

Deep copper pour with a dense lasting cream head. Great lacing. Aroma is strawberry candy, caramel, and some dough. Taste is caramel, strawberry candy, bread, and a little syrup and a bit of nuttiness. Sweet overall. Very soft carbonation. Creamy texture. This is a very interesting beer.

Direi non male questo esperimento del birrificio ticinese, miele in una doppelbock. Bella presenza, ambrato carico, al naso prevale il miele con sentore affumicato. Anche in bocca il miele domina, con un finale leggero fumè e amaro appena...
