1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap at Jack Rose. Pours a clear, deep reddish brune. Thick beige lacing. 360 sheets of lace. Smells like super sugary melted strawberry Twizzlers, cherry flavored medicine. Bracing for a sugar bomb. Taste is metallic, papery, very metallic to the point of metal shavings, rust, and blood hemaglobin. Ick.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep mahogany-russet colour with a white head that attempted valiantly to stay on top of the body of the beer. Significant allspice, carob, chocolate, caramel and date aromas. It is a full, dark and heady aroma that puts you in mind of pannatone, treacle tart or similar dessert cakes by a fire with a cigar to follow. The flavour is all of that with a lovely almost peppery note on a sweetish body. This beer is balanced, elegant and indulges the drinker with a fondness for dessert. In the lager world this has to be at the top end of its nobility. It struck me just where I like to be tickled and will willingly have more of this beer. Gorgeous.

Pours a dark brown color with a white creamy head. Smells of sweet caramel and Munich malt on the nose and tastes sweet like toffee and caramel with a rich Munich malt finish with some European hopps likely of the hallertauer variety.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 Pours a crystal clear amber with white head. Aroma of malt . Taste of coffee, malt, and carmel. Palate is fairly smooth and drinkable. Had a previous bottle that was a bit skunky, but this one was good. Overall, not a bad doppelbock. Thumbs up.

Quite syropy with hints of fruit and caramel. Makes for a very rough and "candied" drinking experience.
