A blond doppelbock. Well carbonated and a tall, thick head. Fruit and sugar in the aroma. Very sweet, but also powerful alcohol presence, this is for slow sipping. Thick on the palate, but the heat means I canít drink a lot of it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is very powerful with notes of alcohol, fruits, and caramel - somewhat like a dessert wine. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of alcohol and fruit both fresh and some over ripe making it a bit heavy, leading to a somewhat alcoholic finish. The alcohol leaves a burn on the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled during Cellarís Wine & Spirits weekly beer tasting, shared by Joebrew. From bottle, pours a dark hazy golden brew with a thick off-white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweetened caramel malt, a touch of spice, some light cherries, and a touch of brown sugar. Taste is quite high in alcohol. Medium to full bodied, light carbonation with additional flavors of caramel malt, dark pitted fruit and a touch of black pepper. Finish is quite smooth, warm from the high alcohol with a semi-sweet caramel and brown sugar aftertaste. Iíd like to try this after a couple of years of aging.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle, thanks Joebrew] Pours dark gold with a big off-white head. Aroma is a little grainy and sweet with just a bit of alcohol. Taste is also very malty sweet with a hint of caramel and with the alcohol a little more prominent. Medium mouthfeel with a long finish. Very smooth. Wow, the first time I had this I didnít get the sweetness I did the second time--tone that down and this might be alright.
