3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 It had been a while since I had sipped upon this interesting brew. It has not held up well in my esteem, as I recall thinking much higher of it in the past.+++ Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer pours a golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is of sweet plums. The flavor is very sweet and the mouthfeel is thick. There is a pronounced alcohol burn that actually makes you think that you are drinking something with far more than the 9.6% alcohol contained. Overall a tasty sipping beer, but the alcohol burn is really too pronounced.

Color is a nice amber with a small white head. Very transparent with tiny bubbles floating around. Aroma is very sweet with a honey and fruity smell to it. Taste carries this apple sweetness with a thick malty taste. Very thick and creamy.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours like apple juice with very little head. Aroma is hoppy with some honey in there. Flavor is sweet and alchohol to the point of being overpowering. Im liking this less as I drink more. Kind of tough to handle.

Clear golden color with nice sized white head. This I wasn’t expecting from a dopple, but oh well. Aroma was honey-like without anything much else. Big alcohol, malty flavor with a small bit of molasses. Full bodied and strong.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Eeeesh. I’ll be really blunt, this swill is awfull. Amber-red color. Aroma of alcohol and yeast(?). Weak flavor of malt and strong flavor of alcohol. Doesn’t feel like a bock at all.
