3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber from BevMo. It pours a very dark, hazy amber color with a short lived off white head. The aroma has fruity malt notes of plum, pear, apple, some caramel and bread with slight hints of molasses. The flavor is powerful with caramel, rich fruity malts, hints of burnt toast and cocoa with some syrup and molasses in the finish. There’s some discernible bitterness in there as well, but doesn’t add much character other than to balance out the big sweet maltiness. Overall, it’s sweet, caramelly, toasted and bitter in the finish. Not very German in character and hard to drink more than a few ounces.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is faint, but caramel seems to be the dominate fragrance. A clear mahogany pour with a rapidly dissapating white head and no lacing. The taste, as expected, is very malty, some sweetness, and a touch of alcohol burn with a dryish finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, ok, but there are better examples of Dobblebock out there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown with red highlights. Nose is surprising; bready, a bit of raspberry, dark malts, maybe a bit of brown sugar. Taste is ridiculously malty, brown sugar, bready, very sweet, a hint of fruity raspberry notes. I don't love the style, it's ok.
