4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Pours a fairly clear amber-brown with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of rich caramel malts, brown sugar, dark fruits, vanilla, molasses, some bready malts, and some booze.
T - Starts off with a mix of rich caramelized malts and some raisin and other sweet dark fruits. Through the middle, brown sugar and molasses come through with some vanilla and bready malts. The finish is a mix of sweet caramelized malts, dark fruits, bready malts, and some booze.
M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a bit thick with a sweet and warming finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced doppelbock with a good strong and complex malt profile.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber poured into glass. Doppelbocks are just too much for me, this one especially. Too sweet and heavy on the malt. Almost impossible for me to drink more then a glass.

22oz bottle, 2010 vintage, shared with Robby. Hazy red / brown color. Thin khaki head. Light, crisp carbonation. Dry finish. Bit of loose lace. Big chunks of yeast on the bottom. Very smooth, rich and robust malts. Aromas of dark fruit, toasty malt. Earthy hops. Light bitter and sweet taste. Nice, rich longer aftertaste. Solid, rich and smooth doppelbock.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, 2010 release. Pours hazy reddish copper color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some decent spotty lacing on the glass, with a good amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big raisin, prune, biscuit, toast, molasses, toffee, caramel, nuttiness, earth, light roasted malt, and herbal. Very nice and well balanced doppelbock aromas with good complexity. Taste of big raisin, molasses, prune, toffee, biscuit, toast, nuttiness, earth, light roasted malt, and herbal spiciness. Light spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark fruit, molasses, toffee, toast, caramel, biscuit, nuttiness, roasted malt, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor complexity and balance. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a moderate warming after the finish. This was very easy to sip on when I opened it, and it gained a bit more heat as it warmed up. Overall this is a damn nice doppelbock. Nice flavor balance and complexity; and pretty smooth to sip on. Got a little bit boozy as it warmed up, but was still a highly enjoyable brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[22fl oz bottle] Dark brown beer with a cream-coloured head. Smooth, sweet chocolate and alcohol on the nose. Less booze on the flavour, it hides the alcohol very well on the flavour. Probably because it’s so sweet – essentially it tastes something like a hot chocolate (albeit a cold, hot chocolate). Other, nutty, flavours arrive as the aftertaste comes in. Some great balance in there

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Sylvain from 2011. Hazy light mahogany with a creamy tan head that disappears quickly but with a quick swirl will come back. Caramel, raisins, grain, semi sweet malts, and alcohol present throughout but especially at the beginning. Moderate carbonation and body, prickly from the alcohol, sweet with a hint of bitter, becomes somewhat dry but alcohol and dried fruit takeover.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is toffee and malt, really delicious. Poured a beautiful ruby red with a huge off white head. Taste is a sweet nutty raisin mix and a slightly bitter finish. Feels full bodied with a thick texture.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good doppel. Served at a good temperature with a nice thick, creamy, cream-colored head that slowly settles to a partial thin cover and ring with some lace. Color is a clear orange copper with a few bubble trails. Aroma is malt, brandy, toffee, a little caramel. Flavor is like nose and sweeter today than when I first had it last night and more boozy too. Body is good; ditto carbonation. Finsish is like flavor and has a very mild brandy-like warming. Tasty brau.

Bottle... Poured deep, brownish, ruby, mahogany, with a light tan head. Nose had biscuit and cracker malt with some dark fruits. This was very bread-like. Dark fruits like grapes, plums and raisins.
