22oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours amber/brown with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of caramel and cereal malts with a little chocolate and nuttiness, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same, with a lot of malts. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

Bottle from riverside market. Pumpernickel brown. Rich malty aroma full of dark bread, spiced with caraway seeds. So it has a lovely combination of rich and dry. Alcohol punch in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A boozy, cloyingly sweet doppelbock that really lacks focus. The brewer clearly can’t brew this style.

Aroma: Floral notes, maple syrup , leaf compost.
