4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Hazy, deep, red-brown; 2-finger beige head disappears completely. Aroma is deep and heavy; sweet, malty, apple, raisin, toffee, bubble gum, yeast. Flavor rich, sweet, chewy, malty, caramel, vanilla, nutty, grass, a little spicy, and just barely some alcohol warmth in the exhale. Medium-thick body with more-than-average carbonation; medium coarseness in the bubbles but this really froths up in the mouth; slick, almost oily; barely sticky. There is virtually no alcohol presence here; well done for a nearly 10% beer. This one came out of nowhere; -nice- beer, Smuttynose.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks kerenmk. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, honey, some stale hops, and some fruitiness. Sweet flavor, malty, caramelly, with honey, molasses, stale hops, some fruitiness, and a mildly bitterish finish with some alcohol. Medium-bodied, kinda oily.

Bottle: It poured a murky chestnut color with very small white head. The aroma has dried fruit, caramel and toffee malt notes. The favor is the same with a slight alcohol finish. Overall it is well balanced but does have a bit of dryness at the end.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep cherry-wood into the glass, with amber-fringed hues. A reductive wispy head ensues, with trace lacing left over. The nose is of caramel and fruit/nut bread. Deep caramel and toffee, plums, sweet dark-pitted fruits, dates, and some light chalky pepper to finish. The ABV is noted, but well-integrated and never takes over. Substantial, yet smooth to the palate, this brew really opens up as it warms, where notes of oak and whiskey add to the complexity. A nice sipper for an aperitif or nightcap, definitely! Very nicely put together and enjoyable, reminiscent of a good cognac. Will have again!

bomber - nose is toffee/caramel (sweet). Sip adds booze, grass, roast, and more grass. Nose as sweet as the style suggest nor the nose. A little flat, but the roasted malt presence was a nice surprise.

An ok doppelbock, a bit one-note. Pours a muddy red with a tan head. Smells of maple syrup, honey, and strawberries. Taste is very sweet, with honey, strawberries and pepper. Malty aftertaste. Had in the bottle.
