4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very strong aroma for the style. Syrupy brown sugar, some EtOH. The flavour holds up too.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer poured a dark amber color and formed an off white bubbly head that was bit sudsy and left some lace. The aroma was of malt and caramel and a touch of chocolate. The flavor was of malt and chocolate with a touch of caramel. The body was a bit light for this style and not as creamy as others. The finish was light, but didn’t find it as bad as others mentioned, just a touch astrigent

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2003 a little sweet, long lingering caramel taste, but it gives a nice bloom with little bitterness. A very nice bock.

Really outstanding beer of this style. It’s rich, malty aroma and flavor, has some caramel flavors, along with some nut flavors. It finishes sweet, and lingers nicely

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick amber color with a healthy head in this doppelbock that has the heavy malt aroma desired of the style as well as a smooth mid-range malt body. Easy on the palate--not overrich--the trap to which some doppelbocks succumb. A great beer of this style--one that is restrained in flavoring, and thus, should claim a broad appeal.
