Found this to have a very bitter metallic aftertaste. Not sure if I just had a bad bottle or not but it was a drain pour.

Frankly, I’m drunk and, from an outside-looking-in perspective, wouldn’t trust my judgment (as regards rating this beer on it’s 5-point scale). Nevertheless, this was my introduction to this particular beer and I found it to be EXACTLY what I’ve been searching for.....perfectly seated between Russian Stouts and brown ales. I was also overwhelmed with the fact that it’s brewed right here in Virginia (F--- Yeah!) This beer gives me a mouth-feel and richness in between the two......and thoroughly kicked my ass after about five beers (I’m 6’1" & 235lbs)......perfect! Not too rich (like the former)......not too thin (like the latter)...and perfectly balanced alcohol to allow me to socialize before becoming too inebriated to perform. Okay, so if you like light beer.....take a hike; I’m obviously not talking to you. If you’re feeling "manly" and can’t even begin to consider anything below "Stout" rating, good for you.....go dead-lift a castle. But if you’ve been looking for that "kick your ass" beer with a full flavor and refreshing beer taste, try this beer; it is the shiznit. And that’s all I have tuh say about that...

Sampled a bottle at Mark’s house. Hazy brown complexion with minimal head. Not a bad choice for a winter session. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a brown color with off white head. Caramel, malty, earthy aromas. Caramel, syrupy, slight toffee flavors. Drinkable, but not a favorite seasonal.

1/22/2015. From bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Sweet fruity aromas with honey, malt and caramel. Sweet flavors, alcohol not showing much. Figs, malt, caramel. A nice seasonal brew.

Ok for a dopple. Rating on what it should be. Husband likes it but he isn’t a fan of the dopple. I found it lacking the malt and grainy goodness.

AmericanHobo (65) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2015
A nice winter warmer beer. Malty and sweetness with slight aroma of hops. Refreshing palate with crisp, smooth finish. Bold taste of roasted malts and toffee with maybe some carmel. Nice beer to enjoy by the fire on a cold winter night.

bubbleflubber (1887) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Pours amber-brown into the glass, with a fully reduced wispy head that leaves trace lacing. Malty sweet with rum bread to the nose. Flavors are toasted caramel malts and spices, with just a hint of ABV and spiced bready notes to finish. There are some very good things at work here. By the by, it’s a decent Doppelbock that satisfies on cold evenings, but a touch more dark ester complexity would catapult the offering to a top-shelf tier. Very nice, though. Definitely will have again due to its cold-weather comfort.

Really like these guys, more than likely due to all the Dead references, but the beer is pretty good as well! Nice, warm flavor. Not too sweet; doppelbocks can feel fuzzy on the tongue sometimes. Lovely color. Ruddy copperish. Slightly raisiny, nice bitterness. Malty enough, I guess!
