interesting effort. almost mead like sweatness. some malt - hops are barely present. lots of honey flavor. can’t say this is how I would’ve done it - but it’s definitely worth trying.

Pale amber. Fruity and malty aroma, almost sweetish. Malts and fruits are back in the flavor and comes along with some honey. Quite nice body.

An unclear orange beer with a disappearing head. The aroma is of alcohol, oranges, peach, and honey. The flavor is dry with notes of honey and peach, on an alcoholic background.

Clear amber, off-white head. Malt, bread and smallish honey notes in the aroma. Quite some maltsweetness, but not cloying. Medium bodied.

I remember this beer was pretty good last time I had it. This time it sucked and I wondered why. Then I looked at the label - Wilkes-Barre. The bottles are contracted to Lion Inc. So here’s what I think of that genius plan:
Hazy amber colour. Aroma of alcohol, nuts, honey. Thinnish body with alcohol and maybe some honey and caramel. Nothing else.

Bottled: Orange coloured. Clear. Off white head. Honey, malt and a bready tone in the nose. Is very sweet (almost cloying) and somewhat alcaholic in the flavour. Has some light chocolate notes. Is light bitter in the end. I had them worse, but this is a quite boring dobbelbock

Medium amber with a bright white fading head. Laces nicely. Mildly malty body, with hops in the back. This may be on the verge of going skunky. Honey and caramel on toast and a slight bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Every once andd a while I run into a beer that I know I have had and thought I had rated, but this is really odd. I have had at least a dozen of Stoudts brews and I just noticed I have not rated any!? I got some drinking to do. That quite alright I I typically like the brews from this brewery. Enough of the rant, now for the rate. Deep golden color with a dense off white head. Heavy malt aroma with a follow of mild hops, dry honey and a touch too much alcohol. Light pale malt and honey driness. Again alcohol rears its head. Could use a bit more malt or less honey to balance this out. Non the less I di enjoy its warming qaulities.

Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Nice beer. A little thin for me for a doppelbock. Nice honey flavor to it. Duh maybe because it's a honey bock. Anyway. Needed a little more malt character to it.
