DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
As with all my ratings, this one will be fair and un-influenced by outside forces, Pours hazy deep copper with off-white head. Nose is huge caramel and big hops. Tastes of caramel malt, big hops, too cloying of malt, like a liquid caramel overload. Finishes watwry and non-complex.

Poured clear dark amber with ruby highlights. Nice whispy lacing hung around ’till the end. I picked up a little aroma of malt and tried to imagine some chocolate. I was ready to diss this, but as it warmed the flavor expanded. I still didn’t pick up much chocolate but the maltiness increased and I didn’t detect any off flavors. Not bad for a $3.99 bomber.

Picked up a bomber of Toboggan for $4.99. Cocoa malts, medium bitterness, and a yeasty alcohol sweetness. Poured mahogany body and light foam into a stemmed German Veltins glass. Fancy labelled Northeast Pennsylvania Doppelbock.

Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body under a small fizzy off-white head that ran quickly to a thin ring. The nose is richly malty with a nice caramel and munich malt quality. I was a little worried when it said crystal malt, but it doesn’t come across in the aroma. Minimal chocolate and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is just OK for me, it’s not quite as rich and smooth as I was hoping for, it’s a little too grainy and doesn’t come across as especially well lagered. The chocolate is pretty subtle. just a light hint of cocoa powder on the late finish. Some moderate alcohol heat on the finish as well. A little too much fizzy prickly carbonation for my tastes as well. Meh, this could be worse, but I expect better things from these guys, especially where lagers are concerned.

Leafs93 (1649) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Pours amber with an off white tannish head. Looks great. Aroma is chocolate, caramel and slight roast. Taste is sweet with a trace bitterness. Clean finish with some astringent overtones.

Strykzone (4831) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle in a locals trade with jdb288. An amber beer that sports a tan foamy head. I smell bready malts but not a lot. First sip is cocoa and then alcohol is tasted. It has a sharp bitterness. The beer becomes quite sweet with very rich malts. A bit of fruit is tasted underneath, and I mean way underneath, the malts. This is not bad and I tend to like sweeter beers.

Draft at unos . Pours clear amber with a small off white head. The aroma is really bland.. Light cocoa and light grain. The taste has faint chocolate but is really just a mediocre dark lager.
