Flaska@Monks Sveavägen. Brunrödfärgad vätska med fingertjock skum. Doft av bröd, mörk sockerkaka och en hint av kanel. Stor maltsöt kropp med relativt tunn besk avslutning.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours a dark reddish-brown; clear but nearly opague. Has a short-lived and rather small tan head but leaves some lacing.
Aroma: sweet and attractive smell of roasted malts; faintly spicy
Taste: slightly spicy and hoppy flavor, but dominated by sweet, medium and darker roasted malts. Slightly nutty. Good hop/malt balance.
M: good medium carbonation level; slightly dry in the finish.
O: pretty good example of an American dopplebock..

Mörkt brun öl med ett lättare beige skum. Doften är ordentligt söt med malt och karamell. I smaken tillkommer även vissa rostade noter, choklad och lite rostade nötter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Upon a second try (sober try) not as good. Original rating was a 4.2
Good solid, dark, malty beer. Strong chocolate flavor, not overpowering. Pours a very dark color with a hint of crimson. This beer doesn’t do anything extraordinary, but that is what makes it such a great beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours an extremely deep crimson with a tan head. Nice fruity aroma, cherry and plum, a bit of breadiness. Toasty malt flavor, smoky and light molasses, hint of dark fruit. Frankly I think this is a pretty nice one.

Dark brown pour. Good taste and mouth feel. Solid beer but nothing outside ordinary.....

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Malty. creamy. Some sweet roasted notes.
A: Looks ok. Color is a thin brown. Head retention is alright, looks creamy.
T: Like every Thomas Creek beer: very malty. Subtle hints of roastiness. A nice sweetness. Decently balanced but the malt really takes over. I guess for a lager it’s pretty balanced. Drinks more like a bock than a dopplebock.
P: Lighter on the palate. Smooth and creamy but malt and carbonation cuts through a little bit too much.
Overall, this tasted like a thomas creek beer: super malty. There are hints of roastiness but it doesn’t bring anything special. A good beer, but nothing great.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown pour with a small bubbled tan head. Rich aroma sweet and a tiny touch smoky. Light chocolate and syrupy aromas mixed with a light smokey/roasty note and some earthy nuttiness. Average palate, a bit over carbonated and thin for the style. Flavor is not as good as the aroma an adjunct malt flavor, weak syrups a bit wattery chocolate and light coffee in the finish but not in a good way more like cheap coffee grounds left lingering. Sadly disappointing.
