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.

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.

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.....

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.
