3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle on a train into NYC, post-wedding. Pours cloudy brown with a fine, beige cream head. Sugary malt nose, some caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits. Medium sweet flavor, some dry bread, dried cranberries, lightly tangy caramel. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Rounded dark sugar finish, more caramel, light alcohol, some dust and dirt, a bit of demerara sugar. Overall it’s just OK.

Was afraid of this but pleasantly surprised. Smell of caramel Ruby brown murky mess no head no lacing. seems to be missing something but still very good. Good alcohol content warming. Imagine after 2 or 3 of these one would be feeling pretty good. Date on bottle was Nov 12. Was so impressed went back to grab a 6 er. I1ll age a few and see how they do. Boozy, sweet caramel very tasty. A strange and interesting brew. Nice job guys.

Bottled. Pours dark....generous caramels and malts, probably a little oversweetened for my tastes. ........................

Bottle. Pours a swampy sienna color. Very tiny head and little lacing if any. Aromas of apple cider, metal, hazelnut, spicy hops, bannanas, cloves, malts. Taste is boozey with honey, apples, tons of german hops and chocolate/caramel malts. Finishes sweet and slightly warming. Decent doppelbock from a brewer that I need to try more from.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2012 Semi malty aroma. Very sweety taste. Caramel sweety finish. Easy to drink and taste. Pretty easy to drink and a fairly complex flavor.
