3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear mahogany with a thick and fine-bubbled light tan head that leaves generous lacing. Shy, malty aroma has notes of cloves and cinnamon and a whisper of caramel. Flavor is considerably bolder than the aroma, malty with oak, clove, caramel and cinnamon tones providing a nice background. A snip of miso pops up as well. Firm, smooth texture has decent fizz and leaves a woody finish that has cloves and cinnamon hints. No butts about it, this is a worthy beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cellared 12 oz. bottle from the 6th Annual FoWBAB(2008) Entry B615, described as Doppelbock aged on finely toasted, Hungarian oak. Shared and poured to snifters with a fairly clear, copper color, a modest layer of off white, bubbly foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was sweet, grape & cherry, vinous character, with tannins & oak combined with olives on the back. The taste contributed tartness, light spice, continued vinous nature, but was soft textured, with little to no effervescence. Interesting, but seemed well past prime.

Poured from tap to glass. Amber hue with off white head. Aroma is nice with oak, roasted malt, smoke, vanilla, sulphur. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry malt sweetness throughout with a wonderful wood astringent following and slight sulphur in the finish. Overall this is wonderful.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Big malt and oak in the nose up front. Some toffee and toss behind that. Pours a fairly clear amber red color with almost no head. Taste is a sweet candy malt up front with some chewiness in the mouthfeel. Finish shows off the vanilla and wood character but also some very strong alcohol warming all the way to the ears. Tame down the hot and the wouldn’t be too bad.
