3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flight shared with ebone1988 at the brewery. The pour is a brown orange color with almost no head. The aroma is sweet and malty as a dopplebock should be. There is a pretty hefty fruitiness in there that doesn’t belong. Light booze on the back end. Flavor is sweet malt water with a fruitiness on the back end. There is a strange bitter that’s hanging out on the back end that I don’t care for. The mouth feel is thin and watery. No carbonation helps this as it jumps off of the tongue and finishes with a lightly metallic malt. Damn book.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours with a beautiful dark amber red color. Aroma is sweet brown candied sugar with a strong hint of maple syrup and dark fruits and malts. The taste follows the nose. The first flavor comes straight from the maple syrup notes, but the malts and plum come in after, giving it a sweet flavor that is delicious. Hints of caramel on the finish. Full bodied creamy mouth feel. 8% alcohol is nowhere to be found. Outstanding beer

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Everything aside for a second...this beer is beautiful looking. Deep cordovan, rich looking beer. Smells nutty and caremel-y. There’s some toffee and sweet maltiness. Aroma isn’t in your face, but it’s definitely good. Taste is hazelnut, caramel, toffee and grainy. Like it says on the can, it’s definitely chewy as advertised. It feels like a big beer, but the alcohol is well hidden. Overall, it’s a great tasting doppelbock. Liquid bread is pretty accurate.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks Christina! Rich caramel aroma with notes of toffee, bread and dark fruit. Pours dark copper colored with a thin tan head that has poor retention and lacing. Starts with sweet caramel and toffee malt flavors with just a touch of chocolate. Finishes smooth with bready malt, dark fruit sweetness and a pinch of hoppiness. Really nice bock without the booziness of most.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into snifter. Beautiful ruby red color, pretty flat and looks like port wine in the glass. Smells of dark sugar. Medium light body. low carbonation. I don’t find this particularly sweet for the style, nor does the alcohol overwhelm the taste. Rich flavor with a bit of caramel and chocolate and hops, but everything is well balanced and gives this often fairly simply style a nice complexity. Although I like the style, I don’t drink a lot of dopplebocks, but if I do, this is one I will seek out
