Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Leary’s, Newburyport, MA. Aroma is bready malt with caramel, red wine. Appearance is clear red with nice sparkle, small 1/2 finger-width head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is rich sweet malts with caramel, vanilla. Palate is full bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and malty finish with just a splash of bitterness and mild warmth in the esophagus and stomach. Overall, good representative of the style and very good.

Found 5 his bottle in the back of my fridge from a spring time trip south. Cloudy brown pour. Bready malty notes with a touch of brown sugar and some florality as well. Somewhat sweet tasting as warming to the palate but lingering finish. Very good beer.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a beautiful brown clear color with a little bit carbonation. Has a breasy, almost rye aroma. Tastes a bit like bourbon, dry, an okay brew.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Potent double bock with lovely aroma of hard roasted malt, dark bread and a little coffee. The taste varies over dark chocolate, very dark rye bread (pumpernickel), a little hard coffee and roasted malt with a very small tone of smoked malt. The sweetness is relatively high and syrupy, and it’s actually a little sorry for the acts most like a dobbelbock which has been added a portion syrup, rather than a double bock beer with natural malt sweetness. The taste also contains some dried fruits and a bit nuts. Unfortunately, its fruit taste a tart shade of some fruit acid, and it bears it from being completely comparable with the best German double bocks. It has otherwise many fine bars and a soft carbonation that makes it rich in malt flavor. Hop bitterness is also balanced fine, but its a little too high fruit acid (which can resemble cherry), which I do not think belongs in a good double bock. The finish is dry and as such it is a tasty and vinous beer, however, is just a little too sweet and slightly tart.
