Wow! A pleasent surprise. My first brew from this brewery. Have to be careful with this one. Taste so good you forget about the 8.2. And that my friend will cause you a world of hurt.

Pours a cloudy copper. The aroma is an earthy malt. There’s little to none of the pruniness of some doppels. I tasted this one with the Full Sail Mercator and it wasn’t the beer Mercator was.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice reddish brown with a good amount of foamy offwhite head that lasts. Aroma is sweet, nutty, rich and creamy, oaky, grapes, and sugar. Flavor is nutty and bitter, brown sugary, and dry. Overall, a pretty good brew.
