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.

Thanks to whomever the rater that sent me this beer is! It has been so long that I have forgotten!
A redish chestnut colored body sits beneath a faint wispy tan head. The aroma is largely nutty with notes of toasted honey wheat bread. The flavor is just that… sweet with honey and maple syrup, almonds and big suggestions of cashew are prominent. The malts are powerful and fruity. There is a hint of the higher alcohol on the right
middle of each sip. A light citrus peel bitterness hits in the finish. Another beer that is leaving my lips sticky and my belly warm.

A sublte bock with a very malty taste. Alcohol is hidden but the beer brings forth a smooth warm feeling. Copper color with an excellent aroma. Creamy and frothy poor with a smooth finish. Great with voodoo shrimp!

My favorite new beer (for me at least). Strong and hoppy, with a manly 8.2% alcohol, it has a happy flavor, though it may be better in the fall and spring than the heat of summer.
