Pours a ruddy brown. Strong plum, dark fruit aroma with matching flavor. Touch of munich malt in the background, but subsumed by strong dark caramel malts (120/special B). Would liked to have tasted more bready malt, less caramel--a bit cloying for a dopplebock.

Pours deep amber with little to no head. Light malty caramel nose. Taste is malty and sweet with a slight warming. Alcohol is nicely carried with similarities to a barelywine, but with a deeper maltiness. Love it!

Poured a deep red with a creamy off-white head that left a huge amount of lace. Sweet aroma with caramel and even some chocolate in the nose. Not a huge fan of this style. Definate kick on the first taste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep copper color with a thin tan head that fades quickly. Very malty smelling. Bready, sweet aroma. Taste: dry beginning, and goes toward a sweet, savory finish. Mouthfeel is chewy but a bit bubbly as well. Long, malty finish. I’m somebody who loves malty beers, so I definitely enjoyed this one. Substantial and satisfying.

This is an interesting beer. The aroma is black cherries with a hint of flowers. I have dissipated fairly quickly but the balls around the ram are nice brownish color. The taste is where is excels. A strong caramel flavor with toffee overtones really brings us together. Finally the mouth feel is very smooth this is a really good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear amber beer with a nice off white head. Aroma is nutty, caramel and touches of vanilla. Flavour is nicely malty with a wonderful mouthfeel. This is a full bodied Dopplebock with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. Quite drinkable.

12 Oz. Bottle. Nice and malty. Seemed a little thin at first for a dopplebock. Flavor and aroma improved with time-out-of-bottle.
