2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I tried this twice. Both times, the aroma had hints of malty breadiness mixed with a pronounced skunk odor. The pour was beautiful. The flavor was unusually salty for beer with a woody sort of aftertaste. I was disappointed, though I suppose it is possible that I got two past-prime batches.

On tap at... Houlihans (a chain resturaunt) ? Very dark red with a small beige head. A toasty dark fruit aroma. I can taste some cherry and raisin, along with the roasted malts. Barely any sign of the alcohol until the Whiskey/Scotch aftertaste. Very good levels of carbination and a very unique flavor.

Smells of caramel and bread, pours a clear brown, medium sweetness, full body. A really great beer to drink on a cold night. Full of sweet malty flavor with a nice smooth warm finish.

Smells of roasted malt. Pours a rusty brown-red with a sandy head that appears as fast as it goes away. It’s a savory brew. I feel like I am drinking a meal, but a well balanced light meal. Very tasty. Full bodied and delicious. Not too shabby Troegs brothers.

Dark brown mahogny color. Aroma consists of malts and caramel. The taste is similar to the aroma with what I suspected to be hints of dried fruit. There is a nice after taste which stays on your palate for a minute after you finish a sip. Nice strong body perfect for the winter season.

One of my favorite beers of all time. Its got some punch behind it due to its high amount of alchohol. The bar tender told me when I bought it that she doesn’t allow people to buy more than 2 of these in a sitting, lawl. Very, very sweet with a malty sweet finish. Flavor is fruity and sweet and tastes very good.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Waaaaaay too hoppy for the style............... Although this beer demonstrates good malty character, it is overshadowed by hoppy finish. Bocks and dopplebocks are clasically malty, sweet, and full-bodied with no real hint of hops throughout the tasting experience. This beer has hops apparent in the finish.
