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.

A great rich, complex full bodied double bock. This beer is all it is said to be , and more.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Attractively dark, malty aroma, and carmelly sweet in flavor offset with nice bitterness. Well carbonated but pours with a short lived head. Good lacing remains clinging to the glass. Pleaseant moderately long lasting finish

Nice fruity aroma with chocolate notes. Hearty malt body. Hoppiness balances nicely with maltiness. Banana and vanilla notes.

Poured a dark amber color with a small whitish grey head. Sweet aroma of brown sugar, carmel and bread. Tastes similar to the aroma with the added light hints of an unidentified citrus. Has a medium body with not alot of carbonation. Short bitter finish. I like this beer, and would definitely buy more.

Poured from bottle to wide mouthed Chimay glass. Color is a deep red-brown. Pleasant malty aroma with hints of caramel and spice. Somewhat complex flavor, tastes of caramel, spices, roasted malts, hops and alcohol. All in all a tasty brew.

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.
