Good hop malt balance. Body is a little lacking. Finish is clean. An enjoyable beer overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice cloudy light brown appearance.
Very light aroma. Smooth going down.
Mild woody taste. Winey sweet/sour aftertaste,
which I'm not fond of. Not my style.

Cold 12oz. emptying a brilliant amber with moderate carbonation reducing to thin fizz. Lots of molassess over malts with raisiny inflections. As aromas denote, a similar lush and chewy palate. Balanced crisp finish. 5 left to sample at varied temp.

Caramel color with good initial head presence that last sin the lacing process. Smell is a deep malt with molasses notes. Taste is deep and rich in malt and molasses with a hint of hops. Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth rich and deep. Drinkability is excellent.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice amber color with a quickly fading off-white head. Dark fruits dominate the nose, with some toasty notes and a little caramelly flavor. The toasty notes become more prominent in the taste, but still play a supporting role to the dark fruits; low to medium bitterness complements a nice, chewy mouthfeel. However, the alcohol in this is a bit too present. Overall, a solid doppelbock, tasty but nothing extraordinary.
