4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

3.8 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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a lager glass.
The appearence was a dark mahogany, clear with a smallish head that left like a train on a schedule, ffft and it was gone.
The aroma was a sweet carmel and malt with some herbs and spices.
tast ws sweet first then bitter then therem were notes of carmel, chocolate, citrus (mostly grapefruit)
The mouthfeel was very thick and slightly creamy.
Overall it was ok, the alcohol wasn’t disguised at points in the taste, and the impression that lasted the longest was GRAPEFRUIT! This isn’t my favorite Doppelbock but it was a solid beer none the less.
