3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance- light tan bubbly head (like a mocha latte). Dissipated quickly and minimal lacing. Fairly dark, mahogany, amber, copper.
Smell- clean, malty, sweet, fruit (raisins), spices. Sherry-like. Very pleasant.
Taste- reminded me of a scotch ale. Sweet, malty, caramel.
Mouthfeel- light to medium body. Creamy. Well balanced.
Overall- a very nice beer. A good effort by a great brewery at a Dopplebock. Most impressed by the evenly balanced mouthfeel given the various aromas and tastes happening in this brew. Would have again and definitely recommend.

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!

An acceptable example of a Doppelbock, there are surely better ones out there. Good amber-red color and decent aroma. Thin tan head that disappears quickly. Taste is smooth, malty, light and a bit thin. Flavor fades quickly. Alcohol is there but does not take over.

Somewhat of a strong malt aroma. Light brown to copper in color. Very clear in appearance,with moderate carbonation and a slight head. Very easy going down, no bitterness or aftertaste. A very smooth overall mouthfeel. I consider this a good tasting beer with no harsh aftertaste. Will buy again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
