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.

12 Oz. Bottle. Nice and malty. Seemed a little thin at first for a dopplebock. Flavor and aroma improved with time-out-of-bottle.

3.7 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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
