3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with a beautiful copper hue. The head is tan with a decent size, but rather poor retention.
Aroma: Burnt caramel comes to mind first with a hint of fruit that I can not pinpoint.
Taste: Taste of burnt malts is throughout with caramel, and fruity notes that get stronger by the finish of either red apple or raspberry. The finish is quick and dry.
Palate: Medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is decent, but the burnt flavors overpower the rest.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Thirsty Monk. Dark copper color, with a small, beige head. Caramel, syrup, earthy hops, and some pine. Faint notes of smoked meats. Very sweet at first, with a rather forward hop bite toward the finish. The result is a nicely balanced, sweet, bitter, and spicy flavor. Medium to heavy body, with a lively mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good American Doppelbock. Nicely hopped, without overwhelming the malts.
