3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got something slighty funky on the first sniff. Other sniffs found a slightly roasty aroma. Initially sweet but quickly dries out due to the bitterness. Aso a burnt caramel flavor with a slight sourness.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is an amber cherry color. When I first poured it into my friends glass the head came out little to none. Then I decided to just dump it into my glass and got a little head but it disapeared rather quickly. Itís light and refreshing and I enjoy the taste it leaves on my tounge. The aromaís that Iím getting are "earthly" smelling I had a difficult time pin pointing specific aromas. Beyond that itís a nice beer definetly good for spring. Enjoy.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of roasted sweet honey hops. Pour is dark with a beige head. Taste is very roasty with a sweet undertaste and the presence of flowery hops. The carbonation is not too overwhelming which leaves room for the taste. Finishes very smooth.

One of my favorites. Amber caramel color with a sweet malty start that finishes with a lingering bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear red-amber with a thin tan head that fades quickly. Lots of bubbles. Aroma is of bread and cinnamon. Very inviting. Taste is sweet and alcoholic. Some bread notes. After the incredible aroma, Iím a bit disappointed by the watery flavor of this beer. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, lasting, and smooth. Decent.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark but transparent brown- obviously not bottle conditioned. Good carbonation with an off-white head that fades quickly. Smells sweet, maybe a little bready or something along those lines. Smell is also a little smokey perhaps? Taste is superb. Plenty of malts, plenty of substance, hints of smoke, some fruitiness, and a well balanced spice note. Mouthfeel is thick, exactly what I want and surpassing my expectations for the style. Very impressed with this offering- Victory does a great set of brews and this is one of my favorites. Too bad they refuse to distribute it here...

this is definately a smooth and tasty dopplebock for 8.5%. barely noticeable alcohol. very drinkable, not too sweet (for a change) just right. wish i could keep this around all the time...but i guess i gotta wait till next spring. oh well...itíll be worth it!!
