3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 Bottle. Pours a foggy reddish brown with a nice brown head that retreats to the edges quickly. Clean, fresh aroma with dark fruit, hinted sweetness, and floral subtleties. Really nice, but needs to be bigger. Taste has brown sugar, light spices, more dark fruit. Slight oxidation. Finishes clean with some woodiness. Texture of this beer was thick but soft and forgiving. Well done, and I don’t even like the style much.

Tap at the brewpub in Downingtown, PA. Half pint. Commomshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche in the house. Darker amber and brown cola coloring. Nose is soft caramel and toffee with a slight toasted nutty quality. Taste is on the sweeter end initially with a burnt sugar and caramel feel. Medium body with an alcohol punch without burning the doppel bock. Bready with some roasty malt notes. It’s pretty decent...definitely come out victorious in some minor PA battles.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Dark ruby hued pour with a thin head. Soft fruity, caramel sweet aroma and complex dark malts in the nose. Carbonation is moderate, creaming up on the palate. Thick mouthfeel, with lots of malty character. Complex flavors of raisin, grape, ebbing blends of caramel and chocolate. Sharpish citric-like flavor that strikes from under the malt and then retreats. Wonderfully rich burnt caramel, toffee, and grape flavors become very pronounced as the beer warms. Sweet bready taste that lingers. To date, this is the best beer I’ve ever tasted. Phenomenal American stab at the style.
