3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 Bottle. Pours an amber copper color. Aroma is caramel and malt. Flavor is the same, alcohol not really noticeable. Pretty damn good for Utah.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A cold temp pour produces a caramel amber color with very little head and lace. Strong malty sweet aromas of carameled busicuits. Full nectar with ample soft residual effer. A big malty sweet nectar devoures my taste buds with it’s palate driven intensity. Cherry, peachy stone fruit, molasses, mildly stewed nut shells, and French toast. The finish is bittered with a bit of acidity with a lingering sweetness yet not cloying.

Pours copper, with an off white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, and some fruit. Flavor is caramel, malt, fruit, and some nuts as well. Some bitterness in the finish. Thanks to footbalm for this bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from douglas88. The label on this is pretty priceless. Someone really doesn’t like mormons. Clear brown with red tint. Nice flavor of toasted almond, malt, wheat. Nutty caramel aroma. Malt flavors fade and finishes with a slight hop bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from footbalm. Thanks Eric. Pours a bright copper amber with a a nice off-white head and lace. Nose is indeed big with sweet malts, yeast, and some plum, apples, and peaches. Taste is more sweet fruity flavor, a definite alcohol presence, amidst chewy malts and little hop bitterness. Pretty darn good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 I was delighted to find this at one of the franchise liquor stores in a small town in the middle of Utah. To my palate, nice balance, slight sweetness, reasonable hop, good mouth feel. I don’t think this rating is based solely on finding civilization in an unexpected place. UPDATE 6 YEARS LATER. This is a remarkably simple Dopplebock. It is very, very, sweet, almost sugar simple, with light caramelization, then burnt tones, from the malts, with minimal malt complexity. It really is about a 2.5 or a 25 depending on the rating system used.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... March 08 Tampa Bay Tasting... Clear, dark copper lager with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic, never-ending retention. Lactic, vinous nose with prominent, awkward, berry essences. Full-bodied and creamy with ticklish carbonation. Sweet, fruity flavor delivers a truckload of unidentified berries with plenty of alcohol warmth and bitterness. Moderately bitter, boozy finish. Strange brew... maybe past its prime.

Bottle courtesy of douglas88. Pours mahogany with a white head. Smells of spice, caramel, some nutty hints. Tastes of chocolate, caramel, lots of sweet touches. Nice!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Well, I thought this was a pretty decent beer, after the very first sip, which is a bit too alcoholic. Then a nice coaty roastiness comes in. Solid.

Thanks to Douglas88 for seeing this and picking it up. the label... oh what blasphemy to have this label on a beer in Utah. The beer itself is clear amber/copper with a sweet malty profile. It just isn’t defined enough. But still a good beer for Utah.
