2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A yeasty dark strong lager with noticeably unclean fermentation: metal, mold, higher alcohols, dark caramel malt, cola, plum and apple hooch, vegetables / canned corn / DMS. Solvent and oily alcohol on the palate. Sweet and chalky with a limp, watery body. Shamefully bad!

Clear dark amber with a foamy off-beige head. The aroma is sweet and dark with chewy doughiness and toast. The flavor is just as bready and toast, with a lager-biscuitiness, dark sweet grain malts, and toasted muffin.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Born on date of 4/13/2013. Dark copper color with fast vanishing white head. Aroma is malts, dark fruits, syrupy chocolate, and a touch of earth. Mouth feel is on the lighter side (very thin) Soft steady carbonation. Flavors are good yet not as good as the true German Dopplebocks. Still all in all, very drinkable and true to the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from AJ’s fine foods Scottsdale. Pours brown with no head to speak of. Not much on the nose. A bit of malty sweetness on the tongue. Hides the alcohol well. Eh!
