If you’re going to sin, sin big. With 8% alc/vol and a creamy richness, this brew has developed a serious cult following. Imagine that – a cult following in Utah?!
Food Pairings: Front of cow, back of cow, rattlesnake.

Pours a dark Amber. Nice sweet malty aromas. Raisin aromas too. Flavours are very sweet. Sweet fall fruits and some Booze flavour to round it out. Not bad.

skoisirius (1716) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Sweet malty nose, touch of booze. Flavors are generally carmel, malts, and hints of apple. Bit boozey on the finish. VERY drinkable for 8%!

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle (marked 11/02/12) that I picked up Superbowl 2013 weekend in Las Vegas (kept refrigerated since then). Large amount of yeast sediment noticed at the bottom of the bottle. Pours with a very mild haze over a deep bronze hued body with a thin head, poor retention and mild lace. Aromas are of melanoidins, grape nuts and an odd fruitiness that I cannot place. Cornbread and light leather. Flavors are of oxidation, cardboard, raisins, medium strong malt. Lasting leather. Low bitterness but some lasting in the duration. A bit husky, light alcohol. Suntan lotion. Some munich like toasted malt notes. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Sweet beer with a clean/crisp finish. I’ll assume that the date on the bottle is a best by and not a brewed on...

This is a very drinkable 8 percent. Sweet, but not overly so, and definitely not as syrupy as some doppelbocks.

12oz bottle. Aroma is of dark fruit and some darker malt. Appearance is a darker brown. Taste is basically a brown ale that has a lager yeast. Good roastiness. Palate is pretty decent. Overall, a decent beer. Would rather an actual brown though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at the Hey Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Mahogony brown with a medium light tan head which retains well. Nose is dark toffee, dark fruit, malty, sugars, light boozey notes. Taste comprises dark toffee, a little booze, dates, raisens, dark malts, toasted brown bread. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet boozey finish with a pinch of spice. A good take on the style !

jkwood04 (3950) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 9, 2013
12oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours brown with a light beige head. Aroma of caramel and nutty malts with hints of toffee and chocolate plus light hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, but not the best of the style.

thornecb (4402) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Pours bright mahogany into a stem glass. Off white head recedes leaving no lacing to coat surface. Plum and chocolate aromas. Soft with chocolate-covered pit fruit front to back. Thin lasting dusty finish.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cool. Aroma: Hazelnut, cocoa, basically this smells like Ferrero Rochers smell. Awesome stuff! Appearance: Translucent red/orange. Even with an aggressive pour, no real head. Taste: Hazelnut, coffee, dark, dark chocolate. Some fruit. A mild soy sauce-y flavor. Bittersweet. Palate: Rich. Medium body; nice presence, but not oppressive. Flavors linger a little bit. Overall: A lot better than what I was expecting! Really nice aroma and flavors going on here; not your typical caramel-y / malty doppelbock. The 8% abv creeps up on you! Really enjoyed this one.
