3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Hyatt Escala resturant in Park City. Smell was malty with sweetness. Taste was caramel, malt and smoke. Same sweet taste as the smell. Odd thing is that they have the beer on display at the bar, but thatís just it, itís on display, they have to go elsewhere and actually get it. Weird. But this was a nice beer. Enjoyed it with s-mores with the family while sitting by fire outside.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fairly malty aroma and dark brown pour. Taste is light on the front end then drops a thick malt bomb that turns creamy as it finishes, like a porter. Hops are almost undetectable. Not very complex but well done for what it is. A bit heavy and malty for my tastes.

Bottle. Aroma was caramel and then an unpleasant sweatiness that marked it down . Dark red brown colour with white head. light lacing. Lovely flavour, caramel and toast. Some hop in the finish to prevent it from getting too sweet.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz single from "Lifesource" Salem. $1.99
Pours a clear light brown,small light tan head..goes fast leaves loads of lace.
Aroma is a lot moe subdued than i expected what there is is of course caramel malts and raisins
Smooth toasty,caramel,fudge maltiness in the taste, rather simple and no real depth, has alcohol present in the end.
Pretty thin for the style on the palate.
Overall not impressed..this seems to me like maybe a regular dark bock not a dopplebock
