2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark brown.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, molasses), with a note of brown sugar.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Well, obviously zero effort went into this...it just smells like sugar water, like Coke more or less. Syrupy sweet in the mouth, again like soda (with alcohol added). Might as well be put in the American Dark category, ’cause it’s a long, long way from an actual German Doppelbock.

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!

Pours a light brown color with an aroma of dark fruit, toffee, and bread. Dark fruit sweet flavor with toffee and bread. Light body and slightly weak flavor as a result. Good beer nonetheless.

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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle poured a clear reddish-brown hue w/ medium white head fully diminishing and nice lacing. Moderate sweet malty aromas. Initial flavor is bold sweet and a light bitter finish. Tastes are brown sugar, toasted malt, and toast. Medium bodied, avg carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel, and sweet w/ some warmth in the finish but not enough to cut thru the sweetness. It is a beer soda pop.
