3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2015 Bottle. Pous a golden brown with a lite head. A lot of caramel and toffee on the nose; those notes carry through on the palate with a definite cinnamon brown sugar overtone. Holds its alcohol well. It ain’t Ayinger, but it’s decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours light ruby brown with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is toasted bready malts with a little fruit.
The flavor is sweet toasted chocolate and caramel nutty malts with some fruit and a little smokiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice doppelbock. A bit too sweet for me.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A malt forward aroma with hints of dark fruit. A translucent dark brown pour with a mostly none existent off-white head. Taste is sweet with some toasted malt and bready notes. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, not the taste bomb some double blocks are, but very drinkable and enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 12oz bottle.
Clear amber brew, slight beige head. Aroma is slightly nutty, malty, and some spice (cinnamon?). A bit thin, missing the creamy mouthfeel you usually find in a Doppelbock. Caramel malt with some sweetness and hop bite.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single from the pub store. Clear dark copper, medium head. Strangely stewed aroma. Very sweet malt taste, almost syrupy. Heavy body, yet has the feel of a soft drink. Not what I was expecting at all.
