4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Oh what a silky smooth double bock; worthy of induction into the AW BHoF! This brew poured up a rich mahogany-colored body with a one-finger off-white bubbly head that dissipated quickly but left amazing lacing effects on the glass. Aromas caramel, toasted malts, warm biscuits (Hungry Jack style), cocoa powder (like Nestles Quik) and a light hint of espresso. Flavors of the same but oh so wonderfully balanced. Medium-bodied, lightly carbonated, and goes down real smooth with no bitter aftertastes. Easy to drink so keep an eye on how many you have had!

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours mahogany red with a thin tan head mostly lasting. Nose is caramel. Very creamy on the palate. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, light molasses, The 8% ABV is well hidden but does warm one’s innards. Nice clean sweet aftertaste. An excellent double bock which stands as a banquet unto itself and pairs magnificently with mussels or smoked Pacific salmon.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled a bottle at the Bayou in SLC.
Dark ruby/crimson brew, with a thin head with little clumpy islands in the center of my glass.
Dark caramel malts well balanced out by a firm alcoholic nose.
Carbonation is vivid and prickly, taste is quite similar to the smell, with the caramel just enough in the forefront to subdue the alcohol heat, which in turn brings all the flavors together. After drinking that many low ABV Beers, the mouthfeel on this one was quite powerful and I enjoyed it a lot.

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 that’s just it, it’s 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.
