3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours a stunning clear amber with thin tan head. The aroma is big and nutty with some roasty to biscuit malts joining in for good measure. The taste is much the same with a nutty almond – filbert – hazel nut nuttiness that is rich and goes deep into the experience. Behind that I get medium roasted malts and some biscuit. I find that the malty nutty sweetness builds up beyond a level I find comfortable with. Just becomes overly too sweet for me.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Born on: 03/24/11.
It pours a lighter reddish brown with a foamy off-white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing.
Smell is weaker and more like a brown ale than a doppelbock.
The flavor is also more reminiscent of an ale than a lager. It is roasty and chocolatey, far too much to be considered a doppebock.
It is an okay american dark lager.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Dirty caramel, a little dark, moderate sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing. Sweet bready nose, a little fruity in the raisin/date sense. Molasses, raisins, a little ginger and general breadiness on the tongue. As it warms, the spiciness comes out a bit more on the nose. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. This one has a lot of the flavor, without the huge hefty breadiness that sometimes detracts. Slight graininess shows up on the backside, but its not too strong. Overall nice sweetness, bready but not overly done, with some dark pitted fruit notes. This one was rather nice!   Minor Gingerbread notes sealed it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ BBF: Pours an amber color with white head. The nose is rich and full with lots of raisins, fig and cherry along with a gamut of dark caramels and light dried fruits. The flavor is balanced though with an earthy dry body and a light twang of hops in the tail. Nice doppelbock, unassuming from Utah!

Bottle at Squatter’s in SLC airport. Nice pour. Mahogany brown with a tight head. The aroma is full of rich malt. Indeed this drinks with a full-up caramel kick, strong and rich, particularly for a Utah brew. Good! (#3623, 8/31/2009)
