bottle, a year or two old, i forget. reddish brown colour, some cocoa, fish sauce and caramel in the aroma. still a big hit of alcohol, not that much bitterness, some stone fruits, passable

Bottle. OK, obvious ale yeast. Toffee, apple, soy, caramel, bit sticky, with some noticeable alcohol. Not a favoured style, but it was OK.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A sweet chocolaty buttery nose. SMOOTH buttery toffee palate leading into the warming toffee finish, excellent!

Dark red pour with some lace. Candied nose. Sweet caramel flavors. It's a doppelbock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep redish amber color, clear, with a thin white head that left before I got to it on the sample tray. Little aroma, very sweet, with fruity esthers. Wish I knew the ABV on this one, seemed fairly high, but hard to tell as it was pretty well masked.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost no aroma to this. deep ruby color. Flavor is rich with fruits and hops. A citrus ester was in deep in the flavor but jumped out at me in the end.

This is only available off tap I believe, at the brewpub. Starts with a nice clean and semi sweet flavor, but by the time I got to the bottom of the glass, I was having to work just to get the stuff down. Darker than I would expect, but something just didn’t line up right for this beer.
