22 oz bomber. Pours a dull rusty amber pour with a medium white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of toffee, caramel, birch syrup, cane sugar. Flavor is sweet, sticky, lots of caramel and syrup. Brown sugar, maple syrup, mild raw sugar. The beer is balanced by a slight roastiness and a touch of roastiness from the malt. Full bodied, touch of alcohol towards the finish. Overall, a nice beer that’s a bit too sweet for me.

Very smooth beer. Slightly cloudy but dark copper in color. Residual sweetness from the birtch syrup is very pleasant. Great winter beer. I love the beers from this pilot series. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I agree with Hopscotch. Candied dates really good. This is first rate stuff. Aroma is awesome. Crystal clear copper. Back ground bitterness. Big sweet beer.

An interesting take on a doppelbock. Definite sweetness from the birch syrup, but not overpowering. I’d happily drink another.

Normally not a fan of doppelbock. Not that I find it to be bad, but usually just more of a boring style in general. That said, this was a nice suprise. The birch syrup is a very nice touch. Very well executed, this is. Would purchase again.

Bottle; Pour is murky dark golden amber with a modest fine bubbled khaki head in this dimpled mug; This is a brew that is slightly nutty on the nose; there is some sweet bread - and the syrup comes through - Dunno if I’ve had birch syrup before. Out of the gate there is a hint of metallic - there are more bready malts, more caramel sweetness with a bit of nuttiness ; the birch syrup is fairly heavy - this one is perhaps overly sweet; thankfully I have a sweet tooth here.

Copper pour with big eggy head. Tons of carbonation . Nose is strongly of birch syrup .great head retention and appearance Sweet syrup front, sweet and nutty malts to a bitter finish. The transition from front to back is a little too rapid. A decent doppel but too sweet for me.
