3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours thick murky dark brown with no head (by the time I got to it in the flight...). Aroma is malty. Brown sugar and caramel and malt. Taste is sweet caramel and malts up front with hints of coffee at the end. A great beer that I would get again.
Nice acidic mouth feel that builds a mocha soft chocolate on the palate. A little bitterness is very faint in the back of your mouth.

Draft. Pours black. Aroma and taste are sweet caramel, and malty biscuits.. djd07 (15330) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with small off white head. The aroma is roast and caramel. Thin mouth spice, roasted malt, light bitter finish, good. TizzleJizzle (792) - Garland, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2015
12 oz bottle. Poured an opaque dark brown/black with a frothy tan head and phenomenal lacing. Taste of brown sugar, vanilla, caramel with a slight dark chocolate bitterness finish. Fizzy carbonation, medium-full body, creamy texture. Overall, the alcohol is hidden well and the flavor is there, but it’s too faint for me and not as prominent as I’d like it to be.

Bottle - smells roasty and of bread. Sip adds metal and caramel with a slight grassiness. Really sweet with dark chocolate bitterness. Not what I would call a doppelbock. A little harsh.

Thanks drowland! Not a great beer. Weird metallic taste and a lot of caramel sweetness. Not much else. Not much nuance. Oh well. drowland (8932) - Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2015
6/26/15. 12oz bottle my dad brought down! Very dark brown pour with a small tan head, mild lacing. Huge metallic aroma, dusty, husky grains, toasted caramel. Bitter flavor, metallic, caramel, nutty, toasted caramel. Meh. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Missed my flight from Grand Rapids to Chicago because of the dumbass Chicago weather and so spent the night in the airport and pulled this out of my suitcase to drink with some Chex Mix. From the bottle, and so can’t tell what it looks like. Smells really malty with lots of caramel and toffee. Alcohol is noticeable. Decent beer. zoucrew102 (2046) - - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle. Rich caramel malt aroma with notes of toffee and some nuttiness. Pours caramel brown with a thin tan head and decent lacing. Starts with huge caramel malt sweetness with hints of nuts and toffee. Finishes smooth with the caramel sweetness carrying throughout with a slight bock bite at the end before it gets washed away with the sticky caramel that clings to the palate. Nice doppelbock. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Great doppel with a high alcohol. Black as night but hasa sweet caramel side that makes it pleasing.
