COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brew Masters Private Reserve is an exceptionally rich beer that is a symphony of character, featuring a balanced hop aroma with 8.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV). Based on the time-honored Budweiser brewmaster holiday tradition of collecting the richest first part of the brew as it is tapped to the brew kettles to celebrate the season, this is the first time it is being made available to the public.

Bottled. An amber-orange beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet with nots of caramel, nuts, and alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Yo, my buddy and I snagged a handle of this from our local brewery. I threw mine in a pint glass, from which I could clearly distinguish the faint aroma of toffee, caramel, and Land-O-Lakes butta. The taste was smooth, yet somewhat refined. My main man demonstrated this refinement by pouring his into a ceramic teacup and "raising the roof" at the same time he rose his pinky finger. There was a definite aftertaste, similar to when you get a bit o grass in yo Milwaukees Best 40-ounce. The most gnarly feature of this particular brew is the massive champagne bottle that shes packaged in. This is definitely taking "center-stage" on my beer wall, next to the half-empty bottle of generic tequila and alcoholic energy drinks. The 8.5% is starting to kick in now, so I better finish this up before I have to drive ho.........

2007 vintage 750mLish at Ale Atlanta. Awesome. Ive been wanting to try this for a while, but I didnt want to spend any money on it. Amber color. Malty aroma. Hint of alcohol. Lightly sweet. Not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Should be rated blind to be fair. Decent.

I paid almost $22 for this 1qt 14.5 fl oz bottle at a liquor store Roseville, MI. Pours hazy tan-yellow with a very nice soft fluffy head. Smells of caramel, molasses, and corn syrup. Tastes of caramel, honey, molasses, and some grassy hops. Very nice creamy, sticky mouthfeel, and nicely carbonated. A slow warming alcohol. Very rich bock flavor. Tastes very German. Was this beer worth the price I paid?...not really. Is it worth trying?...Absolutely.

caramel tastes with plum, fig and prune in this farmfresh malt brew. 2007 year the beer is basically brown and is refreshing with little sense of alcohol. nice appropriate sweetness this beer as one might expect is not overdone yet the total package is complex enough to intrigue. a totally interesting and tasteful doppel i am mildly surprised. thank you Vincent.

(12oz bottle) clear deep copper, ring of white bubbles. Nose of light metal, rich caramel and dark fruits. Taste is toasty, grain, caramel, light oxidation, soft carbonation, a bit of an old linger but actually good overall!

Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Vintage 2007 - what a treat. Pours clear amber with a light, tan cream head. Nicely oxidised in the aroma, with present caramel and bread. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, caramel, aged fruits, figs, dates. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary, syrupy finish with more oxidation, toasted grainy bread, leathery fruits, dates, berries. Pretty solid on the whole.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 If all Budweiser was like this, it would certainly garner more respect in the beer world. Slightly darker then a normal bud this has a longer lasting head as well. The taste is similar to Budweiser, but with a creamier feel. AS it warms the alcohol seems to dominate the taste a bit.

I think this is the wrong beer becuase this is 2007s version and it is a dopplebock, not a malt liquor. This pours out a light brown color with a fairly thin tan head. Aroma isnt too bad a bit of caramel sweetness and toffee up in there. Taste is fairly sweet of caramel and perhaps brown sugar. I have to say, this isnt a half bad beer and I cant believe this came from Anheuser-Busch.
