Pours a clear dark amber, with a soapy, lasting lace - aroma of chocolate, raisin, fig, caramel - the flavor is caramel sweet, with some spicy hops and peppery alcohol heat - somewhat creamy mouthfeel - some raisin and cherry - a bit of sherryish character - finishes with some whiskey-like notes - fairly easy drinking for its strength - one of the better high grav brews from this brewer.

Enjoyed on-tap at Brother Tucker’s, Pompano Beach. Beautiful white lace on chocolate colour. Chocolate malt, rich taste. Like a good Old Ale style.Tasty stuff.Way Above average mouthfeel. Satisfying finish. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Sampled thanks to sixfootsix. Pours a clear amber brown with small ring of khaki head. Nose of alcohol and raisins. Definitely ’hot’ smelling. But the alcohol is just flavorful, not hot, with a nice peatiness to it. A little average as far as dopplebocks go. Awesome label art though. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2009
On tap at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a dark ruby red color, with thin white lacing and a wispy head. Citrus nose, some creamy vanilla, slight chocolate, very distant roast. Flavor has sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, vanilla, and a decent bitter finish. Smooth, medium-bodied, balanced, and tasty. drfabulous (8224) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Pours a reddish color. Hint of caramel and food coloring. Hoppy. Hebrew does lagers better than most folks. I’m drinking it and I don’t usually drink a lager. Nice.

Bottle from the Coop in Davis, CA. Dark copper color with a slight white head. Aroma of rich caramel with fruit notes. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor is rich caramel malt and some dark fruit and wood hints. Bready. Quite full and tasty. No skimping on ingredients. Finishes polished and smooth with floral hop. Alcohol is quite subdued. Could be tricky! elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bomber, shared with Garrett. Pours clear amber brown with a foamy, small head. Aroma of esters, and a bit of bubble gum candy. Flavor flavor has toastiness, dark fruit, malt, wood, and bread. Finishes slightly ash-bitter, with some alcohol bite. thejon375 (414) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Decent beer with roasted pineapple and mango flavors. Rich amber color and nice dark tan head. Good beer to start the evening. Palidor19 (3190) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2009
has got a nice flavor of pineapple and some mild tropical fruit. taste is strong but has some other flavors with light malts with many fruity flavors. not too bad on the hop front with some flowery hop after taste. recommended. nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2009
The aroma is a touch like hemp, caramel malt, citrus, pine and tropical fruit. The appearance is rich amber with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer.
