Bottle courtesy of beachbum25. Pours ruby red with a thin white head. Smells of tarte cherries, vegetal, some sweet malt, roses. Tastes of molasses, spice, some sweet malt, touches of cinnamon. Good! ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2008

Smell: Huh, pretty mild aroma here. Slight notes of dark malt, smoke, berries, and spearmint.
Taste: Sweetish dark maltiness with a hint of dark caramel and chocolate. Touch of smoke. Berry fruitiness. Sweetish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Kinda basic, at best. Aptly named, I must say! decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2008
A dark amber almost brown pour. A raisen aroma and light malt. A pretty nice flavorful beer thaat is pretty close to style. Full bodied and good carbonation. Overall good beer that I enjoyed.

Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a thin, spotty-lacing light tan head. Mild aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel malts and a touch of German hops. Body starts lightly sweet and caramely malty with some doughy yeast and a thinner, mildly warming finish. Doesn’t quite have the fullness of a true doppelbock, but is pretty smooth and drinkable. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours a deep amber color with an off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, toffee, roast, and brown sugar. Flavor is malty, caramel, toffee, roast, and a sugary finish. Goodgrief (2022) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 12, 2008
Dec. 2007 - Dark brown pour with decent head and lacing. Strong aroma of chocolate malt balls...you know those "Whoppers" things that your grandma used to eat when you were a kid. The flavor was strong and rich...chocolate malt balls, some roasty smoke and some bitterness. Bordering on too sweet, but a nice wintertime beer. Like the Railbender, this is interesting. I must seek out more of these Erie beers...they’re anything but bland and boring. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
12oz bottle, no date. Clear brownish red with a 1/2 finger quickly fading beige head. Sweet caramel, earthy hops, and alcohol are basically the aroma. Wait, there is a hint of chocolate. Flavor is caramel and raisins up front, a bit of chocolate again, alcohol (not detracting or hot in this case), and a semi-dry finish with bitterness peaking at a 2. Very low carbonation with a medium body. I like the style, so I think this got an extra point or two.
