2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle with a different (newer?) label that says Craft BOOM Bohmerwald’s Majesty Double Bock Ale instead of Lager. Pours slightly hazy amber color with small off-white foamy head that disappeared instantly, faint caramel like aroma, low carbonation, cough syrup like taste with very prominent alcohol flavor, abrupt finish. Not a very good beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Boom! Bohmerwald’s Majesty has a thick, off-white head, a semi-clear, orange appearance, with lots of powdery, brown gritty substance suspended throughout, no bubble streams, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is sharp and overly sweet. One will pick up extra-sweet sugar, cellar-ed malts, turned fruit, old bread, and maybe just a touch of peppery rye. Taste is also very strong- beet sugar, beets, oak, some rye, old malt, a touch of hops, and lots of alcohol. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Bohmerwald’s Majesty finishes semi-dry, harsh, somewhat sip-able, and even drinkable (if one can stomach it). This is not good and should be avoided. But, it’s overall badness gives it a quaint quality. RJT

Bottle shared by Tmoney99 late Feb/early March 2012 from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, apples, brown sugar, hints of wood, caramel, metallic hints, weird, would not revisit.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nearly clear, light amber with a short, soap-white head.
Sweet, bready, apple malt aroma.
Taste is sweet...light fruit, rye malt, a bit rough alcohol presence.
A little oxidation...neck label has a 2011 banner....
Not too bad..but far too sweet.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
1/2 liter bottle - pours pale amber with offwhite head. Nose is boozy corn. Flavor adds caramel and eye-opening sugars - wow this is sweet. I was half awake, but now I want to eat a raw tiger’s heart. This will rip your face off. If I werne’t so preoccupied looking for a new career, I’d have better tangent including Dali paintings, The Hangover (1 or 2) references and Edgar Allan Poe literary allusions. Never again.

Bottle. Crystallized sugar/honey, barley malt, and barley malt aroma. Hazy amber with small head. Sweet honey, hay, barley malt, and light alcohol flavor. Nice body. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 500 ml
Aroma: frontal alcohol with sweet malts behind, secondary hop accents. Nice malty backing. Touch of Hungarian plum.
Apperance: poured as clear amber with nice light trough. lasting mid plus white top. Sparse lace with rings on glass.
Taste/Palate etc. Full bodied. Hefty malty base with sugars, but not cloying. Alcohol well covered up by malt. Oak accents very faint if none existent. Slight warmth at finish. Nice heftier brew.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Euro Market, Astoria, Queens bottle: pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma is gross malt liquor. Taste is fortunately better than the smell, but still has that kind of gross euro atrong lager thing going on in the finish. Ugh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gushed out medium amber color with a foamy head. Aromas bread, caramel, yeast and slight biscuit. Flavors sweet caramelized caramel, bread, toffee and light banana ester. Medium to high sweetness or desert like. I like this double bock.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Weirdo beer: Czech pale doppelbock with rye, beet sugar and oak. I can’t see how beet sugar would be any different than cane sugar once fermented.
I had this pegged early on as as something Eastern European rather than Central, and it is. High alcohol, not especially polished (not a malt bomb German doppelbock). But it isn’t unpleasant and is affordable. Who’s the Boom king?
