Bottle thanks to BlackIPA. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose/taste of caramel malt, roasted pecan toast, clove, toffee, hay, grass and light molasses. Finishes clove/molasses. Medium body. brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
A: The pour is a mahogany color with a finger of khaki colored head.
S: Nice dark fruits on the nose up front which provides a fair amount of the sweetness, the rest of it coming from caramel maltiness. A little bit of toasted malt and a sort of surprising amount of roast.
T: More caramel and toffee malt type sweetness on the flavor. Still some dark fruit notes, but not as pronounced as on the nose. Some breadiness is there as well. A bit of alcohol, unfortunately.
M: Medium in body and carbonation.
O: This wasn’t the best doppelbock, which is sort of surprising because the Great Lakes lagers I’ve had have generally been quite good. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle in Hotel Room, Chicago. Clear dark brown - offwhite head. High malty. Chocolate. Cocoa. Nutty. Berries. Light fruity notes. Dark bread. Light bitterness. Pleasant. bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours darkish amber with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Aromas of dark malt, dark fruit, and maybe noble hop. It’s malty, but not syrupy. Rather brown sugar, but there’s some herb/noble hop that cuts into the sweetness. Sufficiently so that the malt flavor is available without alot of sweet. Drinks very nicely.
