3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Spicy earthy nose with bakers chocolate and roast malt. Pours a dark chestnut and holds a thick white creamy head. Full creamy body. Dark malts meld seemlessly with muted coppery hops to deliver a very clean and flavorful lager. Certainly a benchmark for the dunkel style. These are dangerously drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: December 5, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Celebrator doppelbock pokal... OCCASION: easing out of the annual Sheridans’ Christmas party... APPEARANCE: cola black body; off-white, fizzy half-finger head that settles to a reasonable ring; lacing is sweeping in arches... AROMA: sweet hints of chocolate and peat; slight roasted elements; hops are light and floral... PALATE: medium-bodied, smooth and mellow in its intensity; a late weight holds the throat; otherwise, oily and dry...TASTE: the taste profile is agreeable in its mellowness, with the sweet malts pleasing in its chocolate and candied sugars--as such, the balance in hops keeps the experience from being one-sided, and the light, aromatic hops welcome the next sip... OVERALL: a sessionable accompaniment to an evening, as either a nightcap or a main course...smooth enough to swig, but just flavorful enough to slow it all down...
