Clear brown body, moderate head, decent lacing. Aroma is raisins, bread, caramel, hint of molasses and rum. Flavor brings this, quite sweet. Light syrupyness. Enjoyable and balanced, but could be more interesting.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Got this months ago at Somerville. Aroma very raisiny light toasty malts. Poured a cola like brown. Flavor nice, brown sugar,raisin, light maple taste. Palate, good but had this been just a thicker I’d be even happier. Altogether though tasty. A solid beer like many other German offerings that says have 10 more.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(06.29.06) Bottle as gift from Tom D. 7.2% ABV. Poured hazy brown with small off-white head. Good carbonation. Sweet fruit (ripe plum) malty aroma. Medium to full bodied doppelbock that starts with moderate sweetness and toasted, earthy, plum flavors, reminiscent of a typical Belgium ale but without the funky sourness. Finished with a light malt fade. A very good interesting beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is fabulous. It has tons of brown sugar with raisins, alcohol, and maple. The appearance is red-brown with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma but with nutty and toasty elements. The palate is somewhat smooth due to the carbonation but still thin. The finish is a little warm from alcohol and bitter in an astringent way. Overall it’s nice but the finish is not good.
