Poured brown/mahogany in color with a small, loose, tan head that diminished but lasted around the edges, barely. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of nuts, cocoa, light malts, light dark ripe fruits, light caramel, light walnut, light hazelnut, light figs, and a hint of brown sugar. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Toasted caramel, nut, and light fig finish. 8-9%ABV is totally hidden.

Tap at Wilmington. Aroma of leafy hops, bready malt. Flavor sweet, bordering on syrupy, sweet fruits, less rich malt. Too sweet and otherwise drab.

Darker brown color with a sweet aroma dominated by burnt brown sugar, raisins, roast, and maple syrup. Flavor is syrupy sweet with some roast, spice, dark fruit, and lots more sweetness. Tasty - more dessert beer than most D-bocks, but I like it that way.

On tap at the Wilmington location. Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet, bready malt. Flavor of some bready malt, apple juice, maple syrup, soda-like. Mostly sweet. Odd tasting though, with a syrupy mouthfeel. This one just didnt agree with me, and normally I am a fan of doppelbocks. 6/4/6/3/13 (3.2/5)

Goodgrief (2022) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Fantastic. Thanks to eaglefan538 for picking up a growler for our Wildcard Sunday football enjoyment. Pour was dark, murky with one finger tan head. Faint aroma of grape and other fruit. The flavor was wonderfully complex, grape fruity malt dominated with some wood notes, chocolate and just a touch of acidity. Sweet and bold without being overwhelming. A wonderful concoction of flavors. Nice.

A nicely blended, sweet brew. Had some from a growler of this thanks to Adrian. What a big range of beers Iron Hill makes.

JAXSON (604) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Draft at Iron Hill North Wales. Pours a clear dark brown with almost reddish highlights. Small head. Aroma is really sweet, powdered chocolate, with a whiff of some milder european hops. Malty, rich flavor, mildly bitter. I*d like to be able to start recognizing the kinds of hops used in a beer. Kind of thin in the mouth. Rich and enjoyable, not really favorite style but a good take.

Dark brown with amber highlights. Small beige head with aroam of roasted malts and dark fruit. Flavor of roasted malts, dark fruit and alcohol. Very nice though just a bit hot.

On draft at the NW location. Pours a dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruit and tree bark. Taste of roasted malts, dates, figs, prunes with hints of bread dough and tree bark.
