bottle. i guess i don’t get the doppelbock in this one. it seems more like a dark lager to me. dark brown color, nice foamy head. caramel and nuts and a hint of hops.
Pours a dark reddish brown. Nice one and half finger khaki head. Pretty good retention, light lacing.Beerdedone (3390) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Aroma is medium/dark roasted malts. Has cherries, raisins and other fruits like that. Also a touch of cocoa and caramel.
Taste is almost exactly the same as the aroma. Nice dark roasted malt sweetness. Lots of dark fruits like cherries and raisins in the flavor. Good cocoa and caramel in there too.
Mouthfeel is medium body. It’s very smooth, no bitterness at all, no alcohol taste. Perhaps a touch sour on the swallow.
Overall, this is quite delicious. Wish it were higher ABV, but the flavor is very good. I would drink this again, and I also would recommend it. Yummy!
bottle. Pours dark brown with an average beige head. Aroma of sweet toasted malts, caramel and light brown sugar. Flavor of toasted malts, caramel, subtle dark fruit, raisins and brown sugar. BREWMUSKCLES (2671) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2016
its good beer. some caramel and a substantial body with a bit of syrup. beery with a hint of hop and moderate malt perhaps liquid but good. nice cold on this hot afternoon the beer is satisfying. alcohol easy with the caramel. stevoj (4953) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle from Albertsons. Decent looking pour, dark, clear brown with a soft foamy beige head. Sweet, nutty aroma and taste, but kind of watered down. Finishes sweet, like a root beer barrel candy, and painfully dry. p0rkch0p (116) - Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Color is like a melted ice coke. Also the taste isnt too far from a sweet watery cola. Deserves better than the low overall rating. Leinies are fine brews, hate that the big name brings then down from the beer snobs. Not my favorite style but there is absolutely nothing wrong with this very drinkable treat. Perfect for a sampler.
foyle (421) - Wyoming, USA - APR 29, 2016
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass
Appearance: a 1" pillowy cream colored head falls quickly with a minute amount of lacing. Color is clear reddish-brown with moderate streaming bubbles.
Aroma: very malt forward -- barley sweetness and ripe fruit, with earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, prickly carbonation with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: rich roasted malt flavor, chocolate, caramel, dates, raisins, earthy and herbal hops.
Overall: pleasant and drinkable, maybe a tad too much carbonation. rougeau13 (2954) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle from Kroger. Clear brown with amber highlights and a big resilient cream colored or beige head with light spotty lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, and bread. Taste is toasty and thin and lightly sweet. Slick, light-medium bodied, and a touch dry. Gription79 (2886) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 10, 2016
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There are big sugary notes, brown sugar, burnt sugar. Toasted maltiness, dark stone fruits, raisins, prunes. Thin bodied. SanfordBrewer (1572) - Sanford, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2016
translucent mahogany with thin beige head. full body with high carbonation.donw68 (7) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2016 does not count
aroma: bready malt, slight caramel, subtle roast malt, fruity esters (especially cherry nail polish remove note from ethyl acetate), leafy hops.
taste: bready malt, bread crust, leafy hops, dark dried fruits, odd stale grain (6 row?) and metallic iron (rust or blood) finish.
Roasted malt aroma. Smooth malty taste. Goes down easy. Nice brew. Probably the better offering from Leinie.
