[bottle @ RBESG 2009, Grand Tasting]
Buttery horseblanket aroma with some sour plum. Hazy orange under a white cover and ring. Oaky vanilla sour malt flavour with a nice oaky finish. Faint bubblegum note. Smooth but with some sour oak. cgarvieuk (24515) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2009

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma with some hopy grapefruit hints. Sweetish malty caramel flavor with some hoppy hints and some tart hints. Has a fruity malty warming caramel finish with some hoppy hints in the aftertaste. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle at RBESG 09 Sheffield. Sour and hoppy. Big rubbery yeast aroma. Too sharp and acidic for me. Not much of a doppelbock. Decent sourness though. thebaldwizard (1207) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Shared at DLD by BBB63. Light caramel malt aroma. Medium brown body with light head. Medium palate. Grassy hops up front, followed by caramel malt and a hint of fruits. I thought the grassy element was too overpowering, and that took this beer down a few pegs for me.

This gowler from BBB63 on Dark Lord Day poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy no visible carbonation brown colored body. The weak aroma was malty. The thin mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of malt and sweet. A decent one that I would consider having again. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

cloudy orange, wispy head, light caramel aroma, sweet caramel malt flavor with lots of hop bitterness, either the growler is old or this beer is unbalanced and boring
Aroma: 4/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 4/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 8/20
Bottle at the RBESG09 Grand tasting, sheffield. Alround rating: Very yeasty and sweet, some rotten fruit character, fairly tart and bitter. Really difficult to drink.
