The beer has a decent color with a nice deep brown (almost plum) color with almost no head to it and even less lacing on the glass. Disppointing. The smell is a little weak but has mild notes of chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, raisin, and plum. The taste is decent with raisins, caramel, and roasted malts up front then gets followed up by chocolate, dark cherries, and coffee. The mouthfeel is disappointing with absolutely no carbonation and mild flavors lingering around. Overall, I could have possibly gotten a flat beer but this beer had potential (when carbonated) but it didnt come through in my bottle. LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle from Ed, thanks! Pour is a slightly hazy/muddy dark copper brown, with not much head, and no lacing. Nose is yeast, caramel and plum, light roast. Taste is much the same, with a bit more roastyness than the aroma betrays. Mouthfeel is slightly chalky and suffers from a lack of carbonation. overall, a decent beer that could have been much improved by increasing the carbonation level.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Skyview. Comes as: "Millstream 25th Anniversary Dopplebock". Pours a cloudy brown with hardly any head (probably due to a loose cap, the bottle had leaked during shipping). Lovely aroma of pumpernickel and nuts. Solid body with a great malt base, pumpernickel, nuts and molasses. Carbonation is low. Hardly any bitterness. 290911 yespr (46530) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2011

Pours a lightly hazy dark brown with a tiny, soapy tan head. Aroma is big on caramel, woody notes, roasted nuts, a little spice and dark fruits. Flavor is lightly roasty and toasted up front, lots of caramel, dark fruit, molasses, light hints of nuts and herbal hops. Finishes with toasted wood and black tea. Palate is medium bodied, creamy and a little syrupy throughout, with almost no carbonation. Pours a clear, dark brown with an almost non-existent soapy head. Aroma is caramel, sweet malt, light chocolate, sweet, toasted maple, dark caramel and molasses. Flavor is sweet malt, chocolate, light toasted nuts, syrupy chocolate and molasses snaps, ethanol, earth and (maple) woody notes and an earthy, medicinally bitter finish that seems to linger forever. Palate is pretty heavy in body, syrupy on entry, slick on the finish and almost completely lacking in carbonation, feels like a stale rum and coke. This sounds good on paper (other than the flatness), but the execution leaves something to be desired, pretty boozy as it warms. This sounds pretty weird, but it sort of works for the flavor profile of the beer. I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, it could definitely use a little more carbonation, but it is quite tasty as is, very nice, mellow sipper. drowland (8888) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2011
5/20/11. Bomber thanks to Tim and Rachel. Malty caramel aroma with a hint of oxidation that is borderline barleywine like. Big caramel malty flavor that again reminds me of a barleywine. Nice!
