Bottle from Cindys Spirits. On the money doppelbock, could use a nudge in the "lasting head" department, but all else is right on. Molasses/brown sugar sweetness permeate both aroma and taste, nice slick body. Elements of maple syrup, rum and raisins. Cheers to this brewerys output!

guzzler67 (1685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Rusty hue with a small, tan, fast fading head that left little lacing. Aroma of honey wheat bread, toffee and ripe fruit. Caramel malt sweetness starts things off, bringing along notes of dark fruit, brown sugar and molasses. Full bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel with a long lasting finish.

A decent ale. Pours a very nice dark Amber with a tan head. Smells like beautiful vanilla bean. Taste however is not very complex. Smooth and malty but not the most interesting. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.
