Pours a deep dark brown with a tan foamy head. Aroma has hints of roast. Taste is slightly bitter and a little watery. No distinctive flavors jump out. A bit of a miss...

FlacoAlto (4240) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2018
The beer pours with a frothy light brown tinged tan head that is nice and creamy textured. The beer is a concentrated Brown Hue that shows a deep red slash vibrant Brown Hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a nice multi nutty note to it, there is perhaps a hint of buttery diacetyl, and there is a lot of rich dark malt character here.
Taste is very malty, with a bit of buttery character to it that suggests of maybe a hint of diacetyl. Very nutty, lots of toasted malt, but also has a chewy dark malt sweetness to it. Body is nice and chewy for a beer of this strength and is just about perfect for the beer. There is just a hint of spicy hot character to the finish, that adds a bit of complexity to the beer.
This is very nicely done. It could perhaps use a touch more adult dark malt character to balance out the sweetness.

Pours a light black with a white head. Flavor is nutty with strong alcohol taste and nutty aftertaste. This one was oxidized a tad and I had to mark it down a couple notches since it’s not particularly old.

Tap, restaurant, Wisconsin Dells. Raisin and clove aroma. Sweet, root beer flavour. More raisin prune. Cola like finish.

mrjaxson (641) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2015
About as average a beer as I’ve had lately. Just faint nuttiness to the aroma, light body and hints of sweetness on finish. Poured from a tap at the Sprecher restaurant in Lake Geneva, WI.

A pretty decent doppelbock. Deep mahogany coloration, mild malty flavor, bready with some light caramel sweetness.

Not bad this. It was quite strong but smooth. NOt hard to drink but neither something special there.

3.1
crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
473ml twist-off. Purs a darker amber wiht a thick forhty off-white head. Smell is roasted grains, herbs, and salted pork. Oooh a savory dish! It is poorly bodied but has a nice flavor of dark bread, savory, spices, caramel, rye, herbal cutting bitterness. Certainly not up to par wth the best of the style but nto bad.

beerbaaron (1997) - Arizona, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Dark ruby brown with small off-white lasting head. Aroma is quite powerful but smooth; sweet, malty, caramel, toffee, bread, touch of dark fruit. Flavor not nearly as powerful, but still very tasty. Smooth, balanced, and very drinkable. Body is smaller than I expected. Very nice toasty bready finish. Better with every sip.
