3.6
Tmoney99 (15039) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted and good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and dark fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium dark fruit sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

3.7
Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2012
On cask at MacNiven’s in Indy. The beer pours dark brown with a thin beige head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, coffee and caramel. Medium to full body with a roasty malt and coffee character and notes of dark fruits and caramel. The finish is sweet and malty. Above average overall.

3.4
deyholla (12449) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Growler at the 2010 March Metro Detroit tasting. Poured a cleasr light brown with an off-white head. Aroma had a nice grain aroma, but it was a bit one note. Full of nice malt flavor, but again it was quite note.

3.8
shrubber85 (11666) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Draft. Toffee malt, hay, and light alcohol aroma. Amber with small head. Sweet light fruity barley malt and light astringent alcohol flavor. Good body. Tasty - on the light side style-wise though.

3.9
phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Draft sample at the brewery. Pours a semi-cloudy amber color with a small off-white head. Notes of toasted and caramel malts, nuts, mildly spiced sweet bread, dried fruits (raisins, dates, prunes), and just a bit of earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, malty mouthfeel. Very, very good doppelbock.

3.3
b3shine (9208) - Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent copperish orange with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Solid beer.

3.3
TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2010
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a nice murky brownish amber, darker, with red notes beneath, a frothy moderate offwhite near tan head. Laces ok. Aromas are a hearty malt base, caramel and biscuits, coffee grounds are lighter but there, a light floral hopping but fairly malt forward. Sweeter, a bit roasty. Initial is medium bodied, a darker malt sweetness, coffee essence, faint roast, caramel and toffee envelope. A bit sticky, sweeter, hops are died out, goes down easy but a bit full and thicker for sessioning. Nice, a little too sweet for me. A touch more hops would do it.

3.7
vyvvy (6777) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 25, 2017
It pours bronze with an off white head. It has a lighter body than expected and fairly sharp carbonation. The taste has dry roasted malt, lager smoothness, leaves and toffee. Solid.

3.8
Patrickctenchi (6750) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Draft:
Red-brown with a creamy tan head.
Caramel, toasty aroma.
Caramel malt, baked bread, gingerbread, cream taste.
Sweet and mild.
Excellent.

3.8
Boutip (6567) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 10, 2016
Draft: Poured a clear brown color bock with a nice brown foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of banana bread with light caramelized malt notes is quite pleasant. Taste is also a mix of banana bread with some caramelized toffee notes and some residual sugar notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Well balanced with good drinkability.
