Bomber thanks to thetomG on BA. The Creeper pours a dark brown color with a large tan head that soon fades to a half finger size then settles at that. Roasty aroma with malt balls, toffee, and dark fruit. Smells very nice. Big full flavor - you could convince me that this was a good German doppelbock. Rather roasty with slight coffee notes, molasses, toffee, fig and other dark fruits. Not too sweet. Medium-full bodied with carbonation on the lively side. This is very good. I’d be all over the creeper like Chris Hansen. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2011
22 oz bottle. from Lushawn (I think). Soy sauce brown/black. Nose malty and alcohol. Big fuzzy mouth. Dark malt taste. Sharp tartness to deep dark fruit. Roasted. mxtur (266) - Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2011 This was quite the taste. Toasty nuts and morning bread and jam with a surprisingly smooth ending. Light in texture. I could have a few of these at a time, but that’s why they call it the Creeper because it sneaks up on. You will feel the 9% trust me. playitbybeer (118) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Roasted malty nose, bready, kind of nutty, and alcohol. Caramel, dried fruits, nutty, malts, a bit hoppy, and a touch of alcohol. Mouth is thin and bitter with a warming alcohol finish. DaSilky1 (2608) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Bottle via lagunitasfan via lushawn via god knows where. Pours a nice dark color underneath and full and frothy above. salty, nutty, alcoholic, port-wine-like nose. Malty, sweet, and doppelbock-like flavors with nice sweet, nutty characteristics...very malty beer but hides the alcohol quite well, at least a lot better than the nose led on...though it kind of presents itself in the very late finish/aftertaste where the nutty bitterness and alcohol are all that’s left. Lots of nutty brittle flavors though...and a punch of two of some malty sweetness.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, small light tan head. Dark dried fruits, caramel malts, sweet sugars, raisin, and some roastiness. A decent doppelbock, not my favorite style. I do like the tribute to Pelican though. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Dark brown pour with tan head and lace. Dried fruit and light brown sugar. Super sweet roasted malt and dried fruit. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Black as a stout, this was a very German flavor- bready and alcoholic, really warms your chest as it goes down. Smooth, but pretty generic. Sampled at the Nashville Beer Summit. illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Shared at Nashville Beer Summit 1.0. Pours brown with a tan head. Medium bodied with steady carbonation. Flavor of dark german malts and dark fruits, with an extra spicy hop kick. Pretty solid. drowland (9077) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2011
1/7/10. Bottle thanks to mlunger12. Mild malty caramel aroma with hints of cocoa. Sweet malty flavor with a surprising amount of roasted goodness mixed with chocolate.
