3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep amber color with big white head. Aromas mostly of sweet caramel malt and bread dough, the sweetness verging on dark fruit. Flavor is not as sweet as aroma implies, very bready with a surprisingly clean finish for all its alcohol and sweetness. Not my favorite style, but this is a well crafted brew.

Aroma is malty with a hint of dates and maple syrup. Dark brown appearance with a thick and lasting off white head. Very fruity flavor is grape-like with some sweet maple and a malty finish. Good beer.

Wow! A pleasent surprise. My first brew from this brewery. Have to be careful with this one. Taste so good you forget about the 8.2. And that my friend will cause you a world of hurt.

Pours a cloudy copper. The aroma is an earthy malt. There’s little to none of the pruniness of some doppels. I tasted this one with the Full Sail Mercator and it wasn’t the beer Mercator was.
