3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft into pint glass. Pours a light cola brown with a small head. Aroma of fresh bread and molasses. Tastes is sweet bread, molasses and dark fruit. Very rich and sweet, but the sugar isnt over powering. Slightly chewy mouthfeel. I could envision simmering this down and pouring it all over vanilla ice cream.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can into a snifter. Pours a dark brown/red with a very small tan head. Aroma consists of dark fruits, nuts, roasted malts, and caramel. All of those aromas come through in the taste with additions to vanilla, toffee, tobacco, and chocolate. Some aluminum comes through in the taste as well, but it does not dampen the flavor. It is a very sweet beer. Medium bodied beer with low carbonation and a velvety mouth feel.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice dark amber color with a medium head that dispates quickly leaving little lacing. Nice malty aroma with a slight sweetness. Very malty flavor with a fruity sweetness and caramel and a little bit of hops bitterness, but very little. A delicious beer worth trying no matter what kind of beer you like.

Bottle. Thanks willblake!
clear, medium brown in color with a fine light tan head of middling duration. The nose is caramel, brown sugar, bread and butterscotch.
Mouthfeel is nice and full, taste is malt first with roast and caramel malts to the front with a mild hop bitterness underneath. Also, a bit of bandaid character that’s off-putting. Finish is sweet with a bit of alcoholic tongue bite.
A decent doppelbock.

Pours a reddish brown with a foamy tan head. Little to no carbonation. Sweet aroma of caramel and raisins. Tastes of caramel malts and molasses with a spicy finish. Could use a bigger body.
