tfontana (952) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Appearance is lightly hazy, light brown-reddish copper with tons of sparkle, 2+-finger width foamy beige head with excellent retention and thick sudsy lacing. Aroma is strong bready and caramel malts, light sweet astringent alcohol/acetone. Taste is bready malt with caramel, light sweet alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, soft carbonation, light warmth in esophagus, sweet malty finish. Overall, not the most complex style but above average in all categories. Nice Alt! tekstr1der (482) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy mahogany with small tan cap. Pretty. Aroma is that of a dopplebock (a fave) - raisins, molasses, ripe dark fruits - love it. Flavor follows very similarly with lots of malty sweetness embedded with ripe fruits. Just enough barely detectable mild earthy hop kicks in at the end of the sip to almost balance it and leave a fairly clean finish with only the slightest sweet lingering. This stuff is fantastic. thepatrickman (1307) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 30, 2016
From notes (May 2015). A bigger, scaled up version of Tuckerman’s flagship, this is noticeably maltier and fuller. Good, grainy taste and some nice yeast notes, before finishing really clean. Iphonephan (6950) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2015
On draft at Lord Hobo in Cambridge. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Malty nose. Flavors of toast. Light bodied. Slightly bitter finish. Quick3Beers (1202) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours a dark copper from a bottle with thick off-white head. Aroma is faint banana and brown sugar, covered up by the head. Flavor is a sweet, malty cherry, with a hit of bitterness. Slight burn from the alcohol, palate is slightly thin. A good beer.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a murky dark amber color with a super thick white head. Aroma is of dusty malts, hops and aluminum. Taste is pretty much the same with a little roasty toasty sweetness. Quite possibly molasses. Nice lacing. Leaves a toasted malt finish. Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Sinus clearing spicy caramel-dough aroma. Dark brown, very active, lasting head film. Brown sugar malt, nut and dark fruit taste, and fairly bitter at that. Thick and heavy all around. Best beer of this style I can remember being made Germany. annunz123 (957) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Malty aroma, with nuts, caramel/toffee, and some spice. Flavor is somewhat sweet and a little spicy. Some pine hops and a fair amount of drying alcohol in the finish. A nice, tasty sipper. DuffMan (10271) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle, shared with my wife. Deep amber brown, average tan head. Fruity caramel aroma, with deeper dark sugar notes and a pleasant yeasty edge. Rich malty palate, dark sugars, dates, fruity yeast. Rich and full bodied, excellent. thornecb (5878) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. White head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Dark molasses and bitter earth front to back.
