Draft from Brewery. Served in a tulip glass, the bartender created a nearly perfect pour with the inch thick off-white head touching the brim of the glass, above its medium brown body. This brew has a sweet, almost milk chocolate nose. On the hoppy side for a doppelbock, this beer is nicely balanced, smooth and warming. Very tasty.

hazy brown colour with reddish notes and half inch creamy beige-is head; aroma of caramel, soy sauce, hints of vanilla, dried fruits, raisin and floral notes; taste of syrupy sweetness with dried fruits, mild roasted rye bread, soy sauce notes and spicy alcohol; good beer, though would be much better if this syrupy maltines was more balanced by hops

Pours a dark brown with red notes, thin off-white head, quickly dissipating. Aroma of molasses, and bread. Flavor is a little more pumpernickel-y, rather sweet and syrupy. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Dark amber body with slight head. Nose is nuts, toasted grain, molasses, figs.
Flavor also malts, caramel, some dark fruit hints. Some dark bread note, decent yeast backbone. Bitter in the finish. But quite sweet but not sugary. It does show a mild bitterness. More balanced then I was guessing. This is actually rather good.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Bit drunk now. Thanks to Fan1Jan. Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palatye is light, dry and a little crispy. Good rich creamy malts sweetness, but also a touch of lactose like sweetness. Dried fruits. Light semi dry finish. Okay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from somewhere. Poured a really good looking clear chestnut brown body with an ample tight foamy beige head. Aroma of brown paper bags, raisin, nuts shell. Flavor is the same plus date and fig skins. Fuller syrupy mouthfeel and soft carbonation with some warming on the finish. Solid enough.
