Wooden pin @ the Beer Table. It has a brown color. The aroma is wood/bark, faint alcohol, and it surrounded by light dark fruits. Taste is lightly syrupy sugar with dark fruits and light prunes. It finishes with a bitter finish, It really nice and very un-German. Its easy drinking yet the bitter finish gives it some real heft. There is an aspects of sweet prune in the finish as well. Very nice and I am glad I got to try this pin as opposed to the bottles.

Clear mahogany with a creamy tan colored head. Big fruity melanoidan aroma with raisin, plum, caramel malt, floral hops. Soft, fruity and alcoholic in flavor. More bitter than most German Dopplebocks I’ve had. Candy like in flavor, similar to a Dopplebock but perhaps a little lighter in body with some tanginess and a more pronounced hop flavor.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 bottled 04/18... not sure what that means. rich hazy amber/brown color with a small khaki head that leaves light spotty lacing. smells like raisins and skunky hops mixed with sweet malt, molasses, wood and grass. it tastes like regular ovaltine... chocolate, vanilla, raisins and sweet grains. a nice dry bitter grassiness offsets the sweet (but not cloying) palate. aftertaste is of grassy and skunky hops. medium to full body with soft carbonation and a slick smooth texture. 7/4/8/4/16/3.9

on tap at papago... ruby tinted brown shade of black with a huge puffy off white head. additional aromas of fresh cherries and maple syrup added to the prior review. lots of spice and a hint of alcohol creep in on the palate as it warms. any sugar previously tasted from the bottle is no issue and really nowhere. roasty bitterness and fresh hoppy dryness really clean it up nicely. full rich body with a luscious creamy mouth feel...8/4.5/8/4.5/17/4.25

Bottled. Medium ruby in color. Spiced dark fruit aroma. Dry and yeasty flavored with a bit of raisin. Dark and fruity rule the day in this beer.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Pours a cloudy brown almost cocoa color with a thin beige head. Week aroma that is malty with some hops. A little watered down for my taste. ABV well hidden with a nice balance of maltiness and hops.

Dirt brown pour with a nice light simple head. Smell is subtle and malty and a hint smokyish. Taste is caramel and spiced. Thin average palate. A hint watery. Reminds me of a dopplebock or perhaps watered down scotch. Hmmmm.

bottle shared courtesy of JohnathanL. Thanks!
Pours a light muddy brown color with light head. Smell is thin and caramel like malt mostly. Taste is toasty, creamy caramel, with a tart edge to it, in the way an Oktoberfest might be. Somewhat thin, but smooth. Very drinkable but didn’t stand out too much. Still enjoyable.

Bottle. Nice dark color. Warm brown with vanilla colored head. Smells of dried fruits. Excellent flavor, taste of roasted malt. Love this beer
