3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle out of variety pack. Pours a dark ruby copper brown color. This is definitely a doppebock, Its a sweet, malty, syrupy dark lager. A little earthy, a little wet leaf. Very much akin to German doppelbocks. Not like most American doppelbocks. So, some people just dislike the style but I like it. This isn’t the best version of the style but its definitely within the typical bounds.
