Bottle @ home picked up somewhere in New Mexico. I had a really godawful Doppelbock early, so I wasn’t really in the mood for this but what the hell. Pours a clear brown appearance with a tan head. A bit woody smoky, dark caramel, slightly nutty aroma. Rich nutty, light toffee, toasty malty, kind of grainy, herbal flavor that dries out a bunch on the finish. Ok.

Bottle. Clear amber pour with a smaller white head. Nose is caramel malt. Moderate palate. Kind of a malt bomb on the taste - caramel and earthy tones. Not bad. olio (10289) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2012

Clear dark amber with a foamy off-beige head. The aroma is sweet and dark with chewy doughiness and toast. The flavor is just as bready and toast, with a lager-biscuitiness, dark sweet grain malts, and toasted muffin. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2011
12oz bottle, from my wonderful family during a recent road-trip of theirs. Wonderful, clear red/amber color, with some fine floating sediment visible. Very minimal head, yet it leaves a few dots of lacing. Creamy, caramel, mild licorice, dark fruit, some chocolate, alcohol notes. Classic doppelbock aroma, a style I appreciate so much that it is probably in my top 3 (alongside the Black IPA and IIPA, perhaps). Palate has a bit of an acidic texture to it, and the carbonation seems a tiny bit too harsh, but the aftertaste is sublime. I like these brews. It’s difficult to disappoint me with a doppelbock, this brew is no exception. A satisfactory execution of the style. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
A yeasty dark strong lager with noticeably unclean fermentation: metal, mold, higher alcohols, dark caramel malt, cola, plum and apple hooch, vegetables / canned corn / DMS. Solvent and oily alcohol on the palate. Sweet and chalky with a limp, watery body. Shamefully bad! bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Draft. Ruby-mahogany beer with a dark cream head. Rich malt and light dark fruit aroma. Rich malt and caramel flavor with toffee and light dark fruit. Medium bodied. Caramel/toffee lingers with dark fruit and light mineral notes. douglas88 (9194) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a tiny white head. The aroma is a light and sweet malt. The flavor is pretty simple; some malt, sweet potato, apple, a bit of hops, and some grain. The best quality is the palate which is dominated by a fizzy alcohol bite. Not bad at all. In fact, I think this beer has a lot to like. More strong beers Utah! The most amazing thing about this beer is the label which shows a drunken enraged ram destroying Salt Lake City and the Mormon Temple. Wow! What balls from Wasatch.
