Paid $7.99 to refill my growler at Party Source in Bellevue, KY...
Served to guests for SUPER BOWL 42! Go Giants!
The beer pours a clear chocolate base, medium white-caramel colored head, long-lasting head retention and nice signs of lacing throughout the glass. The aroma is smoky like woodchips at first, then a full nose of malts, slightly sweet to follow, heavenly for the malt-lover.
The taste (and I agree with TheBierBand in letting the beer settle about 15 minutes to warm up) is sweet at first, toffee for sure, and settles with a full malt aftertaste coupled with a crisp finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth with the retaining head and the beer meets all drinkability expectations, and by no means has the feel of any alcohol at 6.5% abv.
Final Thought: Wow, I've had their doppelbock before, but this emancipator "brand" feels like the high-end model of their original beer... outstanding!
