On tap at Rustico - Alexandria. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a dark amber color with a tiny head that recedes quickly without really bringing any lacing forming. The nose is definitely quite a bit of malt with some caramel, toffee, and bread. The flavor brings quite a bit of booze. A lot of booze. Some booze-soaked bread and a bit of fruity yeast. Mouthfeel is dominated by booze and a bit of sugar. Too boozy and not really all that complex.

750ml bottle poured into a standard pint glass

The been poured thick and strong with a beautiful two-finger head that stood firm and creamy. A bright-ish copper color makes it look like a solid amber beer.

The aroma is where the wheels fell off for me. I picked up roasted malts along with an odd smell that made me think of a just-ran dishwasher. This is very weird, but it was impossible to forget that unpleasant smell.

There's very little hops in the flavor. This beer tastes almost smokey and bready. There's zero hint of carbonation and a full, enjoyable mouthfeel. This is not a taste that I prefer, but I can tell it's a well made brew. Recommended if you like this style.

GLASS: Pokal Glass
TEMP: Chilled to approx 45 degrees

Despite my disdain for bottles with opaque packaging (I like to be able to see the product inside) I decided to give this one a shot.

Nice straight amber color with a golden tint. Massive BIG head from a medium pour. Great retention. Excellent lacing.

Not alot going on in the nose, here. Slight sweet caramel malt notes. Minimal citrus hop notes detected.

More of the same in the taste. A little bit of citrus hops flavor. A tiny bit of malt sweetness attempts to bring balance. Quite the bitter aftertaste. An oddly musty overtone that made me question the cleanliness of my glass to the point that I just went and washed it and opened a second bottle. Still tastes the same.

Nice medium body. Not too watery. This is where this brew actually relates to a dopplebock.

Sorry, but I can't get passed the mustiness in this one. Together with the fact that there just isn't alot going on in here. Won't be rushing out to buy more of these.

I understand the concept of this beer and love the smell of it! Not a fav of the Strong Hoppiness! Great For a Strong ale of course but i tend to lean towards lagers and browns... Probably need to sit down and ave one of these again and really get into it! not a go to beer but You should try it out!

From notes.
Large capped red ceramic like bottle.

Light brown in color, golden highlights, nice tan head. Average retention and lacing.
Aroma is hotter than expected, with some bourbon/whisky notes, but a lot of malty sweetness, think cookies, fresh bread.
I was fully expecting this to be a boozy malt bomb from the aroma, but it is not.
Medium bodied, the boozy notes are all there, and a bit unpleasant, but the flavor is quite bitter when compared to the aroma. The alcohol heat and grassy hops do not blend well, and the maltiness is not enough to hold it together.
After a small sample, I was done with this one.

Capped Reddish bottle just like the picture. Poured into a oversized wine glass it is easily managed. Orange body, off white head.

My first impression is that its decent. It seems to be less than a double in content considering I had a regular Dead Guy side by side. Very similar. Largely based on a sweet malt base. Rather sticky mouthfeel and slightly syrupy.

I wasn't a huge fan of the original so it shouldn't be a shock that I didn't like this very much. Its well brewed just not for me. Too much of the sticky sweet side of things.
