3.6/5 rDev -0.8%
A: This poured a nearly opaque light mahogany with some light tan head.
S: It smelled like bready and nutty malt, with some earthy copper hops and oak and sweet toffee.
T: It tasted like sweet caramel and earthy nutty malts, with some oak and copper hops. It had a clean earthy and sweet aftertaste with some alcohol warming.
M: It was thick with moderate carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a nice doppelbock with simple but enjoyable scent and taste. The body was great, but the finish was hot, so it was better to sip. Actually seems like it could improve with a year or two in the cellar. Fresh is good, not great.

2.74/5 rDev -24.5%
Appearance: a solid brown color that hints towards black depending on the light. a finger of a white head that leaves behind a bit of a lacing. almost opaque but lets just a little bit of light through.
Smell: sweet. maybe some brown sugar, breadiness, chocolate and earthiness.
Taste: opens up with chocolate tending towards roasty malts. overtaking by a huge earthiness, mixing with bread. very weird balance too it, which i have a difficulty explaining.
Mouthfeel: sweet and fairly light for the style, completely missing the lager cleanness.
Overall: i found this beer way too muddled between flavors. the chocolate and earthiness just seem out of place and don't balance very well.

Bomber, served in a Tyranena snifter
A - pours a dark copper, clear, fades to zero head
S - biscuit and caramel, a bit of subdued hops follow
T - sweet, but not overly so, caramel up front, hops are more present here than in the nose
M - rather thin, surprising for 9.0% abv, but smooth
O - good value, certainly a solid dopplebock, nothing earth-shattering. Won't necessarily seek it out, but would happily have it again
