4.4/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

$ 3.49 for 16.9 oz bottle at Oppermann’s Cork ‘N’ Ale
Bottle marked 4143 at 50 degrees into weizen glass
Aroma of malt, but not very strong
Head large (7 cm), light brown, rocky with small – medium bubbles, slowly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing moderate, broken rings and stalactites of small bubbles
Body dark brown, clear
Flavor starts slightly sweet, malty; no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl; ends slightly sweet and malty
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

This is an excellent Starkbier which apparently translates in the import state (SC) as a malt liquor. The palate, appearance, and flavor are both very good, leaving only the weak nose as a detriment. I may be forced to buy a case to verify the weak nose

3.96/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The bottle is so us usual and beautiful, I had to try it. Poured from a bottle into a Pilsner, at a temperature between the fridge and room temp. Color is a crystal clear strawberry red with the slightest brown tinge when held up to intense light. Thin, tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, with roasted malt and caramel sweetness, with mild floral hops. Flavor is again yeasty, roasted malt, toffee sweetness, with a slightly piney finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin, and a bit foamy. This is a style that I do not understand (doppelbock), so I am rating it just as an enjoyable brew and experience. On that basis, I will say it is a very good to outstanding lager, well worth sampling. And this one has a bear, not a goat on the label.
