3.73/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750 ml bottle. Bottled May 2010 - bottle number 1617. Pours a hazy tea brown with a monstrous creamy off-white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is caramel malts, vanilla, wood, some spices and dark fruit and alcohol.

The flavor is caramel malts and vanilla, with some fruits and a spicy cinnamon alcohol finish with a little bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with lowish carbonation.

Overall, it's a little hot and a bit on the sweet side, but I liked it.

Bottle into a snifter at Capone's for a O'dells event for Philly Beer Week, I love this city & da burbs.

Woody number 4 has a medium penny bronze look with some light brown spots along with a nice off white bubbly sugar looking head about a inch, thick looking, clumps of sticky lace. Smell is complex and big, it's large and in charge. I get malted barley, caramel, citrus hops, wood and oak, with some grain. A nice hot whiskey as well. Everything is big. Large in taste as well, I think this is my 1st double marzen & this delivers. Toasted Malt, caramel, whiskey wood up front with apricot and tangerine in the middle. finishes malty with some small chocolate and grain. Mouth gets a splash of alcohol, but it gets a dousing of flavor. Kinda coating in the mouth, four is above medium bodied with a very small syrup likeness, but more of a light coating. Low heat. Sweet and malty, nicely hopped, nicely oaked. It
s really easy to drink this quick, but it's 11%, take your time. The original style is super drinkable when basic and low, this souped up double version is no different.

bottle @ Capone's
Pours a orangish-copper with a one-finger tan head. Nose is apricots, raisins, oak and vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy and smooth. Taste is wonderfully complex - darks fruits, almonds with the whiskey and oak along with some sweet malt and vanilla in the back. Finish is crisp with some mild and pleasant warming. Nicely balanced and such interesting flavors...this would be a near perfect fall treat, although it was pretty wonderful in June. At 11% you must be careful, but with the taste of this, you won't want to be!

From a bottle at Capone's during Philly Beer Week...

A - Two fingers worth of rich creamy slightly off white colored head... Never have I seen such unrelenting retention... A glowing orange amber color...

S - The oak is simply intoxicating... It dominates and does so in a good way... There are undertones of some toasted malts and mild tropical fruitiness...

T - Caramel... Subtle pineapple... Golden raisins... Coconut... Vanilla... Oak... Wonderful balance and complexity...

M - There's smooth and smoother, but this one may be the smoothest of them all... Ever so slightly sticky... This one goes down sip after sip after sip... Smooth, creamy, and exceptional... On the fuller side of medium bodied... Oh so good...

D - I could sip away at this each and every night and be a very happy camper... There's no hiding the 11% ABV, but this one is a winner all the way around... There aren't enough accolades to describe this one adequately... Sophisticated, smooth, and in a league of it's own about sums it up...

A bottle at capones.

A- glowing orange brown with beautiful clarity. Just a skin of a head but hell it an 11 abv lager.

S- fruity and rich with sweet malts, coconut, papaya. Mild hints of the oak.

T- sweet up front with honey, caramel, toffee, dark bread. Lots of tropical fruit with coconut and mangosteen. Oak and vanilla close things out.

M- medium to full body with a lite carb. So smooth and creamy.

D- god damn this is a fucking lager? How did he do this? Best lager I've ever had. And almost no hint of the abv. I'm in love.

A nice whiskey color orange/copper with a short white head.

Nose is very floral, malty, oaky ("vanilla") and with lots of pleasant whiskey undertones.

Mouthfeel is medium full but rich and with very good good balance. The balance is really one of the strengths of this beer.

Flavors are rich and full malty cooked stone fruit with assertive whiskey/Bourbon character and tones. Undertones of carmel bitter milked coffee and some "whiskey smoke." This one has to warm a bit to get the full flavors and complexities but it's worth it.

Released May 2010; Bottle 3116.
