Sampled a bottle at the Bayou in SLC.

Appearance: Dark ruby/crimson brew, with a thin head with little clumpy islands in the center of my glass.

Smell: Dark caramel malts well balanced out by a firm alcoholic nose.

Taste: Carbonation is vivid and prickly, taste is quite similar to the smell, with the caramel just enough in the forefront to subdue the alcohol heat, which in turn brings all the flavors together. After drinking that many low ABV Beers, the mouthfeel on this one was quite powerful and I enjoyed it a lot.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Pours a rich mahogany with a quickly dissipating head, minimal whispy lacing.
S - Has a stouts sweetness in aroma, very warm with some underlying maple notes, no alcohol presence.
T - Very light hop profile, slightly chocolate, lots of sweetness here, very mild bitterness. Medium body, decent mouthfeel, easy drinking.
O - A nice step up from Shiner Bock as far as depth of flavor and complexity is concerned. A great transitional beer for those wanting to get into craft beer.
V - Bought single, not sure of 6 pack pricing.

From notes; best by 5/23/11, consumed 4/20/11

A - Pours amber with one finger of tan head. Head has pretty good retention.

S - Smells like bread and dried fruits, mostly raisin and plums.

T - Similar to the smell. Also getting some flavors of tea and light caramel malt. Finish has a bit of bitterness to it.

M - Medium mouthfeel, actually a bit thin. Slightly sticky but pretty clean. Finishes somewhat dry.

O - Pretty good doppelback, but doesn't really stand out. Alcohol is not apparent. Just a bit too thin.

12 oz bottle. Pours light ruby brown with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is toasted bready malts with a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet toasted chocolate and caramel nutty malts with some fruit and a little smokiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice doppelbock. A bit too sweet for me.

12oz brown with a freshness date.

LOOK: Dark brassy amber, sufficient head

SMELL: Broth, treacle, chicory, dark bread, clean, spicy alcohol, yeast, nutty, mineral

TASTE: Creamy, full bodied, malt sweetness, cocoa powder, bread crust, herbal hop, nutty grain, grassy, clean semi-dry finish

Tasty even if it does not show off that much depth. Very clean and almost too easy to drink for an 8.0% brew. Well done.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: caramel brown in color, 1/3 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: rich and deep caramel

Taste: deep caramel, brown sugar, slight chocolate

Mouthfeel: rich and heavy bodied, low carbonation, sweet

Overall:A solid doppelbock that is dangerously drinkable. This one is good and sweet but not overly complex. I will pick this up again at some point.

The beer pours a brown color with a large, off-white head. The aroma is very malt as is expected. I get some toffee and bread notes, as well as some vinous notes. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of toffee and a little bread, as well as some grape-like fruit notes that mix very well with the malt. The alcohol is detectable but not overwhelming. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice doppelbock.

Poured into pint glass with very light head and a moderate amber color. Light malt smell. Taste a bit sweet, light malt flavor. Before you know it you are ready for another drink because the taste is gone. Definitely a week doppel but very drinkable. No hint that it is an 8% so a positive there. Would chose another one to drink while out in a bar but I would not have to have another.

Pretty decent sized off white to light tan head leaves a milky decent sized lacing over a clear reddish caramel colored beer.

Slightly spiced sweet caramel malt aroma.

A light alcohol hint on a rich sweet caramel malt with a lightly toasted taste, with a slight hop backbone.

This medium bodied beer finishes with a light caramel light dry aftertaste.

A pretty decent beer, but slightly more of a caramel taste than I was hoping for.
