Tasted 24 October 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a dark brown amber, some reddish hues. Not much head, and what there is fades fast. No lacing that I can see.

Smell is sugary, sugary, sugary. Brown sugar, molasses, any other kind you like. Not overpowering, but mostly one-dimensional. Some dark fruit, plums and figs. It's sweet, and could definitely do with some more complexity, but I like it.

Taste is also fairly sweet, but with less depth, less fruit. Drifts into a moderately bitter finish. Tastes fine, but it's shallow.

Medium-bodied, slick on the tongue. Medium-low carbonation. Works fine.

A solid, definitely above-average doppelbock. I like it; its main faults are that it doesn't measure up to the best in depth and complexity. But it's tasty.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

Dark brown in color with great clarity. A fingernail of khaki colored head obverse three quarters of the top. The aroma is comprised of dark malt,chocolate,and sourdough bread. The flavor is chocolate,dark malt,with a bit of a sourdough component. The mouth is moderately carbonated and smooth.

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.
