look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours amber with a finger of khaki colored head. Minimal head retention & lacing

S: Slight breadyness & pears

T: Some pear & breadyness, plus herbal hops up front. Pears & white grapes as this warms & just a hint of caramel as this warms, but mostly orchard fruit. Finishes fruitty with a touch honey malt &
pineapple

MF: Fairly chewy, low carbonation

A good bock that has a few flaws holding it back, but I drink this if offered it, wouldn't buy it again though

Poured into a snifter

A: Pours blonde in color with a thick, yellowish head. Dark maze body, clear with a slight haze.

S: Strong, musty aroma. Prominent sweet malts. Hints of corn with a thick molasses. Sour aroma typical in golden bocks.

T/M: Rich body, tastes like a blonde ale with sweet wort frosting on top. Really slow on the way down. Slightly bitter carbonation on back end. Do not get any hop presence.

O: Well put together. Rich flavor but very straight forward. Extremely drinkable, could use more complexity. Then again I am comparing it too Bell's Consecrator which is a malt bomb. For a "blonde" dopplebock it is exactly what I expect.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Strong malt aromas with slight caramel. Moderate alcohol aroma.
Appearance: Deep gold color. Creamy white persistent head made of fine bubbles.
Flavor: Powerful malt flavor with abundant melanoidin. Slight caramel flavors. Warming alcohol flavor from start to finish. Decidedly sweet with low bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body with medium carbonation. Very smooth.
Overall Impression: A stronger but lighter version of a bock, perhaps a double version of a Maibock.
Comments: This beer taste more like a malt cordial than what most people think of as beer. At 7.8%, it is more of a treat than something you would drink with dinner. Still a very special treat for malt lovers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Aroma: Sweet honey and malt. No real hop aroma.

Mouthfeel: Thick and creamy, it foams up in your mouth as you sip it. Very smooth, coating the mouth. Nearly zero carbonation.

Taste: Sweet and creamy, with honey and malt very prominent. No hop flavor noticeable, and just a tiny hint of bitterness. Slight toasty notes on the end.

Overall: I love it! It's a big mouthful. A big, creamy beer. Excellent choice for an after-dinner/dessert beverage.
