Fiery scarlet red hue to this one. Thin beige head. Minimal lace. Huge rich malty nose. Caramel and toffee explode in rich wafts of beer goodnes. Smooth velvety mouthfeel with rich flavors of malt....crystal/caramel based malts....double decocted malt goodness. Similar to the Autumnal Fire, but different in a way. Hard to place a finger on it but to try maybe a little more candy like presence in the sweetness. Very good dopplbock. Looking forward to future creations from this base beer. Alcohol is barely perceptible.

Served in Duvel tulip glass.

Leave it to modern humans to take a cool metaphor and turn it into a comparatively meek concrete expression of remembrance. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sienna-topaz topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises lightly-toasted rye bread, maple syrup, candied orange peel, mild booze, a hint of fennel, and what seems like a pinch of clove. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more fennel, a more darkly-toasted bread component, some mild notes of red apple skin, and an increased feel of booze, which nearly comes off as too much for its own good. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, a mostly solid d-bock, though a bit too boozy for my tastes.

Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Thanks Tom.

The beer is murky amber with a thin, off white head. The aroma offers fruits, sweet malt, alcohol. Plums and booze in the flavor. Medium bodied and a bit harsh in the finish. Needs some refinement and could be gentler on the palate.

Capital Eternal Flame. Capital Brewery Company, Middleton, WI.

Clear, crimson coloring, very small head.

Aroma: sweet and malty, a little woody, some oak? Very mellow and balanced, while still sweet, just a little fruity.

Taste: Plump and juicy malt flavor. Sweet and succulent. Raisins and figs and apple. Just plain ol' yummy-yum. Good balance, but leaning heavy on the sweet malty side. And the booze comes rolling in. 9% won't stay quiet.

Let's take a break and read the label, shall we?
"Capital Square Series. Welcome to generation two of the evolving flame concept. In addition to Autumnal/Imperial Fire blend, we've added a BIG, smoldering delight, christened Jacked Maibock. Join us for a walk on the intensely malty side."

I like the name, I love the art on the bottle. That's a crazy looking bird! And the beer is quite nice, as well. Big, fat and malty, sweet and full, molasses and raisins, dark rum, and other delights. Tasty stuff. A lovely nightcap.

2012 big bottle

A: very nice copper-brown color, very little head when poured, clear
S: sweetish, rounded, chocolate, very moreish
T: I really like this beer, it's a classic doppelbock with a few % in ABV added, rounded roast malt, the right amount of hops, some caramelized malt, and a bit of hotness to round out the swallow
M: rounded, very drinkable, a beer that could really catch you by surprise
