Poured in a big wine glass at 54 F/ 12 C.

Dark red-tinged brown, creamy dense beige head, latticed finely textured lace. Head looks solid, but then does not stick around for long.

Rich malty aroma, like Grape Nuts, caramel, honey, and chocolate.

Tastes malty and sweet, with balancing roastiness and a faint herbal hop flavor. Grain, caramel, honey, chocolate, prune. Lingering chocolate and mild alcohol.

Rich smooth texture. Quite drinkable.

Tasty expression of the malt.

Had at Not Your Average Joe's in Watertown on 10/25
Poured in to a pint glass

A: This beer pours a nice deep dark brown with a 1/4 inch of light brown head. Head recedes immediately and leaves minor wisps of lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is molasses, brown sugar, and dark fruits.

T: Taste starts with a molasses and brown sugar flavoring. Middle consists of caramel malts. Finish is all dark fruits - cherry, raisin and plums with a minor hint of chocolate.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly slick mouthfeel.

D: Goes down easily, not too filling, nice kick, nice representation of style. I could sit and enjoy a few of these on a fall evening.

Dark brown with ruby highlights. Creamy and fluffy ecru head that slowly diminishes to a ringed cap. Decent lacing. Aromas of toffee malts, dried figs, dates, prunes. Tastes like rum-soaked dates rolling around in molasses. Not much hop presence; just a bit of stinging florals around the tongue at the beginning. Smoked turkey aftertaste. Boozier than I expected for only 6.7%. Bit of alcohol warming in the throat and stomach. Mouthfeel is huge, creamy, and chewy. For such a big and bold beer, this is quite drinkable. My first doppelbock, and I'll definitely be seeking some more.
