NYE bottle share at Proof. Pours a perfect light amber brown. Really good amount of cream colored head. Head and collar last really well. Aroma is biscuity, caramel and some floral hops. Taste is wonderfully the same. Well balanced and delicious. Great medium body and carbonation.

Pours a beautiful clear chestnut with a thick, fluffy, pale buff head. Aroma has a strong and somewhat sweet fruity overtone atop malty and subtle caramel notes. Bold flavor builds fruity, hoppy and caramel notes on a malty core. Fruit sweetness and hoppy bitterness balance each other very nicely. Firm texture has a decent amount of fizz, and goes down smoothly but leaves a fair tingle. Happy Anniversary, Brooklyn!

Interesting dopplebock - Served at a good temperature with a colossal, cream-colored, foamy, frothy, billowy head that settled to a light cover after a bit and some lace. Color is a hazy medium amber. Aroma is firstly hops, resin, citrus, malt, spice, bread. Flavor has the hop back way off, malt come thru a lot more, quite dry and some tang. Body/carbonation are killer. Finish is like flavor, on the short side and very drinkable. Delish beer! Thanks to Pat and Karen for the treat!

Big pop of the cork. Pours a heavenly deep gold that is almost red. Exceptionally thick head of off white bubbles. Tight and going nowhere. The head dissipates slowly and almost gets thicker in the middle. Very nice
Smells faint. Honey, neutral graininess. Syrupy sugar
Taste kind of goes with the smell. Watery up front, spicy and peppery hop with some sweet grain. Honey like sweetness with toasted white bread and mild grassy tartness.
Medium bodied. Thin at first. Clean and crisp finish. Highly drinkable

I was expecting a better beer. It's good, just a bit thin. Did they play it safe? No I don't think so, but this is a slightly aged bottle. Cheers

From a heavy, large bottle, this brew is explosive...the cork literally blew out after emoving the cage. The color is a clear, copper-amber. Thick and lasting foam tops the liquid. Enormous tufts of lace cling to the glass. Clean, malty aroma is notable....a fresh, pale malt scent, backed with a little herbal hops and a hint of yeast. The taste is moderately sweet, vey carbonic, has a notable malt flavor, and lots of mid-tongue bitterness. Firm bitterness through the finish...which has some spiciest and a carbonic bite. The beer hides its alcohol very well. Firm and full in body. This beer is a treat.
