Full Sail LTD 06 has a thick, cream-colored head, a dark, red-brown, clear (not hazy), bubbly appearance, with significant lacing left behind. The aroma is of deep and dark-roasted barley malt, sugar, and brown bread crust. Taste is of dark-roasted barley malt, sweetness, and a bit of bitterness at the end. I do not taste coffee or chocolate, and I do not detect any alcohol with this one. Mouthfeel is medium, and Full Sail LTD 06 finishes mostly wet, refreshing, easy drinking, smooth, and very delicious.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: extremely dark amber-brown hue with ruby highlights and no haze to the body. Head is a thin finger of frothy tan foam. Quite good.

Smell: rich chocolate and coffee notes above a bready, yeasty lager base. There's also the vegetal hop aroma that comes along with roasty beers like porters -- not necessarily a bad thing, but not always alluring. So, overall, a little rough, but with a number of good qualities.

Taste: bready and chocolatey right up front; coffee flavors, yeasty flavors and a pretty strong bitterness develop toward the end. The coffee ends up being a high point; this is a lot of character in this beer, if, as in the aroma, it's a little rough around the edges.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: a good example of the style. It's kind of like a lager-yeasted porter -- something about which I can't complain.

I picked this up at Wegmans, enjoyed chilled in a willybecker.

The color is very dark brown almost black with thick tan head of two fingers. Clarity is opaque and bead is fin, retention is very good. The smell is a mix of roasted barley odors which have a coffee-like accent with slight prune and woody aroma with mild fruity somewhat raisin with a tinge of cocoa perhaps from chocolate malt the alcohol is low in the aroma with yeast giving some nice berry esters. The feel is very good almost silky with sweet and moderately full body with semi dry middle with light hop bitterness and mild alcohol in the finish.

This dark lager /bock whichever has a nice flavor of malt which does seem roasty with some fruity raisin and mild herbal hops adding to the woodiness and cocoa flavors from the chocolate malt and crystal type malts I am guessing. The yeast has a subtle berry aspect which adds to the creamy sweet flavor of the malt which works well with the lager smoothness. The flavor is roast -ier as it warms bringing an almost burnt marshmallow type caramel flavor in the finish. Overall I am a fan of this style and this is one of the better examples - bock as Full sail calls it. I like the enhanced roast as it adds to the complexity of some of the caramel malts utilized.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with a half finger light tan head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt and cocoa, hints of coffee. Flavor of toasted and biscuit malt, cocoa, light coffee, dark dried fruit and toffee notes. Good medium body with some creaminess, pleasant. The flavor here is fairly rich and porter-like, in a blind taste, I'd probably identify this as a baltic porter. Flavor is full and interesting and a quite nice mouth feel. Probably the best and my favorite from this series.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a moderate cap of tan head. Retention and lacing are not all that great.

Nose is cocoa laden with some other notes of roast and sweet cream. Nose is most like a porter than anything else.

Taste gets a few more things going - some toast, licorice and some vegetal earthiness. Cocoa is still there, drier than it smelled...not much sweetness here. Mouthfeel is fairly full for an EDL, more bockish if you axe me. Not bad, a solid addition to the enjoyable LTD series, I try and buy a sixer each time I see a new one.

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

Poured from a longneck into a sampler. A semi-aggressive pour produces a 1/4 inch off-white head that dissipates quickly. The beer is a moderately dark yellowish brown with orange highlights. Carbonation seems light to moderate.

Not too much on the nose other than sweet malt. The flavor has a tangy-maltiness with some coffee-like bitterness and dark fruit. Sometimes I get a little chocolate too. There is also a cherry-like tang that lingers in the aftertaste. At times, the effect is reminiscent of a chocolate covered cherry, but with a fairly strong dose of cherry pit bitterness ala Kirsch liqueur. The taste is interesting and fairly complex, but the tang is a bit much at times, and the body is fairly thin for a dark seasonal beer.

This beer would be better if the tanginess could be reduced and the head retention improved. It's drinkable but nothing to write home about.

Another beer with no prior descriptions.

Appearance: another dark beer, that is almost pitch black. Not much head on the pour. A little remains on the top and over the surface of the beer.

Smell: malty beer with no hops.

Taste: Malty taste, a little bit sweetness in there. There is not to much here.

Mouthfeel: Light beer, with some light carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall: okay.

Pours a nice dark brown color, nice carbonation, with a fizzy light tan head, minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is pretty nice of malts, slight chocolate/coffee. The taste is very nice malty, nice notes of chocolate/coffee (even though the bottle sez there is none). Medium body, slightly dry/bitter finish. Overall this is a tasty brew, I would buy again.

A: Pours a small tan head that fades, leaves plenty of lacing over a body of dark molasses brown beer.

S: As promised, smells of mocha. Also dark roasty malts, caramel, cocoa and coffee more so as it warms. Gets better as it warms.

T: Follows smell. Large lager. Doppel bock is pretty much what I'd call it, which is a tasty style. Creamy chocolate and rich, roasty malt lager. Dark grain toast, molasses, charred wood. Sweet but finishing dry. Not cloying. Good roast meat beer. Slightly burnt firewood and drying wool, a winter charmer.

Mouth is medium and pleasant esp due to bitterness in the finish.

A bit salty too. A bit of an odd one. Perhaps too multi-directional. A worth trying experiment, but slightly over done?

almost black but clear, not bad on the head and lacing.

Aroma and flavor definitely do have notes of chocolate and coffee, especially chocolate. There are some toasty notes, and a little bit of dark fruits.

Body is pretty full for a lager, creamy and pretty smooth.

Interesting beer, certainly worth a try.
