3.59/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Rolled the dice on this one paid 2 bucks for a vintage 2009. Here we go!

A - I am baffled after 4 years it still has some fizzy carbonation. It does fizz out rather quick though into a thin lace ring. Color is a very dark hazy brown with sediment left at the base of the bottle.

S - Smell is pretty mild with some soy sauce and candied dark fruits mostly plum and fig. Not very sour or offending in any way.

T - Damn I guess at this point it's very oxidized with cardboard and metallic notes then comes the cherry sourness followed by just a hint of dark fruits. After a while I can almost convince myself it has a caramel flavor to finish the glass.

M - Light to medium not a bad dopplebock.

Overall after hearing this one costs around 10? dollars a bottle so for two dollars its ok. Not really the best just not terrible.

3.21/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

Light tan head that fades away fast. Color is a murky caramel hued brown.

Flavors of dark fruits, molasses, raisins, caramel, and chocolate. A lot of malts. Some grassy hops. Bready. A bit of toffee.

Mouthfeel: Fairly dry. A decent amount of carbonation. Medium to full bodied.

Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this one. It has a bit of a roasted flavor in the finish and it ended kind of dry. Good flavors, just bad mouthfeel/finish.
