2.65/5  rDev -24.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Slightly opaque for a beer that pours such a dark color. Has about a two finger head which recess to a respectable amount of lace at the top of the beer. Smells of roasted dark malts with hints of licorice.

getting some familiar flavors and some strange ones you don't expect from a doppelbock. Starts with dark recognizable fruits such as raisins and dates but finishes with lighter fruit flavors such a s grapefruit and oddly enough strawberry. The flavors somehow work together oddly enough.

The beer has a thick and unique body but I couldn't see myself having more than two. Definitely a good brew though

Alabama

3.58/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours an orange-copper color with a light-tan head that vanishes into a thin, lace-free wisp. A sweet-smelling beer: caramel, over-ripe apples, prunes, some rum, yeast and bread. The taste is OK. Malty, brown sugar, roasted grains, a slightly mineral and oaken finish. It a bit more viscous than I like for double bocks, and the carbonation is subtle - just too syrupy for me. The alcohol is hidden nicely on the taste side. Not sure if I would search this one out again.

3.63/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - A very rich dark caramel color with a creamy half inch of head 1/4. Sort of sticky head. Not bad.
S - Sweet caramel with a mild medicinal cherry hint to it. Bready malts and little hops. It doesn't smell bad.
T - Pretty nice starts out with sweet caramel then the cherry pits followed by some bready malts and the finish has kind of a metallic note but fades after a few sips.
M - Kind of close to the style, drinkable yet not chewy. This high gravity version goes down smooth.

Overall this is one of the tastier offering I have had from Erie Brewing so I am glad I picked up the single for 3 bucks.
