More bottles from my latest Philly run. I am feeling adventurous today and may try to eradicate the bottle backlog that has been an albatross since school started back.

This poured nicely, forming two fingers of foamy, mocha-brown head with good retention. Color was a deep-brown with garnet/ruby highlights. Nose was malty sweet, but subdued. I have had some in the style that were syrupy sweet. For me, less sweet = a good thing. Mouthfeel was big and full to the point that I thought that I had a spoonful of pudding in my gob. Whoa! This was extremely smooth with faint tastes of coffee and chocolate and some heat. I got my first swallow down and a moment later, it hit me with the kick of a Missouri mule. Finish was likewise semi-sweet and I also got lingering flavors of salt and licorice. I have not been wildly impressed with Atwater beers up until now, but this was a very good beer.

Poured into a glass mug.

A: Dark brown with two-finger, off-white, creamy head that lasted more than a few minutes. Good lacing.

S: Dark fruit and roasted malt.

T: Light sweetness and light bitterness. Dark roasted malt. Mild flavor though, and not much aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

O: The taste was a bit of a let down to me. Nothing much there really. Too mild.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep dark brownish black with hints of amber and a lot of rising bubbles. About three fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A roasty and fairly sweet aroma. Dark roasted malts with hints of burnt toast, caramel, toffee, chocolate,and coffee. Some brown sugar, rye spice, and strong hints of dark fruits including, plum, fig, raisin, and cherry. Some earthy hops and a little citrus hop twang. A very toasty smelling beer.

Taste: Like the aroma indicates, a roasty and sweet taste driven by dark malts. Roasted malts with a taste of dark bread, toast, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and coffee. Also some brown sugar and a rye like spice. Big undertones of dark fruits including raisins, plum, fig, and a little dark cherry. Some earthy hops add a little balancing bitterness. Very roasty and bready taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy and smooth. Has a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A solid double bock here. Sweet and roasty but balanced.

A - It pours out almost black when held up to the light you can make out the dark brown on the edges of the glass. It produced a one finger khaki colored head with supper tinny bubbles remaining on the edge of the glass. Marked this down because toward the end the head completely died off.

S - This one produces a nice dark malt smell with a bit of a woodiness. In the back there is a faint dark fruit smell with some cherries. Nice smelling beer.

T - On the taste I get the dark malty-ness right away, along with some anise, raisins, wood, and earthiness. Not much of an aftertaste on this one either. This beer is really smooth with no alcohol on the flavor. You can feel it in your stomach but that is it.

M - On the mouth this one is pretty light. Easy to drink but for an 9% beer I'm expecting more body then this. If I wanted a session brew I would have not picked up this one with such a high abv. Carbonation was right in the beginning but has since died down at a fast pace. hmm.

O - This beer is very nice but could use a little more body in my opinion. Overall a good beer and one worth a try. Cheers.
