Looks like root beer in my glass. With a proper pour into a Stein Mug I had a medium thickness, light tan color head that dissapated pretty quickly.

Smell was what I expected. Smell malts. Smells toasty. Smells slightly boozy. Has a pretty sweet bread smell.

Taste was a bit of a surprise! Very sweet and creamy like caramel. Can really taste caramel. Not as toasty as expected. Taste disappears off the tongue fast. Booze is hidden very well.

Had to take a few pretty quick gulps to figure out it has decent body and is really creamy. Sweetness is noticed right away and as my mouth got used to it, it kept getting sweeter. Drank it fast, as taste would keep leaving...

I actually wanted to have more than 1. Unfortunately, I didn't have more. It's a bit different, but in a good way. I'd buy it again. Just not for a while. I'd say it's good. Not perfect or even great. Worth a try for sure

12 oz bottle. Pours light ruby brown with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is toasted bready malts with a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet toasted chocolate and caramel nutty malts with some fruit and a little smokiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice doppelbock. A bit too sweet for me.

I don't normally like sweet malts, which I normally find in bocks. But I tried this on the recommendation of the bartender.

The malts are actually more smoky than sweet, with hints of coffee. I didn't get that sweet malt bite in the back of my throat. It's a pleasant taste.

But it goes away too quickly. You can taste it very fainlty afterward but it kind of evaporates.

The beer is also very flat. The taste is good but if it were up to me it would be stronger and fuller. Not a bad beer, but without a more full, lingering taste, I wouldn't go out and buy a case.

A little bit of a maltiness to it, but not a heavy amount. There is a slight alcohol burn, but it doesn't take too much away from the beer and fortunately doesn't linger for long.

Price: $1.89
Purchased: May 2, 2015

Misc.: Enjoy by Aug. 23, 2015

Poured a reddish, brown, amber semi-clear color with four fingers of khaki tan, frothy head that immediately started dissipating. Minimal wet lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled booziness right up front, followed by caramel, plum, roasty malts, honey nuts, toffee and dark red apple. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste was slightly better than the nose, coming in with rich, creamy, roasty malts, caramel, roasty nuts, plum and very light chocolate. The 8 percent ABV is hidden. (Taste - 4.25)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Smooth finish. (Feel - 4.25)

This beer really grew on me. Maybe I just enjoy the style, but I was really digging it. Wish I had more than one. (Overall - 4.00)

Good doublebock, not in same class as German standards but not a bad try. I'd drink it anytime
