Poured from a can into a pint glass. Clear gold-brown color, no real head or lacing. Smell is sweet and ready. The tastes has a lot of caramel notes. Probably not one to repeat but not bad.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours rich mahogany with a frothy khaki head that settles to a light layer and leaves a little thin lacing.

S: Dark fruit, toffee, bready slightly toasty malt, and a touch of spice.

T: Dried fruit, raisins, dates, plums, and figs, big toffee sweetness, slightly toasty bready malt, nutty, and subtle spice.

M: Sticky full body, moderate carbonation.

O: A little sweet, but overall a pretty decent doppelbock.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Look: A copper - reddish color. Decent head retention. Only about a one-finger head. Very clear. 3.75

Smell: Almost no Aroma. Hints of German grains and yeast. Some caramel notes. 3.25

Taste: There’s some bite up front but not much. Sweet and malty. Caramel and tobacco. Some smokiness. Needs more hop bitterness. 3.25

Feel: Medium-llight. Thin. Slick. Flattens out quite a bit.

Overall: It's an ok beer. The flavor is decent, but is just seems pretty light / watered down. It is a higher ABV, but just seems weak and not powerful like many others.

Feel. Medium to light. Send slick and flattens out
Overall. It’s an okay beer

This beer pours a clear brown with an average head. The aroma offers up toffee, caramel, green apple, chocolate, white plum, and nutmeg. The flavor is very fruit - plum and raisin mainly - with chocolate, graham cracker, honey, banana and fig. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy with a medium body. Overall this is a delicious mix of fruity and chocolate tinged flavors - just a very easy to love beer.

Pours to a head that laces and lasts. Dark brown/ruby color. Aroma is delicious sweet malts (honey, nuts, molasses, toffee) no hops to discern. Flavor is malty and sweet. Tangy finish. Low bitterness and no distinguishing hop character. They are there but blend into the background. Feels great. Satisfyingly malty. Love this :)

At first smells a like a sweeter 211 type malt liquor. Then it tasted a bit chocolatey. But that subsides quickly and eventually just tastes like a spiffed up Hurricane. If you let it sit and breathe for a bit, the flavor comes back and then it comes out swinging tasting/smelling like a bolder Newcastle.

Dark amber body; dense, creamy head. Malty, sweet aroma; warm caramel. Much like the smell, malty with a caramel presence; balanced blending of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Heavy body; rich and warm.

A decent doppelbock yet without any distinctive qualities.

Color like a light cola. Minimal head. Minimal bubbles.
Floral and like a baked heavy sweet bread.
Brown sugary sweet maltiness. Plum and raisin fruits. Hint of cola. Just the right tart.
