This beer was purchased at the Dilly Deli for $6.99. The beer was poured into a pub glass.

Appearance: The beer has a chestnut coloration. The beer has a creamy off white colored head. The head was about two fingers high. There was absolutely no head retention on this beer.

Smell: The beer has a sweetened nutty malty breadyness. The beer has a spicy yeast and alcohol combo.

Taste: The beer has a bready nutty caramel taste. There is a nice spicyness vaguely peppery. The alcohol joins to help create a further zing.

Mouthfeel: The beer has a creamy medium body. The taste has a pleasant nutty aftertaste. This is a nice dopplebock. I enjoyed the beer and would definately not hesitate to drink this on again.

Sampled on 4/29/06 at the brewpub.

Poured a medium to dark brown with not much head.

Smell was somewhat sweet with hints of fruit. Taste was similar. with little alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel was moderately thin for this style of beer but the drinkability made up for it.

Pours dark amber, good head for a cask. Bready, and yeasty up front in aroma. Flavor comes through very bready as well. Mouthfeel is nice, a good change of pace with the cask for a lager. It's full and lush. Drinkablity? Goes down very smooth... like Red Tulip, and the alcohol is well masked.
