Sampling a cold growler poured into a snifter. The growler was filled up at the brewery. The beer pours a clear mahogany color with some ruby highlights when held up to the light. A fizzy beige head foams up 1 cm and fades to nothing soon after the pour.
The aroma on this beer is lots of malt with grainy malt and brown sugar mixing with some caramel and a bit of dark fruit, plum I think.
First sip reveals an average body with crisp texture and a spacious yet tingly carbonation.
The first sip reveals some caramel and light chocolate notes, I also find a little bit of a roasted malt note. There are no hops anywhere that I can find here, and I also dont get the alcohol anywhere on this beer.
Definitely some lingering chocolate and toasted malt notes too. This is an easy drinking and pretty complex malt centric brew. Glad I got a chance to try this one and hope other maltys, go find it at NEBCO too!

Had on tap a few times at Donovan's Reef in Branford. Rich dark copper color, nearing a brown ale in SRM. Thin white head, decent aroma of bread and lager yeast, some underlying resin. Taste is a smack of caramel sweetness, lots of grain, finishing with some clean lager yeast notes, slightly bitter. Overall I've had better from NEBCO, but this was a decent doppelbock with no complaints.
