look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

DATE: February 17, 2017... OCCASION: Friday relaxing with Shan... GLASSWARE: Celebrator doppelbock pokal... pours a velvet-black body... the head folds to a thin ring of off-white cream... light roasted, punchy malts evoke chocolate and dry fruit... the body is reasonable, untextured, soft at the start and flourishing at the finish.... a beer that sips like it would be fine straight from the body, but could be okay treated in glass... grape, raisin, bitter malts, cereal grains and caramel--a toned-down 40 oz. to some degree, but less harsh...easy-drinking, lively, and weightier than the average lager, but not a bock in the power profile... not familiar with Huber, but having found this one through a mix-twelve, I am no worse for wear...

From notes taken 08/21/16:

Dark reddish brown, but quite clear. Toasty brown head, fine and thick but fizzy and quickly dissipating, although leaving a film for the duration, replenishing itself from the bottom. Aromas of toasted grain, some sourness to it that must be a mediocre bock’s equivalent to dark fruit or toffee notes. All very faint, so can’t call it unpleasant. Flavors of toast, light smoke, toffee, and again sourness. Some spicy and peppery qualities especially toward the finish, blends well with smokiness. A decent palate in the balance, although I would prefer less overt tartness. Medium body, with fine and abundant carbonation just shy of effervescence. Tingly suds throughout with a gulpy finish. I’ve had worse and better.

Bottled and very unusually for me chilled
Pours a coffee body with thick lasting off white head
Caramel and wholemeal bread aroma
Burnt sugar flavour
Slightly thin
Not what I expected really but actually quite better

I drank this out of the bottle, as is my wont. Nice, malty aroma, nice mouthfeel, but not heavy. Maybe I'm prejudiced, because you can buy this for less than ten dollars a twelver every day, but this is an excellent bock. It has the typical chocolate-coffee taste of most bocks, but for the price point this beer simply can't be beat.

A 330ml bottle with no visible BB date. Acquired a while back from a B&M store. The label describes it as a mellow dark brown beer with hints of coffee and cocoa.

A: Poured into a cervoise. A dark reddish-brown hue with light carbonation. Yields a small, off-white head of foam that lasts for a brief moment before dissipating. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of sweet malt with hints of caramel/toffee, barley sugar, mild roasted grain, a twinge of coffee, husks and faint stewed leaves. So-so.

T: Tastes of sweet caramel malt with a mild finish. Notes of caramel/toffee, mild roasted grain, barley sugar, a touch of coffee and faint stewed leaves. Little hop presence or bitterness. Quite sweet, followed by a lingering maltiness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with soft carbonation and average body. A bit thin for the style. Aftertaste of sweet caramel malt and mild toasted grain.

O: Meh - sweet and harmless. Lacklustre looks, while the aroma and flavour are dominated by sugary caramel malt and a hint of grain. So-so body; a tad too thin. A bit too sweet and lacking in complexity when compared with authentic examples. Easy enough to drink but no need to seek it out.

Above average beeer and the price is typically cheap, $10 for a 12 pack of bottles.

Has a caramel-like start, but the roast malts combine at the finish to almost give a tobacco flavor. Bought on recommendation because it was 9.99 for 12. Won't buy again.

Bought a 12 pack from Beers of the World on 1/23/15. Served cold in a mug

Look: Root Beer Brown. Thin head doesn't stick around long

Smell: Brown Bread and Molasses

Taste: very sweet. Just enough Hops to prevent it from being cloyingly so. Tastes like Dark Corn Syrup

Feel: saccharine lingers

Overall: not so good

Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of a touch of cocoa/chocolate with a slightly metallic tinge. A hint of vague hops are there, as is some dark grain.

The taste is of cocoa - slightly metallic. Not too sweet. It has a balanced, abrupt finish. Not much flavor. It almost seems like it goes towards a doppelbock, but a thin one.

Although thin, it's not watery or too fizzy. Although not particularly creamy, either. Still, it's easy on the tongue.

Not bad. A decent dark bock.
