An aggressive pour yields minimal tan head over the deepest red body these eyes've yet to witness.

Flavor is nutty malts followed by overripe cherries. When it warms you get some light coffee notes. Ends with toffee notes.

Quite excellent!!

Tastes like shit, but in a good way, like those coffee beans that monkeys shit for premium brew in South America. Nice buzz factor, too!

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a mahogany red with a tan colored head, no head retention, not much carbonation, it's clear, some slight lacing.

A: Roasted caramel, toffee, very malty, no alcohol on the nose.

T: Like the nose it's roasted caramel, toffee, malts, alcohol is well hidden, very drinkable and smooth, semi-dry finish, aftertaste is of roasted nuttiness.

M: Medium bodied with a semi-dry finish, good amount of carbonation.

O: This beer could use a little more punch in the flavor and some more body, but overall it's a tasty and very drinkable beer. Glad to have tried it.

Pours a clear mahogany with an inch to 2 inches of tannish foam.

Sweet smelling with doses of brown sugar and molasses and a candy like caramel.

Some roasted malt added to what I got in the smell and I end up with a great tasting Doppelbock. I don't detect any bitterness and why would I want any? Lol.

Pretty thick mouthfeel with perfect carbonation.

This is SO good!

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown color with some ruby highlights that barley shine through. Upon pouring there is a tiny fizzy white head which fades very fast to leave a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a roasted malt and grainy smell. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of some darker fruit of plum and cherry as well as a bit of a caramel and brown sugar sweetness. A little bit of an alcohol booziness is there as well producing a rather warming smell overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a thick and hearty doughy taste with lots of roast and a great deal of sweetness. The sweetness is initially of a caramel and molasses flavor with some other sweet flavors of a dark fruit nature of plum and fig coming to the tongue as the taste moves on further toward the end. A little bit of a graininess develops later in the flavor profile and is joined by just a hint of a warming rum taste. In the end, with the sweetness seeming to step it up even more with more brown sugar and some cherry coming to the tongue, one is left with a nice sweet and roasty warming flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The beer is quite thick and chewy with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower to average side overall. For the style, rum flavor, maltiness and even the sweetness the feel is very nice, bathing the tongue in all the rich flavor.

Overall – A sweeter doppelbock with lots of nice flavor. At only $5.99 (on sale) for a 6 pack this is an amazingly good buy. Very tasty and certainly a nice winter style warmer.

Malt and fruit nose
Ruby brown with a 1" tan tinted off-white foam cap.
Big malty rich flavors but there is something non-German about the palate.
Medium full body, medium carbonation.

My first from this brewery, from the bottle.
Pours a dark ruby red with a small wispy beige head that leaves lacing and bubbles.

Smell is slightly muted with molasses, caramel, toast, and dark fruits.

Taste is a mediocre blend of dark fruit and brown sugar.

Feel keeps this one from being a complete failure as its well carbed and has a nice slickness that compliments its average taste.

Overall there nothing really wrong with this beer its just rather bland and average.
