This beer was purchased at Jungle Jims for $5.99. The beer was served in a pub glass.

Appearance: The pours a clear amber coloration with minimal head and carbonation. The head was less than one finger on a hard pour and was a light honey white coloration. No lacing was noted on the glass.

Smell: The beer has a ok caramel maltyness. Bits of unidentifable spices drift through the smell.

Taste: Nothing super special noted in this beer. The beer has an upfront hop kick of bitterness. Then the beer goes into a roasted caramel malty taste. The beer finishes briefly peppery in the back of the mouth.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: The beer is full bodied. The beer is ok in smell and taste. The alcohol is well covered up. The beer is an ok beer drinking experience. I will not buy this one again but you could do far worse.

(Served in an Imperial strange)

A- This beer has a clear deep golden amber body with a gentle carbonation of big bubbles. The creamy off-white head soon fades to a thin film floating in the middle of the beer.

S- The aroma is very light and clean with notes of pale malt that have been caramelized in the pot.

T- The faint sweetness starts the fresh crisp pale malt flavor with a pot caramelized not to it. The finish has a smooth soft hop bitterness. There is a very subtle sulfur note but also some fruitiness to the caramel note. The finish has a very faint pepper note but I don't think I could have detected it without reading the description on the bottle.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a watery texture. There is no alcohol finish until the beer warms quite a bit.

D- There is nothing really exciting about this beer. The flavors are soft and one-dimensional with the caramelized taste standing out. The addition of black pepper intrigued me enough to buy the beer but the fact that they had to add the pepper in an attempt to salvage a bad beer was set my expectations low.

Poured from a 22 0z. bomber. Left a one finger head that quickly receded. Color is a medium amber, and most certainly not blonde.

Smell - bready malt, barely hint of citrus.

Taste - bready, douhgy malt, and a little hint of the peppercorns which do not provide heat but rather counterbalance to the malt.
A little citrus at the end. The 8.2 abv is entirely hidden ( which I always think is a good thing), it in no way makes itself known from the taste.

Mouthfeel - full, smooth.

Drinkability - this goes down easy, has a pleasant taste, but not a great one. This is nice, would have another if offered, but would not go out of my way for it.

Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Clear amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet caramel nose. Starts sweet, smooth, malty, some caramel finish is mellow. What is a blonde doppelbock anyway?? $6.20 for a 22oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Thanks to dickinsonbeer for this…
Appears a light transparent orange with scattered spots of white lacing left around the glass.
Smell is of grepeskins, funky flowers, and caramel.
Taste isn’t bad. Same aromas swirling about the palate.
Mouthfeel is mildly creamy with some corn syrup and caramel hanging onto the tongue.

Poured from a cool looking 22oz bomber. Label says it was brewed with black peppercorns:/

Appearance- Color reminds me of a deep amber, almost like cranberry juice. Nothing blonde looking about this beer. Only slight lacing and hardly any head when and no film a few sips later.

Smell- A subdued sweetness of apricots, peaches, and pepper intermingle with some dry hop bitterness that is pleasantly subdued.

Taste- Very light, slightly syrupy flavors easpecially apricots shown through. I was surprised the pepper only made a cameo appearance in the flavor profile of this beer. Overall fruity with some pepper and hops to balance.

Mouthfeel- Definetly not cloying in its sweetness,. This beer went well with my steak and cilantro soup. Also had a very relaxing effect on my dining as well as palate. Just settled everything in my mouth down and let the flavors show themselves.

I am typically not one to buy a dopplebock, but the peppercorn addition intrigued me enough to give it a try. Good dark amber hue, thin head. The pepper did a nice job of playing off both the alocohol and the carmely malty quality of the beer. The body was lightto medium with next to no carbonation. If I were to get another dobblebock, I would go with this one.

Brewed with Black Peppercorns, the label states.
It pours a beautiful light amber color with a sticky fluff head.
The nose is a bit sourish. Low hops. lots of black and white pepper. Like it could have been a maibock, but decided to add more malt.
The taste is sweet heat. It's a interesting duel of rough spice and sweet mollassis duking it out on my tongue.
All in all, a fine addition to this Illinois brewery!
