Huge malt nose. Tons of melanoidains. Caramel toffee. No hop aroma or yeast byproducts. Flavor is sweet and has notes of toast, bread, and toffee. Balance is sweet. Good body. Carb is a little low. Brown in color. Poor head retention and a little cloudy.

Overall, really cool to try this beer. I have been growing this yeast for people for 5+ years. Pretty cool to try beer from the brewery finally.

Pours clear, bronze in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is toasted malt, dark grain, toffee, and light nuttiness. Medium-heavy bodied, sweet--but not overly so, with low carbonation. Makes for a very clean and super drinkable lager. Could have several of these...Really solid beer.

A clear brown beer with a reddish hue that has a nice light tan head that clings to the edge of the glass throughout the consumption. The aroma is malty and nutty. The taste is lightly sweet with a nuttiness and a sweetness that is like the candy part of brittle. Quite an enjoyable beer.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass at the Bier Stube in Moline, IL, 04/01/17. Fluffy head, mild carbonation. Subdued malty sweetness. Soft, utterly smooth mouthfeel. Deceptively drinkable for the alcohol content. The name "Maximator" is intimidating, but this beer is very much at ease. Paired well with a Braunschweiger Reuben and seasoned spatzle!

Good Doppelbock beer. Smell is mostly a pleasant roasted nuts smell. Taste is very consistent from start to finish-- toffee, nuts, coffee, maybe licorice-- and is very smooth. Carbonation is about perfect, and leaves little aftertaste. This is a great example of a Doppelbock, and one of the easier to drink ones. I would buy this more often, but I rarely see it for sale in many of the liquor stores I frequent.

From the imported bottle, it pours a reddish brown with a modest head, eventually diminishing to a strong ring around the edges. Sweet malt in the nose. The mouth gets the caramel malt and licorice/raisin flavor.
Easy drinking doppelbock! Beware!
