Rich creamy head with bouquet of wheat malt, black current, clove, and apple. Deep full flavors of caramel and chocolate malt balance with hops for a smooth warming character. The finish is smooth and malty leading to a subtle alcohol and dark caramel finish.

    A medium to full bodied ale that had flavors of chocolate, roasted malt and pine. Initially I smelled chocolate, ripe fruit and roasted malts. This black colored body ale had a dark brown head that fizzled out quickly. Definitely the best Ramstein beer I have ever had.

    NorCal December '07 tasting - In many ways, this beer reminded me of Aventinus, which is a good thing. Maybe not quite as complex and rich as it, but still an outstanding beer just the same. A big aroma of chocolate, cherries, molasses, sweet malts and bready yeasts (sort of reminds me of a scented candle you might light for Christmas). Appearance is dark brown in color with an off-white head. Flavor is quite excellent with the noted cherries, chocolate, cloves, and allspice. Supple carbonation makes this beer outstanding.

    Bottle courtesy of Sammy: Poured a cloudy dirty brown color beer with a small foamy head with limited retention and no lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with some very subtle dry fruits. Taste of sweet malt is domination with again some very subtle dry fruits and some light alcohol notes. Body is full with some limited filtration and some low carbonation. Not exactly sure what to make of this beer and wouldn’t mind having another shot to rate this beer.

    Poured a dark brown color with red edges small head. Aroma was of yeast wheat and cloves and some other spices in there. Flavor was much the same. Very well balanced with just the right amount of alcohol hotness in there. Good Good beer.

    I had Ramstein Winter Wheat on tap at the Grey Lodge. It poured a medium brown colored body with a decent size tan head. A sweet and spiced aroma. The taste was very interesting. I noted chocolate, spice- mainly clove, malty sweet, slight alcohol presence. This was a good seasonal offering.

    Brewtopia’04. Big and malty nose; alcohol front. Bubblegummy. Banana yeastiness. Rivals many German doppels. I was too busy chatting with Dave (MaiBockAddict) to write a wordy description, but I did jot these legit numbers. Excellent beer.

    Mahogany black with a faded khaki head that’s airy and fleeting. Licorice in the aroma with a slight bubblegum ester note backing it up. There’s a lot of complexity in the flavor with chocolate, an interesting cross of tea and coffee, charcoal and more of those bubblegum esters.

    You have to hold this one to the light to realize this is a deep,deep dark chestnut brown. Hints of clove,nutmeg and black licorice meld with a big back bone of roasted malt. Definately has a wheaty tartness resembling Granny Smith apples. Nice full body but very light on the tongue lending to a ridiculous drinkability at 9.5% I could drink this one on a daily basis if it were only available in California.

    One of several beers I was really looking forward to getting a hold of during various beer swaps last weekend (coinciding with the San Diego Strong Ale Fest). This was submitted to the Holiday Beer Exchange by our Out-Of-Town'er guest, Dave from "Jorsey"!

    And this, in turn, is a mighty fine beer. Looks like a Porter or Stout, but that's where all similarities with more tradional dark beers ends.

    Slight banana/clove in the nose -- definately has it's wheat-beer roots. But oh so nice to the nose, kinda fruity, and quite complex and intriguing.

    Realively light in the mouth for such a massive beer..., surely this can't be 9.5%ABV, can it? Extremely drinkable, that's for sure.

    Hints of fruit (banana) in the flavor profile, with the additional bonus of a lovely, velevety silkiness in the middle and finish. Aftertaste dry and quite pleasing, too.

    I normally shy away from Bock-style beers, especially having had some truly awful weizenbock-type beers in the past. But this Doppelbock is a great beer for sippin' after a cold and blustery day down on the waterfront. Hell, this would be a very nice beer to enjoy any other time of the year...! Recommended.

    Looks like a porter, but doesn't taste like one! Slightly fruity aroma w/ a flavor of tart cherries & brown bread. Velvety on the tongue w/ a slightly sweet finish. This is a great brew. Thx herbjones
