Served in a tulip glass at the Clybourn brewpub.

Why not go back for more...? This stuff pours a clear sienna topped by a finger or so of cream-tan foam. The nose comprises maple syrup, light molasses, rye bread, and brown sugar. The taste brings the bread to the fore, though everything else continues to swirl about as well...just kinda behind the bread and whatnot... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, though a touch on the bready side for my tastes, this is still a pretty solid d-bock. Good times.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Rosy brown and very thick. Nice thick foam and carbonation.

Smell: Chocolate and some herbal notes that I can't quite put a finger on. Very soothing smell.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Chocolate and coffee notes that get balanced with some floral or herbal hops. Very heavy, yet smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

Drinkability: A good meal in a glass.

Overall: See drinkability.

From my notes. On tap at Rattle 'N Hum about a month ago. Poured a ruby brown color with a disappointing tan head that settled quickly. Fairly light aroma nothing complex, typical meaty dopplebock aroma. The taste is of lightly roasted malt, touch of roasted meat. Again not very complex, average. Quite a light feel for a dopplebock, has tingly carbonation and finishes malty sweet. Overall a bit disappointed in this dopplebock. Has some meaty/malty characteristics but falls short of the standard. Better off sticking with the German versions of the style.
