On tap at JH. Pours a clear dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt and a touch of alcohol. Flavor of roasted malt, some bready notes, some coffee, smoke, and alcohol. A little harsh palate-wise for me. Not one of my favorite JH offerings.

I was glad to see they brought this one back for the fall. It pours a deep brown color with a tan/beige head. Aroma was very sweet, somewhat nutty, with a slight hint of alcohol.

This is an incredibly complex beer, with tons of sweet caramel malt character up front, low bitterness, and a touch of alcohol to keep things going. It really hits you over the head with its malt profile, in true doppelbock form. Since it was on cask, the mouthfeel was sublime; creamy, rich, and thick, perfect for this type of brew. This is one of my favorite beers from JH. If you see it on the menu, be sure to order up a pint of it.

Poured a deep mahogany hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell was dominated by a sweet caramel malt.

The taste featured a nice caramel sweetness and toasted grain flavor. Good upfront sweetness that dried out nicely at the end.

The mouthfeel was full, with a good chewyness.

Overall a very impressive and complex dopplebock. Very drinkable and good ABV.

Sampled at the LI location, poured a chestnut brown with short lived head. Nutty, malt aroma. Very nice taste, malty with dark fruit. Some sweetness in the finish.

Overall a very respectable dopplebock. I've certainly had better, but to be able to go out and get this fresh and readily available on tap, it's quite a treat
