3.8/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

I reviewed this double bock the other night while sitting down and listening to Brahms' Symphony No. 1. I have heard before that one should not listen to music while reviewing beer, as your sense of hearing may in fact color your sense of taste. This is understandable, but a little background music wouldn't change much in the quiet context of my room.

A: This bock was a clear deep golden color tinged with ruby. The off-white head was fluffy, but did not last long at all.

S: It had a sweet malty aroma, with a very subdued spicy hop aroma that was slow to arrive.

T: The first sip had a sweet malty taste which is instantly joined by the warming alcohol content. I felt like there was a caramel taste to the malt. The hop flavor was not strong, as should be in a traditional doppelbock. It ends the way it started...sweet!

M: The mouthfeel is kind of heavy. I guess it could be considered "chewy." The level of carbonation is perfect throughout most of the glass. It thins towards the end, but that didn't bother me at all.

D: It is a very drinkable beer. The relative high alcohol content means that I would stop after a few, but I would always revisit this beer.
