Poured into tulip.
A: Clear, brilliant, reddish chestnut color with a two finger light beige colored head. Pillowy, with fine bubbles, and a collar persists after the head dissipates.
S: Sweet caramel malt with a hint of earthy, slightly spicy hops. Hint of alcohol under the sweetness.
T: Smooth and very malt-forward as expected. Sweet caramel malt flavors drenched in fruity notes. The fruity sweetness hits first with caramel and toffee flavors rising immediately after. Hints of grain and alcohol occasionally, although for 7.9% it's hidden very well. Rum, figs, white raisins, sherry. Somewhat vinous at times. Lightly bitter on the aftertatse. A lot going on here.
M: Great feel to this beer. Full bodied with a nice soft roundness. Slick and slightly viscous. Medium carbonation.
D: This is a great, easy drinking doppelbock.
Overall, a very deep flavor profile, but not quite as much as some others in the category, and devoid of the deeper roasty flavors of some others. But, very, very nice nonetheless. This is an understated beer that doesn't demand your attention - it's very easy to drink and enjoy casually - but if you do pay attention there's a lot going on. Plenty enough to keep my palate entertained.

Appearance- Dark caramel with a slight red hue. Almost no head produced.
Aroma- Big whiff of sweet toasty malts.
Taste- Malt dominates this one with big caramel flavors and dark fruit like raisins and plum.
Feel- For such a malt bomb this is very clean and very drinkable.
Overall- Great beer and while heavy on the malt it works perfectly. Incredibly drinkable especially at 8%, which could make this a little dangerous. Definitely worth a try, and I know Ill be getting this again.
