Virginia

3.4/5  rDev -13%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a deep copper with a good amount of tan head.

S: Really nice aroma of malt with what appears to be a bit of pilsner. There's an underlying citrus hop at work but it's in the background. Dark fruits are prominent with a raisin sweetness in the forefront.

T: Not a lot going on in this doppelbock. A bit of caramel sweetness but it's subdued. It's actually a bit more balanced than I would have expected and a bit one dimensional. I would expect a tad more sweetness and a bit more caramel or complex dark fruit notes. It just doesn't linger on the palate long enough to have much of an aftertaste. I would almost venture as to say it's a bit bland for a doppelbock. It does have very mild spice, maybe a tiny bit of orange peel in the background and a little alcohol burn which is nice.

M: Medium bodied with a low carbonation.

O: I find this doppelbock a bit too thin for my taste. It's somewhat one dimensional characters leave a bit to be desired. The bitterness is about right but it lacks the malty hit I like to see in a doppelbock. Overall I would choose this over any mass market product and it does fit the style, just not as exciting as I would have liked. May be one of the few doppelbocks I;ve ever tried that I would almost consider a session beer. I like it.

3.8/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Nice amber brown color. Spotty lacing. Mild head.

S: Light chocolate notes. Moderate yeast aroma.

T: Choclate roasted malt. Nice medium body. Moderate yeast, Belgian yeast maybe? Very pleasant all around. Hides the 8% abv.

M: Medium body. Sweet, chocolatey and roasty.

O: I really enjoyed this dopplebock. Having tried a few here in Germany, I prefer it on top off all the heils, pils and export beers (lager) I have been drinking.
