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.

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.
