Was excited to find this 6er. Pours smoothly into my glass with the ambery-red body of a scotch that's been soaking for ages in an oak barrel. Also, a fleeing 3/4 finger head.
Smells sweet and fruity. Makes me think of caramel brittle and gummy peaches. The malt hides underneath this until I swirl the offering around the glass a bit, which also unveils a grain alcohol scent.
Its hits my tongue first w sweetness, followed quickly by dense caramel malt. The alcohol politely bites at the back of my mouth, and I'm left with a fruity sweetness (muted raspberry?).
Great offering as usual. Amazingly drinkable for a Dopplebock of 8% ABV. It's a great sum of parts that made a great companion for a 3 hour tailgate at the Pats game this past weekend!
Looks like a scotch ale, smells like a scotch ale, tastes like a scotch ale! I guess there's a bit more alcohol & it's a bit heavier than a scotch ale, but I would've had trouble blindly categorizing this one.
