look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Surprisingly hazy (for a doppelbock) dark golden-amber. Very retentive finger and a half of beige frothy head. Thick walls of lacing once the head finally dissipates.

Very fruity and malty. Thick molasses with a ton of dark fruity esters. Figs. Brown sugar. Rich malts.

Very grainy/bready flavor. Syrupy and mildly cloying, though not overbearing. Tons of brown sugar and molasses. Slightly toasted/burnt. Dried dates. No astringency or sign of hops.

Medium body and moderate carbonation. Creamy but slightly slick mouthfeel.

Overall this is a great Doppelbock. I had a Weihestephan Korbinian last night which likely taints my palate, and this does not quite stand up to that or the Ayinger examples. Nonetheless, this is a very solid and excellent beer, but not quite up to its fellow Munich counterparts.

Warm and malty. Great copper color. Smooth. Biscuit and bread.
