3.9/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

bottle code: 069C0750

eyes...
2 full fingers of head on an easy pour, caramel brown hue, carbonation takes its time traversing up the backbone of malt to keep the head afloat, this displays both lacing and legs, a really nice looking brew, if this were a photo it would be a good example for other beers of the style to adhere

nose...
dry and malty with hints of molasses. a touch of bready oats, a tiny waft of chocolate underneath. nothing overwhelming but very nice.

taste etc...
pretty close to the nose, drinks very smoothly, the grainy flavor is quite present, the last time I had this I remember the malts being a bit more .. chewy. The background flavors are quite nice, almost a slight burnt chocolate molasses thing happening, not huge, just sitting there on the bready blanket. This one drinks a bit thinner than most DBs but that is not automatically a bad thing, it also is not as heavy handed on the ABV as others. The carbonation is just right floating the brew over your palette.

verdict?
a very smooth middle of the road DB, do you need monster beers every moment of every day ? or a beer with really nice character that is also easy drinking ? I think some overhanded beers lack the subtlety displayed here. A solid beer.

This pours a dark brown color with a thick, foamy beige color. The aroma is very bold with malts. The taste is sweet, complex, and malty. There is a decent amount of carbonation mixed in with the hints of fruit and dried fruit. Very interesting taste and quite well made.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Beautiful dark auburn color with a ruby glint. Plenty of foam in the big chalice. Rich, smooth, and endlessly malty. It may be sticky on the countertop but it's a pleasant mouthful of suds with that warm Sugar Daddy taste. Aroma is pure caramel and hot grainy baked pastries.

Sweet like a pecan roll but tangy with the bitter edge of hops and the dark roasted grains. Flavors of unfermented malt with a whiff of alcohol and the beery tang. Marvelous dark caramel flavor that goes on and on. This must be one of the best sweet beers ever devised.

This really defines the style of the massively malty German beer. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

4.01/5  rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours black, some ruby hues when held into the light. One finger beige head, low retention, but long lasting sticky lace.
Smell is not so strong really. Surprisingly subtle roasted malts. Nuts, dark chocolate, faint toffee and raisin.
Taste is stronger than the smell, with nice burnt caramel, milky chocolate, molasses, not extremely sweet, but just enough. It's crisp from some nice juicy plums, dark grapes and figs, also citrus zest, which keeps the nutty earthiness from the nose way in the back. Sweet coffee towards the finish, along with some German hoppiness (tiny hint of metal too).
Medium carbonation, velvety smooth. Warm alcohol. Clean almost dry finish.
A great refreshing doppelbock, lacks the "heaviness" of others and is really quite tasty.

330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Very dark brown color, deep ruby tints to the light. Light beige froth shows good retention. Caramel & sweet toasted malt aromas, chocolate & extract of licorice hues as well as notes of prune & dats to the nose. Creamy & roasted upfront. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Dense texture & silky palate. Chocolate & licorice all over. Sweet toasted finish & fruity aftertaste with hints of burnt malts. Good job !!
