Dark brown body, ends ups being almost black but is really like Okeefenokee swamp water but darker. Light chocolate milk head. Deep malt aroma - chocolate - and slight citric quality. Smooth malt flavors. The taste is earthy and gritty, but the mouthfeel is almost creamy and really smooth. This last part confused me: I picked up some esters in the flavor and by the end of the beer I was convinced I was drinking a weissbock.

Pours a dark ruby color with a huge, pillowy, dark tan head that leaves a nice lace on the glass. Big malty nose with some nice dark fruit qualities to it. Great bicuity maltiness that isn't too overpowering and cloying. There is an almost earthy quality that I assume comes from the hops. Subtle dark fruit qualities are present in the background, including a nice vinous character. Great medium to medium full body without the cloying stickyness that I often associate with the style. The less intense sweetness also makes this beer excellently drinkable for the style. This is probably my favorite of the style so far. It may not be quite sweet enough for some of the doppelbock purists but I could personally drink this one all night.

A sublime doppelbock, with a beautiful chestnut brown color and appropriate fluffy head. It's quite smooth and refined. The hops are pleasantly sharp on the tongue but it's the malts that really give this beer character. Sugary, tangy with vague hints of cinnamon and dark rum, and the requisite doppel undercurrents of oats, apples, potatoes... Thinnish mouthfeel but gets nice and chewy and sticky as it warms. Subdued, mellow but with some real heft. One of the best doppels I have tasted.
