- dopplebock. pkg on 10/28/13. consumed 2/26/14.
A: Soapy thin capping overlays a brazilian cherry colored body. Short retention time, no legs on the vessel, with a moderate display of quick release carbonation.
S: Aroma was cola, rootbeer candy, with a hint of raisiny caramel sweetness.
T: Flavor was raisiny caramel, speciality grains, light chocolate, honey-munich toastedness, with some cola. A light woodsy-flowery hopping arrives late as well a light fade of dry alcohol.
M: Chewy raisiny-caramel body, decent carbonation factor.
O: Overall pretty decent flavor wise, nice finish, decent, and perhaps a few shades light of a good recommendation but nothing to get to finicky about.

A: Pours a nice clear dark ruby with a small light tan head that doesn't linger long.
S: Aroma of dark fruits, raisin with a definitive maltiness. There's a bit of a spicy, earthy component that comes through with a nice rich caramel and bread crust backbone.
T: Nice full malt flavor with dark fruits and caramel with a bit of chocolate in the background. There are pleasant earthy, bready tones with a pronounced sweetness, although not cloying. A light alcohol flavor is detectable but not overpowering A medium low carbonation is present.
M: There's a medium/ full body to this brew with a bit of a pleasant silky mouthfeel.
O: I like this doppelbock. It lacks the complexity of say... a Celebrator but it's a very nice beer. I would like to see it a hair bit dryer but I would buy this again.

Pours a dark amber, but it's cherry red when held next to a bright light. A 2 finger tan head recedes quickly to mostly a ring around the glass.
Aroma of honey and toasted malt, caramel and dark fruit. Some light metallics very early.
Caramel, dark fruit and toasted malt in the flavor as well. Very sweet, especially at first, with a bit of cloy that quickly moderates. The bitterness seems just a bit harsh, but it also moderates somewhat as the beer warms. Alcohol is apparent.
Rather thick in feel. A bit sticky or syrupy. I didn't see any carbonation bubbles, but there is a definite bite. The alsohol probably contributes to that as well. There's a significant burn on the way down.
Not at the top of it's class, but a pretty good brew. There's enought going on to keep it interesting. I'd try it again.
