4.2/5 rDev +8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Mahogany color with thick, off-white head. Aroma of malt, dried fruits. Deep, complex flavors of caramel, prunes, raisins. Residual sweetness, but drier than expected (for a doppelbock). Very low hop bitterness, but nevertheless a long finish. Moderate carbonation.
Overall, this is a very rich, restrained beer. I'm not a huge a fan of the style, usually, but this was excellent.
Serving type: bottle
