4.55/5 rDev +17%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
pours dark caramel with a 1" tan head. Zero head retention & lacing
Smell: Big breadiness and spice (peppery)
Taste: Malt, vanilla, and peppery (like a dick cheney 28 gauge shotgun blast). Dryness, slight nutiness, some hop bitterness and alcohol on the finish
MF: Slick& chewy , good carbonation
Pretty drinkable, but I consider this the low end of the dopplebock spectrum abv-wise. yummy just the same! Just didn't quite come together from the crtical beer drinkers's view point. Enjoy!
Serving type: bottle
