A giant four-finger head erupts when quickly poured into a 16 oz glass stein. Slowly fading to an inch or so, the head is a tan color with good lacing. The brew is a deep, dark red-brown with enough clarity for light to penetrate.
The aroma is a little grassy with some alcohol esters tantalizing the nostrils. Taking a swig, the alcohol becomes more apparent and vaporizes somewhat with the heavy carbonation. Backed up with strong malts and a hefty dose of hops, the intense mocha flavor is equal to the high gravity and leaves a hint of vanilla after the bitterness of the hops starts to recede.
Not an everyday beer, this is a big beer that lumberjacks and other burly types would probably enjoy with some roast boar.

Reviewed from notes
Appearance: mahogany to black. a finger of a tan head, leaves behind a slight lacing after slowly fading. Opaque.
Smell: large whiffs of chocolate, slight variation from lighter to darker chocolate. some breadiness and lager yeast sweetness
Taste: opens up with chocolate and does develop into much. some lager yeast.
Mouthfeel: no lager cleanness to it. fairly watery feel
Overall: an overly chocolate and most likely not well fermenated doppelbock. no cleanness and way too one sided.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a clear deep brown with garnet highlights and a modest tan head that dissipates to a thin foam layer.
Aroma is toasted malt, nutty, with a sweet caramel component. There's a hint of dark fruit character.
Flavor is malt dominant, of course, but a touch scorched initially. Fairly sweet, the alcohol is potent and counters the overly toasted malt. The dark fruit is subtle, and sherry-like. Cardboard surfaces late.
Body is fairly full, with minimal carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
The charred and fruity characters are offputting. Either this beer has changed or my palate has. Used to really like it. Seems oxidized.
