look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, dark brown color. One inch head of a pale tan color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of slight alcohol, slight dark citrus, sweet malt, and a hint of roasted malt. Fits the style of a Doppelbock. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp with an average carbonation level. There is an almost 'sticky' feel. Tastes of sweet malt, slight pale malt, strong grain, slight alcohol, and hint of hops. Overall, very sharp feel, with an astringent quality. Good appearance, but lacking in body and aroma.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- A ever so slightly cloud, dark brown liquid. The head is thick and creamy looking. Kind of reminds of of a nice A&W with a little more head retention.

S- Lots of malt and caramel. A little bit spicy, but not much. A little bit of glue maybe? There really isn't a lot here, which is kind of surprising considering the alcohol content.

T- Ah... there's the alcohol. Very very malty, and then the booze settles in. Don't get me wrong, it's not an astringent alcohol, just noticeable. This is nice and sweet, but there is not a lot of depth to it. The beer does open up a tad as it warms though.

M- Very clean and crisp on the finish but fairly smooth in the mouth. The alcohol does become a bit more hidden as I drink more of it.

D- This ended up going down at a pretty decent clip. For how much alcohol there is in this, it is fairly well hidden. There are better doppelbocks out there, but this is an interesting take on the style and worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark brown, almost black with ruby highlights. Head is off white with very little lacing.

Smell is subdued. Roasted malt with residual sweetness. Hints of chocolate.

Taste is dark malt and substantial nutty flavor. Hints of chocolate, light fruit. Enough earthy hops to bring balance.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Not as chewy as would be expected of a dopple.

Not a bad beer. Certainly worth a try. There are no off flavors, but nothing to make this one really great either. Very balanced, and I found the woody, nutty flavors interesting.
