Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color dark brown, near black; head is tan, presents dense and thick at near 1 inch, it then dissipates to a ring and bubbles, good lacing on the glass.

Smell is subdued for a beer of this strength, some light roast and then some light chocolate, touch of earthy hops. Raisins and maybe plum notes develop as it warms.

Taste has a heavier roast presence than most doppelbocks, its not overpowering but it is noted and the forward malt. Other malt flavors are a subtle chocolate, light toast and maybe some caramel. Raisin like flavors are starting to develop. Hop bitterness and flavor is clean and complementary, not overpowering

Mouthfeel is a crisp, but maybe this beer is a bit young and the carb level a touch higher.

Overall, a solid brew - it needs to warm to acceptable tasting levels to get the full experience as some of the flavors are tamed by the colder temps. A touch more roast presence than other doppelbocks

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Two and a half fingers of tan head with some big coarse bubbles on top that need scraped off. Retains phenomenally anyway. Almost opaque red-black color. Laces okay, too. 4.25

Smells richly malty. A little rum raisin, some dark roastiness, heavy toffee goo, medicinal notes, and a kiss of tobacco. A little chocolate, a little cherry. Somewhat on the sweet side, but it delivers.

Richness is compromised only slightly due to some bigger bitterness. Stale chocolate, big roast, fermented dark grain, hints of black cherry and blackberry, and caramelized sugars make up a busy flavor. A little coffee in the flavor. Not bad.

Body has some richness, but it's still relatively easy to drink. Some booze in the feel, but the carbonation is appealingly obvious.

A good doppelbock. I'm still a sucker for the Germans.
