Pours a deep caramel amber with a heaping head of of-white carbonation. I get spoke-like, spiderwebby lace on my GB25 glassware. Great appearance!

Nose is caramel malts, some spice, and nice sweet roastiness.

Taste is, again, very much a roasty, malty, semi-sweet melding of dark malts, with a chewy caramel or toffee character dominating. There’s also an element of nuttiness in the flavor, which is perfect for a chilly snow day. This is everything a solid doppelbock should be. The body seems a tad light, but the flavor does not suffer. A solid drinking bock, and at a strong 7.5%, this is a deceptively enjoyable brew. Bravo!

I had this back in early December in San Diego, and didn't take notes. The thing I remember most is that it tasted very similar to Sam Adam's Winter Lager to me, with a slightly fuller body. Overall, very good taste and mouthfeel. Very enjoyable for an everyday doppelbock.

On tap at the DC location near the Verizon Center. Pours a dark brown with plenty of light showing through and a small brownish white head. Aroma of some light roast and molasses sweetness but not much else. Flavor follows with watery sweet malts, a hint of roast, some dirty lager finish, then leaving some surprising sweet citrus on the palate. Light to medium bodied, not super crisp but goes down easy enough with adequate carbonation. Overall not exciting but not terrible.
