Poured this feller into a beveled glass mug. Paired him with some prosciutto wrapped mozzarella. Not much of a head but it left and decent amount of lace. Smelled awesome- caramel, malt, sweet. Taste doesn't have the body or the real malty finish I really like in these beers, but it's pleasant. Hops shine through on this guy more than some other doppels, maybe thats why I think the malt isnt prominent enough? Who knows. Kind of a steal at 6.99 a six pack at specs though, would buy this again.

3.9/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Chicago Bears pint glass (as training camp begins next week).

Aroma: quite subtle melanoidins and not much else. Dark bread/crust notes that are certainly appropriate but rather subdued. A bit of alcohol manifests itself as the beer warms on this July day.

Appearance: rich, deep, brilliantly clear dark reddish-brown: beautiful! Slight yet persistent light tan head.

Taste: melanoidins much more upfront than the aroma. Nice dark bread crust-like roasted malt character that persists through the tasting experience with a finish of alcohol and hop bitterness for balance. Nice!

Mouthfeel: medium-full body with medium carbonation. Nice/smooth velvety character.

Overall: this is a pretty damn good dopplebock. Only knock is the quite subdued aroma. Tasty!

This beer was better than I thought that it would be. I really liked the heavy taste that it uad. I wish that this beer was still at the bar that I go to. I wish that it was still around. If it was still around I know that I would buy myself a case or two.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Perfect amber brown in color with almost no head and a thin white collar. Aroma is caramel malt and toasted nuts. Taste is a good crisp caramel maltiness, toffee, and nuttiness again. Light body and low to medium carbonation. Pretty good, but not what I think of in a doppelbock.

Serving type: on-tap
