Reviewed from notes.
Pours out a clear, deep reddish mahogany color with a single finger of sand colored head that lasts for several minutes and leaves fairly decent loops of lacing behind on the glass. Lighter side of medium body and carbonation levels.
Smells of chocolate and yeasty bread with just the right amount of herbal and earthy hopping to accent the sweet aroma. Taste is centered around toasted bread in front with medium amounts of nuttiness and lesser quantities of chocolate and yeastiness in the background. As the glass warms, the herbal and earthy hopping aspects gain enough volume to make one of the more strikingly dry finishes I've ever tasted in a Doppelbock. In fact, overall this beer seems to be balanced more towards being savory and bready than being about caramel and toffee, and I'm totally OK with that. However, on the other hand, there is only the merest ghost of a presence of dark fruits in either nose or flavor, which could stand to be somewhat bigger relative to all the other elements.

Served in a snifter.
Appearance: Clear red amber with slights haze from the pour. Off-white head maybe 1/3" with a hard pour and light bubbles to its frame.
Smell: Very light maple hop scent. Comes and goes.
Taste: Can you say awesome? Very good relaxing bitterness offset with a bit of sweetness to it. Has maple syrup likeness to it that is very addicting and perfect for this weather we're having.
Mouth: Medium body, feels light with averse at best stickiness.
Overall: i haven't read a review yet for this beer but I can see the reviews being a over the place. Definitely more of a warm weather beer, really doesn't need tweaking and honestly I would be glad to buy another bottle. Salud.
