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.

A - A very active pour yields just about two fingers worth of slightly late to develop rich and creamy khaki colored frothy goodness... Limited retention gives way to a full uniform slightly thick veil of creamy lacing... The color is a slightly murky medium-to-dark mahogany... Mostly still with just a stray carbonation bubble or two seen streaking at the top of the glass... A very nice looking brew and spot on for the style...

S - Malt bomb!!! Yes, please... Bursting at the seems with toffee and caramel goodness... Brown sugar... Fruit cake... Candied pecans... Some light milk chocolate notes... A very subtle smoke presence... Very enticing...

T - As expected this one is all malts through and through... Sweet rich caramel... Brown sugar... Toffee... Fruit cake... Light maple syrup... A faint woody component... There is a subtle but pleasant smoke presence that emerges and lingers on the finish...

M - Light to medium bodied... Very limited carbonation... Smooth and sleek... Perhaps a bit on the thin side of the ledger...

D - A most outstanding Doppelbock which shouldn't be a surprise coming from a fine brewery like Great Divide... The only real constructive criticism is that a bit more of a robust mouthfeel would go a long way to making this offering truly world class... With that aside, this is still an terrific well rounded lager with lots to offer to all those who encounter it...

Love the aroma of this beer. Has good lacing and maintains a minimal cream colored head to the finish. Dark, cloudy amber color with sweet notes on the pallet. The 8% abv is the con on this one. After half pint one starts to taste the alcohol instead of the caramel, toffee flavor. Overall I would recommend this as a two pint wonder on movie night at home. Great taste!
