A- Dark brown in color with ruby highlights. Persistent creamy/frothy tan head. Surprisingly murky for a lager.
S- Richy toasty/malty character that is unsurprising for a dopplebock. Some caramel character as well with dark fruits such as prunes and figs. Small amounts of alcohol apparent.
T- The rich malty character dominates from start to finish. Toasty malt comes through the strongest as the dark fruits apparent in the smell linger in the background. A nutty and toffee character is noticeable in the middle as the finish of the beer once again returns to the strong malt with small amounts of alcohol.
M- Medium-full body with a creamy carbonation and slight alcohol presence.
O- A great dopplebock. Missing some of the overall quality of the best dopplebocks, but still worth the money.

Split with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great a nice dark dark brown clearish hue with a thin head that left a light halo.
S - Aromas of banana, clove, sweeter malts. Rather straightforward, traditional.
T - Taste is nice caramel, banana, clove, sweeter malts. Light fruity esters. Very traditional and well, German.
M - Mouthfeel is nice, lightly carbonated, kind of sticky.
O - Overall this beer was alright, very cut and dry. Good example, true to the style.
