Served in 12 oz. bottle. No date, but they just started bottling this, so it can't be that old. Poured into pint glass.

A: Pours clear, dark amber. Head is medium-hued tan, tight, dense, and two fingers thick. Head sicks around for a bit. Carbonation is pretty low.

S: Malty, grainy smell. Some dark fruits (prune, raisin, etc.) A bit of alcohol comes out of it, as well. Touch of spice is present, too.

T: Strong, bready malt up front. A bit of dark fruit after that. Noble hop presence, metallic bitterness, and graininess brings up the rear. Low bitterness at the end with a touch of alcohol.

M: Low carbonation, medium to heavy mouthfeel. Very smooth and easy to drink.

O: Not enough esters for a dopplebock, in my opinion. Still very, very good, though. Could use a bit more fruit, and it would be on par with some of the best German doppelbocks.

Had this on tap at the Tavern in Libertyville

A- Pours an amber color with one finger of light tan head and a little bit of lacing.

S- Smell is sweet with caramel aromas and roasted sugars. Pleasant, but it doesn't blow me away.

T- Sweet up front with flavors of dried fruit and a roasty finish. Nice malty flavors as well as a bit of nuttiness. Alcohol is well covered here. I would have never guessed it was 8.2% ABV.

M- A smooth and tasty brew that is medium bodied and pretty light on carbonation. A good sipping beer that does not exhaust the taste buds. Would have no problem drinking a few of these.

O- Good beer that I wouldn't mind having again. Doesn't blow me away with aromas or complex flavors, but very tasty nonetheless.

Served in a shaker pint glass at Sheffield's.

Coulda used a generator and portable heater during my walk to Sheffield's today... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset garnet-amber topped by a finger of glowing off-cream foam. The nose comprises sourdough, rye bread, light dried maple syrup, toffee, and a hint of mandarin orange syrup. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a hint of cream. The result is almost akin to some sweet bread. Nice. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a fluid feel, and a sorta/kinda dry-ish finish. Overall, a generally enjoyable d-bock, one I could see enjoying regularly if given the opportunity.

This was an odd brew and based on my experience with it I left wondering if it was in fact infected.
On tap at Clark St. Ale House in Chicago.

It poured with a slight tint of dark red. Had a strong, off-putting aroma. Some sour cherries in the nose underneath the nastiness. Thin bodied, slightly sour flavored with a lot of phenolic notes. I felt like this beer went from a sour to tart to rotting flavor of dark cherries.
