I had this on tap at Uncommon Ground today for easter brunch.

Appearance- light copper body with a half finger of white head. Some lacing along the glass.

Aroma- Very sweet roasted malt aroma. Sort of nutty and fruity. No hop aroma here but with this style that seems fitting.

Taste- Very sweet and bready. I nice finishing bitterness. Slight roasty and caramelly near the end.

Mouthfeel- Nice carbonation feel. Not too heavy, actually a little thinner than I would expect for the style.

Drinkability- Seriously? This beer went down so well. I didn't even know that it was a 8plus ABV beer until I got home. They didn't give the alcohol or gravity ratings for any of there beers. The alcohol was hidden so well a few of these and you would be buzzed. I would love to see this in bottles soon but for now if I see this on a draft list I will definitely reach for it again.

Had on tap at Poor Phils in Oak Park tonight...

Pours a dark ruby brown, nice clarity with a one finger white head that sticks around and leaves some lacing as I drink...

Smell is sweet, roasted malts...

Taste is pretty sweet up front, malty with a slight bittering in the finish to balance things out. Very typical straight forward Doppelbock taste, Metro did a good job brewing to style...

Mouthfeel is thinner than expected but warming and malty enough for me. Carbonation is present throughout, very good all around...

Drinkability is high, alcohol starts to show the more you drink but it is hidden pretty well. Medium bodied with good carbonation...

I had this on tap into a traditional pint glass.

The beer is very light and clear, almost amber with a very light tan head. The retention and lacing are ok.

The aroma and tasty are very malty, way to sweet for my liking for this style. Its also very one note and boring.

The feel is bad very watery, not drinkable at all, couldn't even finish my pint.

On tap at the hop leaf. Speaking of leavers the beer is tobacco red with a tan head that lasts a good amount of time. One of three small 30 barrel batches of doppelbock from metropolitan brewing I'm told.

Smells like freshly roasted grains with a touch of sugared coffee. The nose is extremely fresh which might have something to do with the brewery being less the 0.5 miles down the street.

Taste is sweet, caramelized and is a fresh crushed grain bomb. Coffee mixed with nutty coco and a nice steady bitterness that seems to come from the coffee but is more likely from subtle hop additions. Very smooth and very tasty.

An almost perfect mouthfeel. The hops bitters enough to compliment the sweeter rich kilned grains. Lightly carbonated with a touch of dryness in the finish. I'm said to hear that this is a seasonal and only available locally. Cheers to metropolitan brewing for tackling all those traditional German styles. I hope there is still some around next time I'm up in Chicago.

On tap at the Maproom. Served in a goblet/tulip glass. $5 for the 14.75oz pour.

This beer is a crystal clear glowing orange. There is a finger of white head that fades to a thin collar and layer of bubbles. Streams of bubbles come rising up to the top. It looks very inviting.

The nose is full of roasted malts and a little booze.

The first sip follows with a large dose of roasted pale malts and some earthiness and nuttiness come through as well, Very warming and the abv% is hard to pick up on. It's extremely clean and straight forward.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a lively level of carbonation. Sticky and semi-dry.

Kudos to Metro for brewing a great dopplebock. I could really cozy up to this beer this winter. I look forward to many more glasses.
