Poured out of the tap with a nice tan head that dissipates completely within a minute. Dark brown in color. SRM 36. First sip hits you with brandy and alcohol vapor. Notes of dark candi sugar give way to a finish bittered by alcohol. No hop aroma. Really syrupy nose. Way too sweet in a sugary way and not a malty way. Not a good example of a dopplebock. A total dessert beer.

On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy dark orange-red with a foamy bone colored head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, and dark fruits. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.
