Growler poured at the brewery on Tuesday, opened and consumed on Friday.
Pretty good growler pour: dark brown with a decent white head. Smells very mellow and sweet--not really zippy nor alcoholic, which are the two nodes I look for most in a Doppel. Still, a nice malt profile, even if it ain't too aggressive.
Tastes great. Sweet caramel runs parallel to zippy bock malt and they both dovetail into a sweet, spicy finish of european hops and lightly alcoholic yeast. Nodes of brown sugar and biscuit dough are found throughout. Most importantly, it avoids the common d-bock pitfalls of being too burny, too thick, or cloyingly sweet. This is a big, strong, interesting beer that has absolutely no off nodes. It's maybe just a tiny bit tame for the style, but it's still pretty big.
Serving type: growler
