Served in a snifter at The Tap in Indy.

Arrives with a light, frothy, oatmeal-colored head. Blackish body with brown and amber hues but an opaque representation. 4.25

Aroma is faint but hints at brown sugar and molasses. 3.5

Rich in flavor, there's caramel, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla and an oaken, bourbon-tinged finish. On taste, this would be a gem. 4.25

Alas, the feel is too carbonated and prickly and soda-like. Not enough to ruin the beer but it does drink lighter than ideal and without the creamy, full-mouthed feel that I expect from a doppelbock. 3.75

Flavor here is great but for a BBA doppelbock that you envision warming you on a winter night as you slowly sip it, this can disappoint.

On tap at Apex. Very unique spicy caramel and oak nose. Same with the taste along with some coconut and light bourbon. A bit thin on the mouthfeel but otherwise awesome.
