4.18/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A - Dark amber with a lot of head that quickly melts away

S - Caramel, sweet malts, and a bit of alcohol. Smells very sweet.

T - Sweet and malty with notes of caramel and vanilla. This one is pretty boozy too and the 9% ABV shines through.

M - Medium bodied and syrupy with very little carbonation. Goes down nice and warm, but a bit more syrupy than I'd like.

This was a nice surprise from a locals trade. I love the style and this is a very good example of a dopplebock. The booziness suits this beer well. Perfect drink after shoveling a couple feet of snow from Nemo.

I have no love for doppelbocks. So it has to be good or I'm going to get unhappy real quick.

Pours a very dark and clouded brown. Thick head at first, off a vigorous pour, but not much showing after that. Nose is thickly malty sweet. Flavor is the same. Approaches being too sweet, but it works out well. I like it. Nice drinker. Could probably age this for some time. Glad I picked it up.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into goblet.

A: Poured dark amber with a nice reddish tint. Very little head that disappeared almost immediately.

S: Sweet malts and caramel mixed with plum and dates. A bit of the alcohol is apparent in the nose.

T: A nice sweetness with fruity notes including plum, date, raisins. It's a bit boozy but in a nice way.

M: Medium body with a tendency towards syrupy. Very little carbonation.

O: Enjoyable. Fairly nice representation of style. Another solid choice from Straight to Ale.

Bomber, on the discount table. This one poured a tea-color with some ruby highlights, a bit opaque. The head was a nice tan color, and it hung around, but nothing substantial. Sour cherries on the nose, some malty sweetness, toffee, some booze. This one has a sour kick to it - maybe the bottle was getting on the old side - tart cherries, concentrated orange juice, wood, dry grains. The sweetness is very muted and not up-front. There's no booze flavor, which is a nice surprise. The carbonation is subtle and toned down.
