Clear brown colored beer with a medium sized light brown colored head.
Smells mildly sweet with lots of caramel and a herbal and soapy hop aroma. Mild nut and coffee aromas.
Tastes much like it smells. Mildly sweet with caramel and nuts. Slight soapy taste. Pecan nut flavor and slight pecan pie flavor. Slight vanilla taste.
Mouthfeel is thick.
Overall an OK Doppelbock. This is a bit sweeter than I like.

2.74/5 rDev -24.5%

Appearance: a solid brown color that hints towards black depending on the light. a finger of a white head that leaves behind a bit of a lacing. almost opaque but lets just a little bit of light through.
Smell: sweet. maybe some brown sugar, breadiness, chocolate and earthiness.
Taste: opens up with chocolate tending towards roasty malts. overtaking by a huge earthiness, mixing with bread. very weird balance too it, which i have a difficulty explaining.
Mouthfeel: sweet and fairly light for the style, completely missing the lager cleanness.
Overall: i found this beer way too muddled between flavors. the chocolate and earthiness just seem out of place and don't balance very well.
Serving type: on-tap

Bomber, served in a Tyranena snifter
A - pours a dark copper, clear, fades to zero head
S - biscuit and caramel, a bit of subdued hops follow
T - sweet, but not overly so, caramel up front, hops are more present here than in the nose
M - rather thin, surprising for 9.0% abv, but smooth
O - good value, certainly a solid dopplebock, nothing earth-shattering. Won't necessarily seek it out, but would happily have it again
