3.35/5 rDev -14.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Serving Type: 1 pt .9 fl oz
Appearance: Pours a very dark amber colour w/ no head to speak of. Very little lacing around the edge
Smell: I get dark fruit, molasses and crystallized sugar. No real smell of alcohol which is surprising because it's 9%
Taste/mouthfeel: Big malty flavour w/ lots of sweetness. Molasses comes through as does the dark fruit w/ a touch of alcohol at the end. You don't really feel the warming alcohol till after you have swallowed the beer. It stays w/ in your throat which is rather nice. No hops to speak of and nothing to balance out the sweetness beyond the warming alcohol taste. Goes down smooth though but does leave a light, almost syrup taste in your mouth.
Drinkability: Well it's touch to sweet for me and the 9% hits you if you drink it to quickly. Still a bit enjoyable as long as it's not in excess.
Serving type: bottle

500 ml bottle was poured into a mug.
Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown amber color with no vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Aww man, liquid bread baby. Caramel, toffee, lager yeast, grassy hops, raisins, figs, toasted, and bready malts.
Taste: Nice and malty like a doppelbock should be. Extremely tasty and delicious. A little warm booze too.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little chewy, some booze alcohol, low to medium carbonation, some sweetness, and like eating a meal. Very delicious.
Overall: Got to love German doppelbocks. Especially monks brewing this beer sine 1330. Cheers to the monks who brew this beer and cheers to all the other people who have had the chance to enjoy this treat of a beer.

3.73/5 rDev -4.6%

Poured two inches of cream colored head and a dark ruby body. Decent head retention: head gradually fades to a thin ribbon and leaves sparse sudsy lacing. Smell is of roasty malt and heavy on the dark fruit - some figs, some raisins. Alcohol present. Taste follows the nose. Little bit of booze comes through. Medium-bodied with light carbonation and slightly bitter-sweet. Would maybe have this beer one more time, but no more than that. Not to crazy about tasting those dark fruits in my hocks.
Serving type: on-tap
