3.48/5 rDev -11%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Look- Very dark, beer glass brown. no head retention, good amount of lacing though. was anticipating something darker. Its a more comforting color.
Smell- Real sweet, a malty sweetness, a caramel aroma and slight chocolate and dark fruit notes.
Taste- The malt sweetness kicks in, almost giving a fruit like character but probably closer to a licorice sweetness, medium to full mouthfeel, not much hop flavor but gets slightly bitter in the finish. finishes thicker than it starts, with an alcohol bite.
Overall experience- Its not a bad beer i would probably have this closer to the winter time to warm up with, but i feel it is lacking something. i would purchase again but would not go out of my way for it. Its hard to compete with an Ayinger Doppelbock.

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.
