A - So far so good a deep shade of ruby red brown with a nice 1/4 inch of mocha head.
S - Not much caramel or biscuit malt. In a way stout like with chocolate and brown malts.
T - Really all over the place chocolate, roast, coffee, brown malts, molasses, and a slight sweet caramel finish.
M - Fairly smooth its big ABV is masked well. Easily the best part of the beer.

Overall it kind of tasted like the porter I had from them but it should have been a bock. Lower score since it's no on par with the style.

I know this beer strays from typical Dopplebock and leans on the porter side. But as a beer goes without trying to compare what it should be the flavor is tasty and probably my faviorate beer from Thomas Creek. Definitly one I will go back to and reccomend for more open minded less cynical beer drinkers :-}

Appearance - Dark ruby red with a off white head.

Smell - Chocolate and malt.

Taste - More with the chocolate and malt.A little coffee as it warms.

Mouthfeel - A nice carbonation. A little thick.

Overall - Its a good beer but not all that impress. A once in a while type of beer

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/3/2012. Pours fairly clear dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass; with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, raisin, prune, toast, toffee, chocolate, molasses, floral, dark bread, light roast, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt notes with yeast fruitiness; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, dark bread, raisin, prune, toffee, molasses, chocolate, roast, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, molasses, dark bread, raisin, prune, roast, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark and roasted malt flavors with a light-moderate fruitiness; with nice robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good doppelbock! Nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a chilled glass, nice dark brown almost black color with a 3 fingered creamy tan head that stayed for a while, laced well on the glass. Aroma held roasted malts and chocolate hints, taste went the same way with some coffee in the back ground as well. With a medium mouthfeel it goes well with dinner as it drinks like a food course, rich and full flavored for sure. Overall a nice brew and I would try others from this brand, if you like Stouts and Porters you'll enjoy this for what it is.

12 ounce bottle -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint

This beer pours up an absolutely beautiful obsidian black with a lucious 2 finger foamy caramel colored head, great retention, and awesome lacing. And right there the awesomeness ends. The nose, especially as it warms is malt and alcohol. At 6.25%, the odor of alcohol just shouldn't be present. Taste is more like a porter with some roasted nut notes and malt. The finish is a sort of burnt coffee flavor. Mouthfeel is sort of thin, but there is a decent amount of carbonation. I wouldn't refuse one of these, but neither would I search one out.
