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.

Poured chilled in hotel glass in Greenville, SC
A: very buoyant head with mixed size of bubbles; solid black; good carbonation
S: strong, persistent bock/malt aroma
T: dry, straightforward; medium bitterness; strong charred malt taste, with dashes of aniseed; I feel the alcohol (7%) is meshed nicely in this flavor profile
Good solid beer.
