This beer is so thick and the alcohol is right in your throat at all times. It is only 7 % and is so chewy, sweet, molasses, etc that being a Doppelbock lover I can only drink 1 of these beers.
I won't go out on a limb but I think the South makes a totally different Doppelbock from the North.

Deep, dark brown in color. Caramel colored head, very thick and substantial. Sweet, malty smell. Excellent flavored beer! Subtle chocolate and coffee flavors, not overpowering. Feels nice in the maw - doesn't leave it dry.

Nicely put together brew. Will try several more times probably.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a deep red color with a tan head. The aroma is fairly sweet and has a lot of toffee and dark fruit notes. The flavor is similar, with some toffee and lightly roasted malt standing out the most. There is also a little bit of coffee. The beer is very dry overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Very dark, cola-colored brown (think Dr. Pepper), with an inch of slowly settling, cream-colored head. Lacing is sticky and abundant. Big time bready maltiness and significant chocolate in the nose. Noticeable sweetness. Brown sugar, toffee, hints of figs and other fruits, bubblegum.

Very tasty! Lots of bready malt, dark chocolate, light roast, faint booziness, and just a touch of syrupy sweetness. Medium-full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation but also very smooth and creamy in the mouth. Lingering stickiness and aftertaste leaves plenty of malty, sweet, complex breadiness and a late emerging floral hop bitterness.

Perhaps a little hoppier and less full bodied than you'd want, but I enjoyed this one nonetheless. Not up there with the top examples of the style but deserving, in my opinion, of a higher rating than the one the BA community has bestowed upon it.
