4.71/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Deep muddy brown appearance with a slight reddish haze in direct light. Very creamy tan head which lasts down the side of the glass as you sip (or in my case, gulp.)

Smell of sweet malt is to the fore with some raisin toast and faint caramel.

Taste is big and bold similar to the smell. Sweet Malt, Caramel & Chocolate take centre stage but not in an overpowering cloying way. Faint citrus overtones and a dry if somewhat bittersweet finish!

Mouthfeel is creaminess all the way. Nice and light compared to what I was expecting from the inital taste. Near perfect.

The 7.4 ABV is hardly noticable with the great balance of the beer. I don't know if I could drink this all night but I reckon I could give it a good crack!

Pours a nice deep dark brown pinkish purplish color with a great foamy head. Smells so malty and sweet. Does not taste sweet however. Very crips and refreshing with great body. Not much bitterness at all and very clean. I did not detect much fruitiness as others have noted. A very easy beer to drink and a great one at that.

4.19/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a tall wide chalice: color is dark brown, tan edges; head is tan, dense and presents 1 inch thick then lingers with at least 1/4 inch of head.

Smell is very pleasant, at first it is some light sweetness, light toffee, chocolate and plum come to mind; subtle grassy and earthy qualities, very enticing.

Taste is very enjoyable, primary flavor is malt forward but there is some nice fresh hop presence noted: malt flavors are toffee, chocolate and some plums or raisin like flavors; hop presence is earthy, grassy, fresh in presence and nicely bitter but allowing the sweetness to linger.

Mouthfeel is a wonderful blend of malt sweetness, fine carbonation and solid bitterness. Flavors and presence focus on the tongue and are in no way cloying or out of balance.

Overall a great beer with near ideal doppelbock qualities: not too sweet, clean flavors that are enticing and clean mouthfeel.

3.96/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The bottle is so us usual and beautiful, I had to try it. Poured from a bottle into a Pilsner, at a temperature between the fridge and room temp. Color is a crystal clear strawberry red with the slightest brown tinge when held up to intense light. Thin, tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, with roasted malt and caramel sweetness, with mild floral hops. Flavor is again yeasty, roasted malt, toffee sweetness, with a slightly piney finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin, and a bit foamy. This is a style that I do not understand (doppelbock), so I am rating it just as an enjoyable brew and experience. On that basis, I will say it is a very good to outstanding lager, well worth sampling. And this one has a bear, not a goat on the label.
