pint bottle poured into a pilsner. pours a chocolate brown color with garnet highlights. a few fingers of light tan head top it off, with no lacings.
aroma is quite sweet, with a distinct maple character, masking over other notes of caramel, chocolate, alcohol, and a distant fruity feel from the yeast. the maple seems to contribute a distant ascerbic feel to the brew, though still remaining sweet.
taste is sweet up front, with caramel malts, a slightly nutty feel, and an alcohol note as well. at only 7.4 percent APV, this one has a notable amount of alcohol on the palate. finishes on a nutty note with lingering caramel and the same nutty character.
mouthfeel is medium-bodied, with a bite from the alcohol and a creamy mouthfeel. finish is smooth with a slick coating of the mouth. this one has a commanding presence in the mouth.
drinkability is good. although this is a strong brew both in profile and alcoholic presence, the flavors and aromas combine into an enjoyable doppelbock. cheers!

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.
