Pours a deep crimson and nearly looks like blood red,the cap is hesitant to make much of a appearance,but is easily stirred to create a one finger sandy brown covering that lasts only a couple seconds and leaves no lacing. The nose smells of brown sugar and nutty malts,subtle chocolate and dark fruits as well. This tastes a little subdued to be a top notch Doppelbock. Tastes of raisins and light milk chocolate,like Raisinette candy. A little caramelized brown sugar and light maple. Sweet and dessert like,good overall. A medium full body and slightly sticky mouth coating attributes help this achieve a solid landing,sweet and subtly smokey malty finish. A great brewery and a very enjoyable Doppelbock.

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.
