Excellent dobblebock

A - rich mahogany with beige to brownish head that lasts with lots of lacing

S - deep perfumy malts, some sweet and some a bit roasty with a touch of fumey alcohol and a rasp of rosemary

T - now, this is truly a malt bomb but what I love about it is its managed to not be cloying by having a good deal of complexity to it. Theres the sweetness, but then a wide array of roasty notes, slight toffee, coffee and caramel, wood, a kiss of herbs and hop. All this and it finishes nice and remarkably clean - not too sweet nor too dry with no off flavors.

M - great mouthfeel - full bodied but not cloying. Carbonation is very mellow and complements the malt play.

D - despite its strength - I rate this high because its not cloying and complex enough to make you want to keep drinking it to figure out all the flavors. Remarkable job by a remarkable brewery.

Ya know, last time I reviewed this beer I gave it a 4.2. That is simply unacceptably low for a beer of this caliber.
Have you ever fallen in love with a beer? Sure, at first taste it was merely 'good' but you felt an unexplainable urge to return to the store and buy this beer again and again. What seperates this beer from all the others? You aren't really sure -- there are maltier brews, brews with more complexity, with a greater array of flavours, but none of them match the elegance of this one special beer. This is the kind of beer that makes me want to get down on one knee and ask it to be the one beer for me, the beer that I will come home to, the beer that I will drink with joy for the rest of my life.
Sure, I might enjoy another beer every now-and-again but, baby, I didn't mean it. You're better than all those beers, really baby, I mean it. Gimme another chance, don't go away. I know the weather will get warmer soon and you'll leave me for a time. Don't leave me baby, please, I didn't mean it. Don't leave me, don't leave me. . .
