Sitting here watching the Fall Classic and drinking beers, this being one of them. I want to see the Royals win so bad I can't stand it, I don't think we can beat Bumgardner tomorrow. I'd like to see it go to Kansas City at 3-2 Royals. Anyway, side poured aggressively from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a nice, deep amber color with a one finger head that dissipates relatively quickly and leaves little lacing. Of course, I love the packaging on any German beer.

Smell - Sweet malts, big breads, smells like a meal in a bottle, which is just what a doppelbock is supposed to smell like. Not a super complex nose, but fits the style well and is very enjoyable.

Taste - The sweet malts are the first and primary taste, although the breads wash the palate during the drink as well. Some nutty characteristics.

Mouthfeel - Thin bodied, finishes fresh and clean with a malty overtone. Very good.

Overall - This is an excellent beer from an outstanding brewery, one of the best in the world. I do not think this doppelbock is as good as Ayinger Celebrator, even though it is rated higher, but it is an excellent beer nonetheless. Condor recommended and approved.

A most excellent dopplebock. Pours a thick brown with red highlight and a HUGE rocky white
head that lingers around and leaves astounding lacing as it dissipates to a thin layer. Nose of
toffee, chocolate, and breaded goodness. Flavors of sweet caramel malts, almost brown sugar
like, with hints of toffee and fresh bread on the back. TONS of flavor. A delicious malted bomb
for any season. For being more commercial this one packs a fantastic punch with smooth
mouth feel and moderate carbonation. An A plus!

Cheers
