A deep, dark, opaque ruby-mahogany in color (with a cream/caramel head), this beer is strong on the coffee and cocoa notes (most especially the former), both in the aroma and the flavor. There is a malty, brown-bread body to the flavor, with a dried fruit sweetness behind it all. It has all the richness that a dark beer usually has, but sits much lighter than it looks like it will. The feel is smooth, yet lightly effervescent. It pairs just as well with rich food as it does with drinking by itself. I'm not usually a dark beer man, but this I could drink pints of.

I've never had a doppelbock before so I didn't know what to expect. I have to say though it was very good. I would have given the smell higher rating but it wasn't very pronounced but did smell good. The taste is what really matters. It has a perfect sweetness to it with pretty much no bitterness whatsoever. It looks like a porter or stout in the glass but definately does not taste like one. I will be buying this again

Much attention gets paid to the Hefeweizen, but don't look past this doppelbock. I am a big fan of the doppelbock style, and this is a good example of one.

500ml bottle poured into a tulip glass-pours dark reddish brown with 2 fingers of pale beige head and lacing travels all to bottom of glass; rich yeasty brown bread and malt smell and taste with smooth feel on the mouth-not too heavy but still had to crank up the AC to enjoy in West Africa
