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.
