bottled July 30, 2010 (bottle code 0300)

A: Clear, dark reddish brown. Head faded more quickly than I expected. Perhaps it's my glass.

S: Dates, molasses, and a surprisingly bright, almost citric, element in the background. It pretty much smells like a can of dark malt extract.

T: Initially, a wave of dried fruit, then lightly toasted bread. A hint of dry roast and faint, bitter and herbal hops on the finish. The alcohol is well hidden. The flavor is complex and cohesive, and fortunately the dried fruit isn't overwhelming.

M: Pleasantly creamy without being syrupy. Outstanding.

O: I enjoy this beer much more than other doppelbocks. However, because of its sweetness, it's something I'll drink only every now and again, and I'll stop after one.
