Pours a nice deep dark brown pinkish purplish color with a great foamy head. Smells so malty and sweet. Does not taste sweet however. Very crips and refreshing with great body. Not much bitterness at all and very clean. I did not detect much fruitiness as others have noted. A very easy beer to drink and a great one at that.

Poured into a tall wide chalice: color is dark brown, tan edges; head is tan, dense and presents 1 inch thick then lingers with at least 1/4 inch of head.

Smell is very pleasant, at first it is some light sweetness, light toffee, chocolate and plum come to mind; subtle grassy and earthy qualities, very enticing.

Taste is very enjoyable, primary flavor is malt forward but there is some nice fresh hop presence noted: malt flavors are toffee, chocolate and some plums or raisin like flavors; hop presence is earthy, grassy, fresh in presence and nicely bitter but allowing the sweetness to linger.

Mouthfeel is a wonderful blend of malt sweetness, fine carbonation and solid bitterness. Flavors and presence focus on the tongue and are in no way cloying or out of balance.

Overall a great beer with near ideal doppelbock qualities: not too sweet, clean flavors that are enticing and clean mouthfeel.
