Appearance: dark brown, but a beautiful ruby red when held to the light! Nice retention and lacing.

Nose: Prunes, malt, carmel. Toasted grain at the end.

Taste: Soft and pleasant carbonation. Carmel and prunes with a touch of chocolate.

Notes: A great quality beer, but very particular in taste and mouthfeel.

10/30/13 From bottle. Almost need a spoon with this. Malt up the nose and caramel on the tongue with a middling body & a lingering bitter-sweetness that tells of a well thought out concoction. The 7.4 ABV will force me to keep this new friend in perspective. (Like 'perspective' is what I'm here for.) A new Favorite.

4.25/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Bistre/deep maroon body with an ochre/coffee head.

Aroma: Profound notes of toasted grains and what I can best describe as 'dark, dank fruit' - present, but not overpowering - with slightly malty undertones.

Taste: Much like the aroma, except it is very 'malt-forward' with the grains and fruit lingering on your palate after going down.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat mild carbonation with a full-body.

Overall: While I've not had many doppelbocks, I am certain that this is one of the best out there; get it and enjoy!
