50cl bottle poured into my Spaten Seidel Krug.

A- A chocolatey mahogany body, excellent clarity with a strong coffee coloured 3 finger creamy head that lasts well considering the abv and produces very good lacing.

S- Lots of cocoa, sweet toffee notes, toasted biscuits.

T- Toffeeish sweet malts balancing with a lovely toasted maltiness. A creamy milk chocolateyness comes through with a delicious hit of a high % cocoa solid dark chocolate. Amazing

M- Full bodied, creamy, silky smooth like milk chocolate, just unbelievable.

D- A monster beer. Hides its abv unbelievably well. A beautiful texture. The first mouthful, if you love malt, sends you to heaven with its smooth transition from sweet malts to a delicate toasted malt note balancing with a milk chocolate creaminess and the dark chocolate bitterness coming through in the finish. All this while maintaining a full body and a clean lager finish. Best doppelbock ever. This is the gold standard.

My 300th review, why not make it a style favorite? To all the good lagers that get no respect.

.5 L brown bottle.

A -- Pours a clear, deep chestnut brown with a very dense, tan (nearly brown) head that holds up very well.

S -- Peppery alcohol up front, toasty dark bready, malts follow through with molasses to caramel in the finish. Some vague earthiness and DMS too.

T -- Big hit of rich, sweet, dark bread up front. The molasses character comes through afterward and finishes with a light pepperiness from alcohol. There is some very mild, dark fruit characters in the middle of the flavor, but the dark, toasty bread flavors are most prominent.

M -- Mouthfeel is soft up front with a dry finish and a chewy, medium-full body -- becoming more full with warming.

O -- Okay, Paulaner may have originated Doppelbock, but I think Weihenstephaner has perfected the style. Clean and delicious maltiness that is the hallmark of the style. This is what German beer is all about, whether 7.4% or lower; the precision brewing shines in this beer.

All "5s" mean a beer cannot improve anymore? I don't see how this one can improve to style. Go, get some now and understand Doppelbock.
