Served in a standard shaker pint, this one has a warm, transparent chestnut brown color topped by a modest eggshell-white head. The aroma is subtle but alluring, with a fresh, sweet combination of cherries and dark caramel. The flavor is more rich and heartily grainy, with an almost barley-wine-like profile that features a big earthy and spicy hop character that pushes the malty fruitiness towards the background. The mouthfeel is slightly drying, the sharp but fine carbonation is a bit aggressive, and there is a noticeable alcohol character, which all combine to detract from the interesting flavor profile. In the end, though, the somewhat well-balanced, complex flavors make this beer quite satisfying.

Serving type: on-tap

on tap at BCBB into a tumbler

Appearance is a clear dark amber with a small off-white head. Very red and fairly light colored for the style. As seems to be the case for the style, the head goes away pretty quickly leaving a small ring. A hint of lacing at the top of the glass. The nose is that of light continental hops (spiciness), dark malts, and a subdued sweetness. Taste is fairly malty (dark malts) and hoppier than a German doppelbock. There is a very slight hint of something flat/stale in the taste that is preventing this beer from greatness. Has a nice light bitter finish. Mouth feel is med-heavy weight and features some of that doppelback metallic feel.

Overall this beer is less malty than Optimator, less metallic/soy saucy than Salvator, all the while being hoppier than both. Sorta what I imagine an American doppelbock to taste like. If it wasn't for the slight off taste, this would be my favorite doppel by far. A solid beer in its own right and quite drinkable for the abv.

note: "dopplebock" is the brewery's spelling
