Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
A dark strong interpretation of a double bock. Full bodied with a raisiny, dark fruit, slightly roasted and chewy malt character. Lagered for two months, a smooth malt character balances the high ABV of this strong beer.

25 IBU

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Very dark mahogany with an off white head a good two fingers thick.

Aroma: Figs, brown bread, caramelized sugars, banana, clove, tremendous bready malts.

Taste: A very malty backbone, dark bread, minor notes of roasted hops. Figs, plantains, black licorice, dark fruits and toffee. The mouthfeel is chewy with some stickiness.

Notes: An amazing Dopplebock and very drinkable. Cheers.

Poured in a pilsner.
I wasn't expecting much despite the reviews. I was surprised. I am a fan of Ayinger Celebrator. This beer turned out to be as good with more depth.

Dark honey color with a 2+ finger head.

The aroma from the bottle and the head was excellent: dark fruit, malt. I wasn't expecting fruit in this lager- it's quite pronounced.

Mouth feel: carbonated and suit the style well.

Taste: deep malt, dark fruit, figs. The second pouring was even deeper fruit.

Another great beer by Jacks Abby. It may be one of my favorites from the brewery.

Class act !!!
