Doppelbock |  9.00% ABV

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

A: The beer is clear but ver dark amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of raisins are present in the nose along with some hints of brown bread.
T: Just like the smell, the taste has flavors of raisins with malty sweetness and notes of brown bread.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is like liquid bread and is very filling and nourishing, but is still rather easy to drink because any traces of alcohol are well hidden from the taste.

Bottle poured into chalice

Deep ruby brown, clear with carbonation. Pours a taupe one finger bubbly foam cap.

Aroma of raisins, winey,

First sip, taste of sweet malt on the middle of the tongue , light espresso roast. Second sip, taste of raisin and feel of the alcohol. Check the label and this is 9% abv.

Smooth, good sudsing, chewy sweet malt, medium body, clean finish.

Good beer, made in America, but Optimator or Celebrator still reigns supreme in this style of beer.
