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.

Drank from a 1 pt. 6 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Berman's Wine & Spirits, Lexington, MA
Served in a pilsner glass

Crystal clear and dark mahogany in appearance. The liquid was topped by a tight, one-finger, light tan head. Drippy rings of lacing trickled down glass. The head faded to a clingy halo of froth.

The nose was pretty typical for a doppelbock. Nutty and slightly fruity with a stiff, toasted malt base. Crisp and smooth. A mild, sulfury, lager-like quality was noticeable. Fairly mild overall. As the beer warmed, the nose turned sweeter. The malts and the fruity notes also came out a bit more.

The flavor profile was similar to the aroma. Biscuity, toasty malts were apparent. Nutty and moderately fruity. Some booziness came through on the back end but for a 9% ABV beer it was rather well contained. The finish was surprisingly hoppy. Crisp and dry. The hops were earthy and herbal and they lent a good dose of bitterness to the beer but not a lot of flavor. Strong, resiny hops lingered on my palate long after the beer was finished.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Slick, creamy and smooth with a medium amount of carbonation. The beer felt light and frothy on my palate, but it still had a good amount of heft to it.

Jack's Abby produces some terrific beers, but this one was simply mediocre. I wish they could have kicked it up another notch, like they do with their other offerings.
