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.

Deep reddish brown in colour with an inch of fine, medium beige foam. Good head retention. Malty aroma with a bit of alcohol, raisins and dried fruit, biscuit and toast, slight sugary character. Really nice flavour, balanced combination of aroma characteristics along with mild to moderate bitterness. Malty throughout with bready and biscuity notes, grain and dried fruit, alcohol in the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation, smooth texture, mild warmth. I liked this quite a bit. Another solid beer from Jack's Abby -- they continue to impress me.

a: Semi dark chestnut brown with orange edges; poured with a medium sized fizzy head.

s: Fairly strong heat, stewed raisins, hints of chocolate, toffee, and nutty malts.

t: Lots of good things going on up front; sweet bread, toffee, raisins, cocoa. Ths sharp, dry, lingering heat is a bit of a drawback.

m: Yes this is a bigger doppel, but it still comes across as a bit heavy.

o: Plenty to like here. This is more densely flavored than a typical doppel. To tbe point that I think it comes on a bit too strong. Still, I'd gladly have another.
