Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: taez555 on 12-16-2011

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.

When a doppelbock is this big, it feels like a stout!

A: Huge head with nice retention. Deep, dark color, looks roasty and intense. Leaves nice lacing in the glass. Will make others jealous.

S: Nose follows the eye; with roasty, espresso notes. Lots of deep, earthy goodness, with some dark chocolate, and hints of molasses and dark fruits. You could be fooled into believing this was a porter or a stout, but it doesn't lose its character as a doppelbock.

T: Coffee, dark, espresso roast, with subtle dark fruits and a bit of twang like malt vinegar in the finish. Lots to contemplate. Very rich. Raisins. Big raisins! And molasses, reminding me of gingerbread cookie dough.

M: chewy, thick, rich, and full bodied. Coats the glass and the pallet. Big beer. Surprisingly smooth and easy drinking.

Overall, ranks up there with the best of breed doppelbocks for me (Celebrator and Optimator)!
