3.74/5 rDev -1.6%
Dark copper in color. Beige tan head.
A lot of smoked malts. Bacon flavors. Chocolate and roast. Some molasses flavors. Very rich. Dark fruits muddled in.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. A nice texture.
Very non traditional dopple, but I enjoyed it. Pretty heavy.

On tap at Petrol Station. Poured a half pint glass. Pours a dark brown but pretty transparent color. Toward the bottom of the glass, light seeps through leaving a cola-ish appearance. Smell- a touch of smoke, tea leaves, mocha chocolate. Taste- some real complexity here. I get some nice liquorice, chocolate, campfire smoke, cola, dark tea leaves, and some nice hop bitterness on the end. A nice beer from up and comer Karbach, very solid work

32 oz half growler poured into oversized Duvel tulip glass.
A - Pours a dark brown / mahogany with hints of dark ruby. There is a substantial creamy light brown head, about 2-3 fingers.
S - Smells like caramel, smoke, and bready malt.
T - Just what I've come to love about doppelbocks. This is full of sweet caramel, thick smoke, biscuit, molasses, and sweet bread. The sweetness is tempered by the smokiness and the combo is just right.
M - Moderate-to-thick body with moderate carbonation. The feel is a bit on the sticky side. Good aftertaste of smokiness and caramel.
O - One of the better doppelbocks I've had. Great amount of smokiness gives it a little extra dimension with the sweet caramel and bready malts. One I will be getting again, thanks Karbach!
