Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Deep mahogany color with a creamy head that falls away after about a minute. Smell is of deep, caramel malt character, hints of milk chocolate and a bit of toffee, though not as powerful as might be found in other examples of the style. Taste is much the same: very clean, crisp, sweet malt character, nice toasty breadiness, though subdued in comparison to a classic German doppelbock. Light-bodied and easy to drink, with a dry finish. This is a nice beer, clean and refreshing, though those looking for a big, full-bodied doppelbock might look elsewhere. This could almost be considered a doppelbock-light, or the happy medium between an Oktoberfest and a doppelbock. Still a pleasure to drink, and definitely worth picking up if you get the chance.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a: a real nice chestnut brown color with some mild ruby red notes. very clear as well

s: smells sweet, rich, and silky. this is loaded with juicy caramel malts. loads of bready yeast, a hint of molasses and brown sugar. smells nice

t: those caramel malts hit you right away, and are immediately cut by a mild earthy bitterness, some metallic notes. it gently fades back to the caramel and brown sugar flavors. slightly nutty, and a hint of cherry. its not intensely complex, but it has a real nice progression of flavors and each of those flavors is pretty nice

m: medium mouthfeel - a bit silky. not really heavy at all. on the lower side of carbonation - just the right amount

o: its a quite pleasant beer. i could lose some of the bitterness, but it does do well to cut the sweetness and leaves a neutral flavor behind. like mentioned before, its nothing too crazy, but its enjoyable to drink
