A: On-Tap poured in to Samichlaus Tulip. Medium dark color with a slight off white head that dissapates quickly which was not a surprise considering Alcohol Content.
S: Aroma was wonderful, Serious Malt and definite alcohol. minimal Hop aroma
T: Very Smooth, not quite what I expected from a beer, in a class by itself.
M: Very full body, lightly carbonated. Feels very smooth, almost scotch like.
O: This is a hell of a beer. May be categorized as a Doppelbock but it is so much more. May not suit everyone's taste but I will be buying as much of this as I can to see how it grows with age
6 oz serving, at 42F, enjoyed so much had to try it twice..
Serving type: on-tap

Fresh bottle, only a couple of months old
A- Pours clear and copper color with a very small fizzy head that disappears quickly, leaving nothing behind
S- big sweet malty aromas with notes of fresh bread, fruit cake, caramel, toffee, alcohol and dark cherries
T- very sweet caramel malt up front with a big hit of sweet brown sugar. sweet bread with some fruity notes mixed in, continuing into a sweet finish
M- thick and viscous body with low carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, big alcohol warmth at the end
O- super sweet and definitely a sipper, but the sweetness does not overpower. Great sweet bread flavors that one would expect from a doppelbock. I'd love to get another bottle to see what some age does for it, but it drinks just fine fresh
Serving type: bottle
