Bottled in 2000:
12oz. bottle poured into a tulip-style glass. It pours a deep deep ruby red with one finger of head that quickly dies to a small collar. There is no lacing left over. The smell is potent! Rich and malty, with lots of plums and grapes topped on caramel malts. A fairly strong dose of alcohol sure wakes your ass up too. Its almost got the smell of a strong scotch ale or wee heavy. The taste is also way over on the malty side. Those dark fruits really shining through again, just not as much as in the smell. A bit too much alcohol on the finish. By how it's pasked, you'd think this was plum schnapps. The mouthfeel is very thick and strong, heavy on the tongue. The drinkability suffers some due to the strong strong alcohol content and taste. It'll sure put your ass to sleep!

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
