Poured into a Belgian goblet at the Cock and Bull in Covington, Kentucky. Pours an amber color with no head, don't know if it's because of the beer or the glass was not beer ready. However, there was plenty of carbonation in the beer. A constant flow of bubbles was rising from the bottom of the glass. The nose was full of dark juicy fruit note that was followed by a aromas of spicy hops, then backed by spicy alcohol. The taste was delicious, all of the fruits in the nose and peppery alcohol. The mouth feel was thick and wonderful, great beer to warm yourself against Cincinnati's rainy, cold winters. This beer goes beyond the style of Doppelbock, maybe an eisbock, but the flavor reminds me of an English Barley Wine. Would pair wonderfully with Creme Brulee.
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

A - Poured a deep ruby with a cream colored head that disappears to a whisper quickly, but left lots of lacing. Looks like a wine or a brandy, and is a beautiful color.
S - Huge showing from dark fruit. The smell is nearly like a wine, and I can literally smell the alcohol. Figs, grapes, plum and hints of dark chocolate and prune.
T - Intense flavor, huge deep dark malt hit, massive showing of dark fruit and some dark chocolate, and another huge wallop from the high ABV, which makes itself known, but not obnoxiously. My bottle had been aging for a few months, and I'd imagine the flavor was more intense initially, whereas now it has matured and brought out some beautiful spicy sweet tones. Delicious.
M - Extremely sticky, almost has a cough syrup texture to it, very thick. Heavy.
O - An expertly crafted dopplebock, and one I'd love to try fresh to compare the flavors to the aged bottle I had. Absolutely delightful!
