3.33/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Paid $1.90 for a single at the Party Source...

The beer pours a clear chocolate brown base, with a small white-caramel colored head, minimal head retention and no signs of lacing. The smell is classic doppel, one of sweet malt but not too heavy.

The taste is a bit overpowering with alcohol at first, but once it settles it is still pretty 2-dimensional with the sweet taste a bit stronger than the mild malt flavor. The mouthfeel is too heavy, should be smoother, but the alcohol plays too much into this beer. Drinkable to have maybe one more, but I like the transition to a pils after starting with this one.

Final Thought: Meh. A decent doppel that has a lot of room for improvement in needed balance of sweetness and malt, as well as to conceal the alcohol punch you get; especially early on.

Serving type: bottle
