12 oz. bottle dated January 24, 2015. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Consumed and reviewed on February 14, 2015.

L: Color is deep amber with an off-white head that recedes quickly. Striking clarity.

S: Smell is raisin, prune, faint chocolate, caramel malt, woody, nutty.

T: Taste follows the nose with melanoidin malt goodness, faint dark fruits, toffee, chocolate, minimal hop bitterness, dry finish, very clean lager taste.

F: Medium body, low carbonation, very smooth and drinkable.

Overall: A very clean doppelbock with excellent attenuation which makes for a very nice drinking experience. In my opinion, it doesn’t stack up to its world-class German counterparts - Andechs and Ayinger - but it offers a pleasant diversion here in Michigan. Well done, Bell’s.

Pretty smooth and not over heavy for an 8% ABV. Would recommend it !

Very happy to find this being sold as single bottles.
A - Pours reddish brown with a thick head.
S - Malty with a bit of wine or fruit.
T - Flavor is sweet, malty and caramel.
M - Chewy mouth feel.
O - I'm a fan of doppelbocks and this is a good one. This is a great, full bodied, delicious winter warmer kind of beer. Now I have to go find a six pack.
