look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

LOOK: Clear amber colored lager with a light head and little to no lace. Good clarity and color for the style.

SMELL: Robust malty aroma with hints of nuts, brown sugar and toast. There is also a bit of dark fruit and raisin to it.

TASTE: More vinous than the nose, the taste is dialing in fig, date and raisin notes complimented by a sugary, toasty malt base. Moderate bitterness holds true with a grassy, citrus laden hop character.

FEEL: Medium bodied brew with a perfect medium-high carbonation. Finishes on the cleaner side but some malty residue hangs on for a nice ride on the palate.

OVERALL: A classic American take on the Doppelbock style. Fresh tasting and quite good to toast over good food and good friends.

Serving type: bottle

A deep tawny color, this dopplebock dark but relatively clear. The smell is all malt, rich and with depth. There is some distant dark fruit as well. the taste is malty, and a little roasted quality. Some bitterness, and very full in body. The beer is flavorful and very enjoyable. It's a solid dopplebock.
