Came part of a trade from pokesbeerdude. Thanks!

A- Transparent amber with a orange tint. Small bright white head.

S- Large malt presence, caramel, strong booze.

T- Right along with the smell. A lot of malt. Followed by a caramel sweetness and a strong boozy finish.

M/D- Thick bodied, medium/high carbonation. Low drinkability. This is a very poorly made doppelbock.

Oddly watery mouthfeel and light body for the style. Burnt raisin toast flavors. Not much of the wheat flavors. More dark caramel and a slight bitterness in the finish. Seems to have that spoiled fruit flavor that makes me think of Old Ales rather than the Doppelbock.

Handsome dark amber in the glass. Fragrant with some dark fruit in the nose. The odd perfumey flavor with an earthy aftertaste is not one I care for at all.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Initially, this had a great head and was a very good looking beer. This is all changed within a minute or so as the beer completely lost its head and looked like iced tea. On the nose, I got plenty smoked meat, smoked ham even.

Taste was of pecans and roasted nuts. Tasted much sweeter than a normal double bock. Almost seemed like it was a straight up pecan beer. Mouthfeel was decent. Lost some carbonation as I kept drinking. Overall, not impressed. Was a slightly below average double bock that was too sweet and didn't keep carbonation long enough. The alcohol was not detectable, which was a good thing, in my opinion.

Poured into a pint glass. Very light brown, clear color. Few carbonation bubbles lead to a small, half finger head that is very light brown itself and thin. Lace appears to not want anything to do with this beer.

Smell is lightly roast malts and yeast. Sweet smelling, light coffee and chocolate smells and maybe just a hint of alcohol.

Taste is not like the smell so much. It drinks more like a Scotch Ale. Very sweet and medium roast malts. Honey and wheat. No alcohol can be detected from the taste.

Mouth is silky or creamy with round carbonation. Body is medium with an average wet finish.

Overall this wasn't bad but it didn't fit it's style IMO. I really think it tasted more like a Scotch/Scottish/Wee Heavy than a Doppelbock but not a bad choice if you get the chance. Thanks to Rim Liquor for this one.

Appears a clear brown color in my pilsner glass. A large head forms and slowly settles to a thick cap. Nice amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Rather timid aroma for an 8% ABV beer. Some bready malt and mild spice.

I can taste some caramel, bitter chocolate, and dark bread. Small alcohol presence and a little warmth in the finish.

Thin for the style and definately for a beer with this ABV. Carbonation is nice.

Unremarkable beer. Nothing wrong with that but I feel no need to visit this beer again.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A – Clear reddish brown with a white, one-finger, sea foam looking head. Lacing is clumpy.

S – Strong aroma of sweet caramel malt. Undertones of molasses and toffee. Again, this smells really sweet.

T – Taste matches the nose. Plenty of sweetness from the caramel malt, but manages to not be cloying. Slightest hint of earthy hops in the finish. Not very complex, and kind of boring on the tongue after a while. Slightest hint of booze in the mid palate.

M – Pretty much perfect for the flavor profile; medium bodied, with lively carbonation. Thankfully no syrupy feel with all that sweetness, and it drinks like a beer.

O – Hard to really say much more about this one. A solid enough double bock, but nothing that would make me really remember this or rush out to buy it again.
