A - Burgundy color with a one-finger, tan head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled malty and slightly fruity.

T - Good malty flavor with a sweet caramel and toffee flavor. Some sweet fruits, too.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. Medium bodied lager.

O - This is a good dopplebock. My first Wasatch brew was a good choice.

12 oz bottle pours a clear crimson-copper color with a fine-bubbled tan head. Retention is pretty short-lived but the lacing is nice.

Nose is sweet caramel and light toast, maybe some toffee in here too. Smells pretty good, full flavored and lets the malts do their thing.

Taste has a candy-esque sweetness supplemented by slightly burnt caramel and toast. Alcohol is well hidden up front but flashes a slight sting on the finish. Mouthfeel is modest for a doppel and the carbonation is fine-bubbled. I don’t really like the near-burnt bready alcohol finish, it is a little acrid. It’s a passable doppel, but it might be awhile until I grab a sixer of this at the store.

Tasted 24 October 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a dark brown amber, some reddish hues. Not much head, and what there is fades fast. No lacing that I can see.

Smell is sugary, sugary, sugary. Brown sugar, molasses, any other kind you like. Not overpowering, but mostly one-dimensional. Some dark fruit, plums and figs. It's sweet, and could definitely do with some more complexity, but I like it.

Taste is also fairly sweet, but with less depth, less fruit. Drifts into a moderately bitter finish. Tastes fine, but it's shallow.

Medium-bodied, slick on the tongue. Medium-low carbonation. Works fine.

A solid, definitely above-average doppelbock. I like it; its main faults are that it doesn't measure up to the best in depth and complexity. But it's tasty.
