look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance- Pours up about 2 fingers of head which doesn't have much retention. The head is off-white with hints of beige while the body is a maroon/dark amber that glows a medium to dark amber with maroon around the edges. No lacing left as of yet.

Nose- From the glass, I get faint hints of caramel. The bottle gives up conspicuous notes of caramel that has cinnamon around the edges. After some vigorous swirling, the beer only shows some burnt caramel and burnt raisin.

Taste- Sweet malt strikes first- caramel, brown bread, brown sugar, molasses, and hints of raisins. There seems to be a spiciness on the finish that is close to the cinnamon of the nose. Some heat as well. The cinnamon of the flavor profile approaches the heat of red hots candy. There is a lot of presence but balance seems to be lacking. At points, the malt bill seems to point toward burnt bread and burnt raisins. Starts to mellow but the burnt nature of the malt bill seems to take over the finish. I can understand how some might enjoy this beer but it's not for me. A just above average beer at the moment.

Mouthfeel- Almost medium bodied with a good amount of syrup to the texture. They could perhaps dial back the carbonation a little bit.

Drinkability- The heat does fade after a few minutes but the flavor profile is an obstacle for me. Price is not bad.

Overall- Matches the heavy malt bill of most doppelbocks but lacks the integration of some of the better ones and is definitely not in the same class as Ayinger. If you like doppelbocks, then give it a try. If not, you can pass.

Appearance: caramel brown in color, 1/3 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: rich and deep caramel

Taste: deep caramel, brown sugar, slight chocolate

Mouthfeel: rich and heavy bodied, low carbonation, sweet

Overall:A solid doppelbock that is dangerously drinkable. This one is good and sweet but not overly complex. I will pick this up again at some point.

a deep amber almost brown, clean pour with 2 fingers of head with nice retention. smells malty sweet, caramel, molasses, mild cocoa, sweet nutty notes of pecans/walnuts, raisins. flavor-wise, it is very similar to the aromas.. very nutty, sweet and malty with a nice sugary kick towards the back end. for the abv, it drinks fairly easy with a creamy mouthfeel, medium body, and moderate amount of carbonation.

this is a pretty nice offering, and the first beer i've had from this brewery. i wouldn't mind seeing what they're capable of with other styles.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown/mahogany color with a one finger tan colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is bready and of a darker fruit aroma. The darker fruits are mainly of raisin and prune but have some cherry in there as well. With these aromas there is also a light boozy smell of a more rum like aroma.

Taste – The taste begins bready and sweet with a whole lot of dark fruit flavors upfront. Raisin and prune are the most prevalent of the sweet with some lighter caramel and toffee flavor coming to the tongue more toward the middle. Along with the sweet, so too comes some flavors of a light spice and some yeast as well. Toward the end a boozy flavor develops on the tongue leaving a sweet and warming feel to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. Both are good for the slightly sweeter and fruity flavors of the brew as well as the lighter boozy flavors.

Overall - .A sweeter and rather pleasantly fruity tasting dopplebock. It was rather enjoyable overall and one to try if you get the chance.
