3.15/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into an Imperial pint glass.
Appearance: Clear amber yellow with a huge, fluffy white head (even though I was pouring carefully). In fact, the head was so aggressive that I had to stop pouring when the glass was only half full because the top half was all head. Really light in color for a Doppelbock.
Smell: Definite green apple aroma, smells more like a strong cider than a beer
Taste: Sweet maltiness up front, followed quickly by a citrusy note, and finishing with the flavor of sourdough bread with an alcohol pinch. This wasn't really what I was expecting from a Doppelbock.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, very full bodied and velvety.
Drinkability: I just finished the 22 oz bottle, and at 8%, I don't think I'll open another one. It's decent, but it doesn't seem like a Doppelbock.
Serving type: bottle
