look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - Dark, amber to dark amber. There is a little bit of the roasted color from some highly kilned malts, but not enough to make it totally dark.

Smell - Nutty with slight hop aroma. The bread undertone is nice too.

Taste - They say there is a lot of Munich in the description and it certainly comes through. Very clean, bread, nut, slight hint of almond. This was nicely lagered and the malt comes thorugh cleanly.

Mouthfeel- has a hint of the flowery feel from lagering, but that is overpowered by the beer's heavy body.

Overall - a nice winter warmer. It is obviously a German lagered beer, and has a familiar simplicity that dopplebocks normally have. I'd have to say, though, that it is a little too simple and could use just a little something extra to make it special. Good brew overall though.
