4.61/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. Purchased at the Victory Brewpub store. ENJOY BY: Jan 24 2014.

Appearance: Pours a clear dark amber body with a thick off white toffee colored head. Good carbonation.

Smell: Aroma of sweet caramel and toffee. Slight sugary molasses. Very sweet aroma. Smells delicious.

Taste: Sweet malty dates, raisins. Slight coffee flavor. Very rich and sweet. Tastes delicious!

Mouthfeel: The body isn't too thick, making this drinkable. Enough malty molasses texture to coat the mouth, but no real strong/offensive aftertaste.

Overall: Absolutely delicious and perfect for this never ending winter. What a doppelbock should be!

Serving type: bottle

3.96/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: a little on the dark side, I think; seems clear although it's so dark, I can't really see through it. Large amount of head in the pour that sustains and laces

S: I can distinguish a smokiness above another less distinguishable smell, reminds me of house when I am brewing. Light plum perhaps lying underneath.

T/M: this one is a little sweeter than I expected. It is a doppelbock and should have that sweeter front, but this one seems a little much. Getting past that, I get the roasted malt characteristics that might have led to the smokey notes. The taste is leather/tobacco under the malty beginning. The beer has a big body, and is smooth while being well carbonated.

O: as I read the style description, this one fits on that dark end, tending towards stout. There isn't much bitterness in the flavor, but the beer does balance out better in the end.

Serving type: on-tap

Imagine a cross between shiner and guiness and you get this amazing beer

Color is a deep brown with a slightly earthy sweet smell. The taste is a sweet raisin and toasted malt rich flavor, with traces of citrus behind the two main flavors and a nice heavy but smooth finish

Serving type: growler
