12oz brown bottle. Deep and brilliant ruby hued pour with a thin lace. Soft fruity/leaf aroma and complex dark malts in the nose. Carbonation is a bit lively, creaming up the palate a bit. Thick mouthfeel, with loads of malty character with complex flavors of raisin, grape, ebbing blends of caramel and chocolate, and a slight steely/grain note. Sharpish citric-like bitterness strikes from under the malt, then retreats leaving a slightly herbal character on the palate. Wonderfully rich burnt caramel, toffee, and grape flavors become very pronounced as the beer warms. Touch of spicy alcohol. Sweet bready lingers.
Awesome American stab at the style!

Obvious decoction mash here, some many complex levels of maltiness it is crazy! Nice layer of hop bitterness to keep any kind of cloying sweetness away. The mouth feel was so creamy from the dense malt body. Tasted of freshly baked brown bread with a hint of spicy alcohol.
On of the best domestically brewed Double Bocks I have had to date.

A-Pours dark brown with a thin, tan head.
S-Fruity yeasty aroma with a brown breadiness and some caramel. Light grassy hoppiness.
T-Dark bread and fruitcake with caramel. Toffee and some apples. Light bitterness from the hops but no specific flavor.
M-Medium bodied. Softer bubbles. Alcohol hidden well. A bit creamy.
O-I've wanted to try this beer for some time. It turned out to be a tasty beer. This is one I would like to reexamine at some point.

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
