A - Dark brown, copper/redish body. Pours with slight off-white head with very little retention.
S - very strong malt presence. Perhaps some light caramel on the nose and hidden grape and plum. No hop aroma detected.
T - Strong malt sweetness. Moderate smoothness of alcohol on finish. Low bitterness, perhaps some phenolics detected with spice note.
M - Moderate-low creamy body with medium-high carbonation.
Overall - A nice example of a classic doppelbock, but I can easily think of several doppelbocks I'd rather have instead. (Ayer, EKU, etc)

Pours a medium brown with caramel highlights and minimal cream head that dissipates to almost nothing.
Deep caramelization, melanoidins. Toasted, nutty malt.
Lots of kettle caramelization, slightly sweet melanoidin character. Enough toasted malt to counter the sweetness and nuttiness to finish things out. Slightly bitter finish. A touch of roast and dark cherries.
Body is fairly full with minimal carbonation and substantial alcohol warmth.
Nice melanoidin character, not cloyingly sweet, but a bit hot.
Serving type: on-tap
