Bottle around a year old.
Pour produces a thick tan head. The color bright dark ruby. The liquid is viscous and thick when swirling around the glass. The aroma is strong and rich with fruity tones. I could swear by the taste that this is made with massive quantities of munich malt but according to the website it is all two row and caramel. The flavor profile works for a double bock and is delicious.
The flavor is seriously malty with a hint of dark fruit and chocolate. The thick liquid coats your mouth with all the deep flavors. This is a slow drinking beer. I don't know that I could drink a bunch at one time but it is a double bock with twice the alcohol of "normal" beers so I'm not sure that the purpose with this one.

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
