4.15/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance - Amber. Clear with evident carbonation. Tall of-white head with persistence.

Smell - Sweet malts. Not particularly strong.

Taste - Heavy dose of medium roasted malt. A honey like sweetness, but quite rich. Hint of alcohol. Rich and very pleasant taste.

Mouthfeel - Creamy. Medium to full. Alcohol warmth.

Overall - This should be the official drink of March in Wisconsin. It looks like summer's coming, but it gives you what you need for March. Something worth looking forward to every year.

3.48/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

poured 12oz bottle into snifter.

A - Dark golden honey in color with an 1.5 finger off-white head. Retention is fair, no lacing.

S - Sweet malts, caramel, honey, sweet biscuit and corn muffin. There are also some light fruity aromas, maybe some orange peel.

T - Sweet malts, caramel, honey, sweet biscuit and corn muffin. Very light bready orange and fruit make an appearance later.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and sticky.

O - I have not had this in about 15 years, so it was interesting to revisit. A bit too sweet for me, but within the style of doppelbock.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

So, do gentlemen prefer this kind of doppelbock? Regardless, this stuff pours a clear golden-brass topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises sweet biscuit, honey, a hint of vanilla, sweet flowers, and a twang of candied orange peel. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a pinch of clove, a hint of sweet corn, and an extra tad of breadiness. There's a definite sense of booze in there, but it doesn't have all that much effect. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly smooth feel. Overall, a solid doppelbock, as per usual when Capital is involved, though I'm not sue the blonde-ness was all that effective in the final execution. I mean, I like this beer, but their other d-bocks just hold up a bit better in my eyes.
