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.
