look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Picked this up at Riley's in Madison.

Poured a darker amber color with a good amount of thick tannish head on it. Nice malt smell to it. Taste is caramel and sweet. Almost tastes a little smokey or roasted. Medium bodied beer. Pretty smooth and drinkable despite being 8% abv. This is a pretty good beer. For the money though, it's probably just a one time try for me.

3.63/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Vintage: 2010

Servint Type: 12oz bottle poured into a Tulip glass.

A: Pours a reddish, copper color. Carbonation is visible. Head insignificant. Lacing is sticky though.

S: Uhh...Sweet Tea??!!...Lipton Tea to pinpoint this aroma! Slight bitter hops play a supporting role.

T: Tea again, but not sweet tea in taste as in the nose. More of an unsweeten tea with beer characteristics. Weird. Slight honey can be detected at the very end which confuses me even more as the dominate flavor is not sweet overall.

M: Lighter medium body brew. Carbonation is minimum. Smooth finish.

D: A very distinct taste indeed. Not a beer that I would have a lot of in any sitting but it's a good drink.

appearance bronze nice head holds okay great lacing
smell caramel bread earthy hop smell
taste malty the alcohol is hidden somewhat hoppy but milder than I expected
mouthfeel okay lighter and lagerish does okay
drinkability I think one beer is enough for me at this moment while the alcohol is hidden I just find the beer is not what I am looking in dopplebock its seems to be to muted in flavor

Surprised to find the Cap Square Series of this -- thought it was going to be tap only.

A -- Clear, deep copper color with an off-white to light tan head (right in the middle of my usual spectrum) that holds up very well.

S -- Mild DMS that wisps away to fresh, spicy hops -- yes, a hop nose in a lager!

T -- Caramel and spicy hops in balance -- even some mild roastiness that I wouldn't expect in a Doppelbock, some vague fruit esters in the finish and spicy hops in the aftertaste. Actually rather mild in character all around for a Doppel.

M -- Mouthfeel is soft to crisp with a rather light body.

D -- It's certainly drinkable, and surprising that this is 8% -- very well hidden (well attenuated?). On the whole, not what I'd expect from a Doppel, let alone a Doppel from Capital.

3.9/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: amber, light brown tint. 1 finger solid oatmeal head. lacing was
great!

S: sweet bread malt,

T: bread, malt, mild date/fig flavor, alcohol is well hidden. hint of bitter in the finish.

M: medium body, solid carbonation, goes down very smoothly.

D: Capital are an interesting brewery, mighty fine at bocks. This beer is a fine dopplebock, like the other delicious bocks they produce (Autumnal Fire, Maibock, Blonde Dopplebock). This is quite nice and if you are curious about US bocks, this is a great brewery to explore.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. It pours a clear amber color. A 1/8 inch off-white head forms leaving a nice over-the-top lacing. No sediment and carbonation minimally visible.

The aroma initially reminded me entirely of banana bread. As it warmed, it definitely took more of a caramel sweet aroma combined with some earthy tones.

The taste has the well known Capital caramel malt sweetness up front and center. There is an earthy/pine hops presence that balances reasonably.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a carbonation that is lacking. It goes down well but does not stand out.

This beer is easily drinkable and it doesn't surprise me. ABV is quite well hidden. Capital is very good at the dopplebock beers and this is another solid member to their collection.

3.65/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

pretty quiet release, found a 4pack at Star. Yet another doppelbock from Capital - at least they are all solid

appearance: served in the often neglected de koninck chalice, rich dark amber body, light beige film but really no retention. clear and placid

smell: caramel, dry biscuit, some earthy european hops

taste: pretty mild - sweet caramel, biscuit and bready notes, mild earthy hops, dry toasted malts. Alcohol is completely undetected - good, but not great and probably my least favorite of the capital doppelbocks

mouthfeel: medium-light, smooth

drinkability: good

4.28/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. 8.0% ABV, 3150 on the neck (Nov. 10, 2010).

A - Beautiful clear and bronzy beer pours fourth. It's relatively quiet and the two-finger, bone-colored head has good retention for the alcohol. Some lace makes an appearance on the glass.

S - The full-flavored aroma reminds me of a handful of hops, freshly picked. Dirty, earthy, resin-rich hops with a smooth and subtly sweet malt backing. Notes of caramel, biscuit, and toast.

T - Fantastic balance between a sweet caramel and Vienna malt toastiness that follows through to the finish and a great earthy hop flavor up front. Mellow but great resin and pine-like attributes.

M - Medium-full bodied and silky smooth, the Tett goes down wonderfully. A great hop bite adds just enough bitterness before the sweetness fades out.

D - A hint of the alcohol is there but doesn't interfere with the great balance. I'm excited to see it on shelves because I had the joy of having this while still fermenting in a keg for the Capital Ray's event not too long ago, straight from the tett you might say (I couldn't resist). Capital proves, once again, that they make one kick-ass dopplebock.
