Lots of chocolate and sweet, nutty, lightly roasted malt in the aroma. Flavor is roasty and chocolatey, with a kick of heat at the back of the throat. Was billed as a dopplebock, so the chilis were a surprise. Fairly spicy, but the malt character is very pleasant. I really wish I could try the base beer without the spice. It's a touch hot for my palate. And it's really not a dopplebock.

Served in Duvel tulip glass.

Leave it to modern humans to take a cool metaphor and turn it into a comparatively meek concrete expression of remembrance. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sienna-topaz topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises lightly-toasted rye bread, maple syrup, candied orange peel, mild booze, a hint of fennel, and what seems like a pinch of clove. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more fennel, a more darkly-toasted bread component, some mild notes of red apple skin, and an increased feel of booze, which nearly comes off as too much for its own good. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, a mostly solid d-bock, though a bit too boozy for my tastes.
