A - Copper, mostly hazy but translucent. Very little head, but a touch persists. A bit of lacing, but not much.

S - Very subtle sour note, with a bigger toffee hit.

T - Follows through with the toffee nose, sweet and delicious. Close brings that light sourness, along with a bit of bitterness.

M - Mild carbonation, but brisk and easy to drink, with no sign of the solid ABV.

O - A delicious malt-forward flavor. Sweet, with the ABV well hidden, but definitely there. Solid.

Crisp, strong aroma has a malty core with an underpinning of honey, cinnamon and cloves. Pours a clear, dark copper, almost mahogany, with a fairly thick light wheat head. Malty flavor has firm earthy, caramel, and honey tones with just hints of spice and wood. Texture has decent body and fizz, leaving an earthy, slightly woody finish and a persistent tingle. Happy Autumn!

Pours slightly hazed reddish-orange-tinted amber with a thin head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of dried fruits, caramelized grain, hint of alcohol warmth.

The taste is of sweetened dried fruits - apricot and tangerine - with caramelized grain and bready notes. There is a spicy dry touch in the finish. Booze gives warmth without being too hot.

It is full-bodied and smooth. Strong, yet refreshing.

Overall, a wonderful traditional doppelbock. Reminds me of Paulaner Salvator (more than the darker Ayinger Celebrator). A great example of the style - a very enjoyable brew, especially on a cold autumn day!
