2012 release; poured into a goblet

A: Clear amber. Some lacing. An off-white half finger head that dissipates quickly.

S: Bready malts, grain, hay, barley.

T: Sweet, malty with molasses and bourbon heavily mixed in. Nutty. A bit of chocolate. Very smooth. Almost like a shot of Kentucky bourbon. Nice.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Looks like a year really set this one straight. A great sipper. The bourbon really makes this one a solid brew.

A clear amber orange in color with a medium tan head. Solvent alcohol and brown sugar in the aroma. After that is some sweet toffee flavor. A hint of bitterness in the finish. Rich mouth feel. Velvety smooth carbonation. Overall an excellent dopplebock.
