I should start off by saying that although I had this on tap, it was not the conventional tap. While at an Ayinger brauhaus in Munich, this was available in a large wooden keg that was just tapped with a wooden faucet. Wasnt quite as carbonated as the regular tap version, but was not exactly a cask version either. It was also a tiny creamier tasting than the tap version. Other than that, it was pretty much the same.
Ok, the color was a dark ruby, almost brown, with a tannish colored thick head.
The smell was almost a woody malt scent which was very enjoyable. The aroma lasted well into the drink.
The taste was that of malt and raisin. Maybe a little berry tasting as well. Extremely well balanced.
The mouthfeel was typical of the doppelbocks but maybe a bit more mellow. Very full and inviting. It is a beer that you dont mind holding in your mouth a bit longer to get a bit more taste.
This is a very drinkable beer. Being not as strong as some of the other doppels, it doesnt give you that boozy aftertaste, nor does it have you drunk insanely fast.

330ML bottle with no date, poured into my Troegs mug...
A - Dark muddy brownish/black color with a perfect one finger head and nice tan head. A sticky lace holds throughout consumption
S - Caramel and malts are predominant for me. Very good aroma that makes you crave it
T - Dark fruits, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and with a malty backbone. Absolutely perfect for the style
M - Smooth, medium body with a low carbonation. Ultra smooth finish
O - Doppelbocks aren't usually my thing but there's no way you can't appreciate how great this beer is. The 6.7% masks amazingly well. I could crush this beer so easily. The unique flavors meld perfectly together. This is absolutely world class and I'm kicking myself for continually passing it up time after time
