330ml brown long with no dates to speak of poured into a mug.
A: Thick and syrupy, a deep brown coming out of the bottle. Once in the glass it is pretty much black with only the faintest of light penetration around the edged. A glorious tan head adorns the viscous oil, clings to the glass and my nose.
S: Imagine a old school chocolate malted milkshake with a hint of vanilla essence added. It's a beautiful thing. The chocolate malts have a nice roasted finish. Very little hop spice or alcohol on the nose.
T/M: A meal in a bottle, as one would expect from a Doppelbock. A nice mild carbonation gives the otherwise creamy brew a bit of purchase on the tongue. Roasted toasted malt with some brown sugar and caramel flavors. Nice finish that lingers with that warming alcohol sensation. Extremely deep complex beer.
D: A slow roller to savor. I don't know why I waited so long to try this one. Should be the standard for the style.
