Decent head takes its time to settle into a decent cap on top of this clean dark brown body with some ruby tinge. Smells are beefy dark fruits, cereals, even soy sauce. This beer has an almost savory taste and a good deal of dried fruits. Some roasted barley and coffee. Finishes crisp, chewy, and a little spicy. Definitely enjoyable. I’d like to compare this one to the Troegenator sometime.

4.5/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a deep brown with a reddish tint and a one finger off-white head that receded to an off-white ring leaving abundant lacing. Very nice looking. Scents of rich caramel, sweet molasses, dark fruit, especially prune, brown sugar and bready malt. Very malt forward and rich and very true to style. Excellent. Flavor begins incredibly malty, with notes of molasses, dark fruit, especially prune and raisin, a light flavor of German hops and a light hint of chocolate, moving into some moderate smooth and warming alcohol and a light toasted flavor. Finish is dry with warming alcohol and slight chocolate. Aftertaste is malty and rich. A very nice, strong, rich, malt forward flavor, a classic example of the style. Excellent. Mouthfeel is full bodied with light carbonation and a smooth feel. Very nice, smooth and easy to drink, yet full bodied. A classic, true to style feel. Overall this is an excellent doppelbock. It hits every last style note in every last category and does it well. A joy to drink and probably my favorite example of the style.

4.23/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours translucent cola dark brown with 1/2 inch of off-white head that settles to a thick cap on top and leaves curtains of lace.

The smell is of cinnamon and other Autumn spices, coffee, cocoa, toffee and faint dark cherry.

The taste is of chocolate, coffee, Autumn spices, molasses and dark malt.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation. A steady stream of tiny bubbles rise up throughout the drink down.

A delicious mixture of many different flavors that all blend together to create an outstanding rich and decadent brew.
