A: Pours a dark brown with dark red highlights against the light. A finger of tan head with small bubbles forms initially, but soon dissipates leaving only a thin layer behind.
S: Lots of dark fruit notes like raisins, figs, and dates. Alcohol is also noticeable, but mixes well. This is all layered on top of a smooth cocoa-malt base. A very rich aroma.
T: The taste mirrors the aroma with more of those sweet dark fruit flavors. The alcohol isn't as noticeable as it is in the aroma. The finishing flavor is that dusty dry cocoa flavor with a sweet dark malt note. Again, a very rich array of flavors.
M: It keeps from being too heavy or sticky sweet on the tongue, but still coats the mouth and has a not insubstantial body.
O: A very excellent example of the style. Sweet and rich without going overboard. A dessert beer, but a complex one that makes you stop and think about what flavors you're getting.

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
