4.84/5 rDev +11.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
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

330ml bottle poured into the Libbey Craft Pub glass (like a pils glass but with a slight inward taper at the top).
A: This exciting ale poured a luscious dark brown like the color of beef stock or chestnuts. the head is a toasty tan, rocky and vibrant at about 2 fingers with medium retention. Full lace; the foam climbs up the glass.
S: Oh boy oh boy. Malty malt. Caramel. Figs. Prunes. Dates. Quite intense. All malt body. No hop. A little spicy fermentation.
T: Oh man. It's full of dark dried fruit, and then the malt backbone reveals itself: All toasty, roasty malt. Finishes with a slight bitterness from the roast. This is clearly an ode to rich malt as the West Coast IPA is to the hop.
M: Despite it richness, it feels bright and clean at first, but then coalesces into a sticky, but not unpleasant, tenacious syrup. Medium-heavy body with playful carbonation.
O: This beer is sensational. Not only the best bock I've had, but one of the best beers. Damn. I'd definitely pair this with roast game or roast pork with some spice. This is definitely an appropriate beer for roaring fires and red meat off the bone!
