4.6/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance is a very dark, amber color. The doppelbock was poured into a glass. The initial 1-2 inch head died down very quickly. The aroma is very sweet and nutty, although not overpowering. The taste and mouth feel is where this beer really comes to life. It is very sweet when first hitting the tongue, but after lingering for a bit, the spiciness of this beer comes through. This is an excellent doppelbock. I will definitely have another.

4.35/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured chilled into small snifter glass.

Appearance: intense dark brown like molasses. A quarter inch of head which dissipated quickly. No lacings around the glass.

Smell: while chilled, picked up some caramel and vanilla. As the beer warmed up, I picked up whiffs of root beer.

Taste: sweet malt with a touch of bourbon. As it warmed up, noted flavor of Cola. Whiskey flavors became a bit more prominent. Finishes slightly burnt, maybe a little bit of ash. Not a huge malt bomb, I'd say more balance with the malt sweetness and finishes burnt. It wasn't overpoweringly sweet like I expected.

Mouthfeel: highly carbonated - kind of goes hand in hand with the slight Cola taste. No booziness or heat noted.

Overall: I am no expert with doppelbocks therefore I'm not sure how carbonated most doppelbocks are. Did wish it was down just a notch in this one. However this beer is outstanding. The flavors are well balance between the sweet maltiness and the burnt finish.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

From a bottle into a pint glass

A: Dark rich mahogany. Almost nothing in terms if light penetration. 1/4 inch of thick head no lace left on the glass.

S: toasted malts and molasses are the dominate aromas. Maybe some carmel notes but they are faint.

T: I get a lot of molasses and dried fruits. Also a big taste of toasted malts and a touch of hops

M: I wanted this to be a little heavier. It's thick and chewy but taste and flavor fade fast.

O: worth every pennie
