This brew pours a dark brown with some red highlights. Appears much redder when held up to the light. There is a 1.5 finger off white head which lasts for some time and good lacing.
The smell is nutty, roasted and sweet malts. Some vanilla and smokiness as well as a biscuit smell. There is a touch of caramel as well.
The taste follows the nose; thick with nuts, roasted and sweet malts. Caramel vanilla and biscuty
The feel is thick, bready and chewy. There are some light resinous hop oil in the backend and some of the oil sits on the tongue after swallowing.
Overall this is a very good Doppelbock. Thick dark and well balanced with plenty of rich malts which make it taste like a meal in a bottle. This is a very good example of the style.

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
