330ml bottle into Samuel Adams sensory glass. 3 finger creamy light brown head which reduces down to a light cap after a few minutes. Dark brown almost opaque color, though I note I can still see my fingers on the other side of the glass.
Aroma of caramel, toffee, and soy sauce which is weird and a tad bit off-putting. Tastes of roastiness, a bit sour and salty, resiny hops, all of which ride over a nice sweet maltiness underneath of fresh soft pretzel and plum. Interesting roastyness leads to light bitterness then fresh maltiness. Feels excellently balanced. Moderately long lightly bittersweet finish is nice.
Moderate carbonation feels crisp on the tongue with the initial roastiness. Medium light bodied mouthfeel. Drinkability is okay: tastes good and seems well balanced between the bitter roastiness and sweetish malt.

4.2/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A- Dark, thick, cola-colored body with a huge, frothy light tan head.
S- Raisins, cherry licorice, rich bready malt. Big aroma filled with rich malts.
T- Very similar to the aroma, big rich malts, raisins, a nice toasted flavor to it with lots of sweetness to balance it out. Some of the aroma and flavor reminds me of the cherry licorice pipes my dad used to buy me.
M- Not quite as thick and chewy as I am used to with doppelbocks, but still very nice and good for the style.
O- A nice example of the style and one of the originals. Not quite as big as a would have imagined, but a solid beer.
