4.16/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pours a huge beige head with stout-like action. Retention is excellent. Brew appears a solid black, but when held up to the light, reveals garnet and brown highlights and some translucency. Nice but scattered lacing.
Nutty, bready, fruity aroma: dark fruits (prunes), yeast, dark bread. Yummy. Smells like a lighter, yet sweeter, Belgian Dubbel.
Tastes like one, too! Very, very sweet, almost syrupy; liquid bread with a huge prune and yeast presence. Slightly boozy. Some caramel malt presence.
Mouthfeel is light and very drinkable, a clear indicator of the style, despite the huge flavor profile. Again, a little boozy on the back-end, despite being only 6.7%.
This is a nice, super-drinkable dark beer that goes down easy.
No bottle date I could detect.

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
