330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger fluffy khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, raisin, toast, toffee, molasses, apple, dark bread, cocoa, light roast, light nuttiness, and light floral. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of malty notes and light fruity esters. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, molasses, apple, dark bread, cocoa, roasted malt, light nuttiness, and light smoke. Lingering notes of caramel, toffee, molasses, dark bread, toast, raisin, apple, roasted malt, cocoa, and light smoke on the finish for a good bit. Excellent flavor balance and complexity of robust malty flavors and light fruity esters; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent doppelbock! Great balance and complexity of robust malt flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

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
