Pours a huge head that resembles a yeasty bread dough. Ready to "punch down" it's so fill of air and bubbles. The aroma of malt is as heavy as you will find in a bier.

This bier epitomizes a Dopplebock. The malt flavor is strong but not too sticky. Not as syrupy as some. Smooth in it's own way.

Chewy and delicious.

Purchased a 12oz bottle from Bacchus in Chattanooga. Out of the bottle it's a translucent, yet dark coffee brown. A HUGE head full of big bubbles literally erupts out of nowhere, 3-4 fingers high! Random small islands of lacing smatter here and there on the glass. Carbonation is middling, and seems to tone down rather quickly.

I can smell the relation between this and other lagers I've tasted. That undefinable (to me) sweet smell is present. However, it is backed by a confident roasty smelling malt that I've never encountered before in anything "lager-ish". This in turn mingles happily with an almost ethereal hop bitterness in the nose. It's far from one-dimensional.

This one goes down smooth and creamy, awesome mouthfeel. Taste leads off with a whispy hop-bitterness edge that transitions rapidly into those big malts. Taste is evident of mild smokiness, coffee, and flat unsweetened chocolate. Finish is ever-so-slightly dry. Alchohol taste is barely there, warming sensation is limited to a slight warmth pooling in my stomach later on in the beer. This beer is very balanced to me, and if I had another I would be hard pressed not to pour it too.

This beer takes the flavors that I really like in porters and stouts and somehow turns it into something I find highly drinkable. This would work equally as well for me sitting at a bar having a few and chatting it up, or sitting here savoring and chilling. Not to disrespect the beer but I could imagine it going great with traditional "beer" food (pizza, wings, appetizers, etc.) This beer and style has acquired a new fan.
