I picked this up to try something new. I haven't had a dopplebock in a long time, as I have been quite the hophead since I began drinking better beer.

Poured a 12oz. bottle into a flute glass.

Appearance - It pours a deep transparent brown color that is too deep to see through clearly - contains garnet hues as well. It produced a 1 finger head that quickly dissipated to thin halo. A quick swirl of the glass brings 1/2 finger head back for a few seconds before dissipating again - moderate to low carbonation.

Smell - The scent is pretty straightforward - dark fruit, fig caramel and chocolate with a bit of toffee. Toasty malts. Nothing overly deep or complex.

Taste - The flavor is pretty much just like the scent - caramel, toffee, dark fruit, fig, and chocolate. There is a quite a bit of toasted malt flavor and just a hint of molasses. There is a hint of salt toward the end that rounds out the flavor a bit.

Mouthfeel - This brew is medium bodied. The carbonation level is moderate, which suits the style well. Very smooth as it runs over the tongue.

Drinkability - Great beer. Very easy to drink. Smooth and tasty - I just wish that the smell had a little more bang. I could drink several of these in an evening, but would eventually want to drink something else to make things interesting. Overall very good. I would pick this one up again.
