330 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a dark black with a one finger tan head.

S - Plums, slight booze, toasted grains.

T - Toasted grains, malts, vanilla, banana. The sweetness is at a good level, not over the top.

M - Great level of carbonation, sits full, but not overly heavy.

O - A very tasty doppelbock. Good level of balance, and is highly drinkable.

Appearance- Very dark brown with some reddish coloring as well. Pours a one finger, white colored, and creamy textured head.

Aroma- Sweet caramel malts,maybe some chocolate, mild toasted malts, and herbal hop aromas.

Taste- Strong caramel malt flavors and dark fruit at first and balanced perfectly with a toasted malt flavor and mild spicy hops at finish.

Feel- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, almost creamy texture, and very smooth in the finish with a very pleasant lingering malt presence.

Overall- This is definitely worthy of being regarded as one of the best doppelbocks out there. What sets this apart from other great ones like Korbian and Salvator is the mouthfeel, which is creamy, smooth, and clean. As far as flavor goes its right on par with the other two, yet unique in its own right. Great beer and a must try doppelbock.

A: Pours an opaque black. Produced a 3 inch thick head that dissipated to a thin line (I poured this too quickly and got a little spill over - FOUL!)

S: Sweet slightly fruity. A slight burnt sugar/caramelized smell.

T: Mild carbonation behind a sweet brew with flavors of malty molasses. It tastes as strong as the 7+% on the bottle.

M: Very smooth and creamy. Carbonation not too bright, but holds up well

O: Great dopplebock!

-great head, very dark for a lager brewed beer in my opinion
-slightly fruity smell with a crisp yeast scent along with it caramelized
- crisp yet a darker toasty flavor that is complemented with a sweet fruit taste
-rides the palate like a lager, has the flavor of a darker beer though
-overall one of the best beers i have had, have had it before and will buy it time and time again

Smells of dried fruit, malty, currant. Tastes of dried fruit, yeasty, cherry, some wheat, really nice malt flavor. Really well balanced. Medium body and carbonation. Dark fruit and malt aftertaste. This is truly a treat.
