I gave this one a straight 4.75 on all attributes; even though I would struggle to find flaws that prevented it from being a perfect 5. Pours a dark brown color with a phenomenal thick foamy head that almost spilled over. Furthermore, the creamy lace retains throughout the whole drink. Wonderful aroma reminds me of coffee, dark slightly bitter chocolate, and sweet earthy grains. Taste aligns with aroma and includes an aftertaste that is creamy and with a tiny touch of hops. Furthermore, there is a mild alcohol aftertaste like a dark dessert liqueur. Great feel; carbonation light but tingly on the tongue when served cold. This is the first doppelbock I have reviewed here and I feel like I have struck gold by picking amongst the cream of the crop for this style. I will enthusiastically seek this one out again!

330mL bottle in pint glass. Beer pours intensely dark brown, nearly opaque, but with a red hue. Mild but malty aroma. Flavor is super rich, with layers upon layers of malty goodness. Carefully balanced, and neither bitter nor chalky. This is adult candy. Alarmingly drinkable at 7.2% ABV, too.

A: (3/3) Black but not hazy with very creamy brown head that dissipates very slowly
S: (10/12) Dark raisiny with some burnt toffee and a somewhat noticeable alcohol undertone
T: (17/20) Sweet, almost like a burnt butterscotch candy with a hint of coffee or dark chocolate
M: (5/5) Medium carbonation but very dry
O: (8/10) You want a double bock? Seriously, buy this guy. It’s awesome. It’s got everything you could want in a balanced dark beer. Dry enough to offset the richness of the flavor. Just enough alcohol to not overpower the darker aromas. Also, it’s got a plastic ram on the bottle. Don’t see that everyday.
