330 ml bottle from Pearl Specialty Market and Spirits poured into an Aventinus weizen glass. The bottle came with a small plastic Celebrator goat wrapped around the neck.

A – Pours a deep dark brown with a big 2 ½ finger creamy tan head. Very good head retention. The finally mellows out to a nice thick ring of cream around the glass that leaves noticeable lacing behind.

S – Caramel, molasses and dark bready malts come out. Some slight chocolate notes seem to float around in the aroma. Dark fruits also play a part here. Perhaps raisins or dates.

T – Pretty close to aroma. The first things that hits my palate are the dark breads (similar to dark rye or pumpernickel) and molasses. The flavor becomes roasty and malty as it makes its way to the back of my palate. For some reason I'm not able to pick out any chocolate. The dark fruits seem to be less present in the taste. I do, however, pick up the slightest bit of bitterness as the beer exits.

M – Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. It's rich and chewy with a dry, clean finish.

O – This beer is everything a doppelbock is meant to be. A big, rich beer that definitely fits the "liquid bread" moniker. A damn near perfect example of the style. That being said, it's not my favorite doppelbock but I respect it for its characteristics.

From tap to stein glass

A: Pours dark brown, maybe a shade lighter than black, with a vibrant dark brown head. Little lacing remains under the weight of this viscous brew.

S: Notes of molasses and bready malts up front. A rich bouquet as touch of ripe fruit plays with the chocolate and alcohol notes.

T: Malt forward with flavors of molasses and toffee prominent. Rich, chewy, layered, the ripe fruit in the nose plays a bigger role here. A touch of hop astringincy adds balance, and all of the flavors work in harmony.

M/notes: There's a reason dopplebocks work as meal replacements, and this brew highlights why people can go weeks consuming nothing but this beer. The flavors are delicious, the complexion is satisfying. I try to keep this around as much as possible.
