Wow. This is damn near a Baltic Porter, it's so dark. Everyone seems to have their own definition of doppelbock, and Ayinger thinks it should be rich, roasty, chocolatey, slightly bitter and really smooth. This one definitely deserves its world class reputation.

Dark color, almost black, with mahogany reflexes. Brown beige foam, average.
The smell is dry fruit (hazelnuts over all), earthy and dusty, and a liquer-like finish.
Dust, earth, cocoa, hazelnut and hint of coffe in the taste, in a roasted malt background.
The aftertaste is of malt, dry fruit, raisins, and then cocoa and chocolate, and a point of astrngency. All in following waves, pleasant.
Absolutely to try!

Pours a beautiful deep brown, almost black, with a robust tan head that fades to some lacing. The smell was sweet, almost fig with coffee hints. The taste was very good, cream, coffee, grain. The mouthfeel was creamy smooth, slightly thick with a bit of carbonation. The drinkability was very good, this is a beer i like to savor for a while but its highly drinkable. Just because of the richness its not a brew I could have too many of in a sitting.

First time reviewing this one. Have had it a number of times over the years.

A: Super dark brown. Minimal white head.

S: Very dominating malt smell up front. Some toffee in the back.

T: Dark malt city. Brown sugar and hints of candy.

M: Excellent. Med to Heavy body. Carbonation is perfect for this beer.

D: Very drinkable. The problem for me with bocks is that the malt can become so overpowering as to render the beer undrinkable. Ayinger took it down a notch and it helps the overall drinkability. Worth it for the plastic goat alone!
