look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - A very ornate 330ml bottle with a white plastic goat trinket tied around the neck on a red elastic string. Nice decoration for something bar-related. Poured a dark black color. When held up to a strong light from behind, appeared more of a burgandy color. Poured reasonably cool from about two hours refrigerated. A two-finger head formed that resolved into a thin layer. Glass was rinsed prior to the pour which (I'm sure) hindered the head formation. Thin carbonation.

Smell - Chocolate aroma with a roasted malt presence. Nice warm aroma with a slight sweet bit as well.

Taste - Nice malty taste, plain and simple. The roasted/chocolate presence is felt in each swig. There is a comfortable hoppy bite at the end, but it is well balanced and does not come as a suprise. This is one dense/malt-fest. Had I not known this was a doppel, I would have picked this as an Irish stout!! This is a meal.

Mouthfeel - Wow, this fills your mouth and palate with goodness. Very dense and very heavy (but in a good way). Giving a swish doesn't stimulate an overly carbonated "bite", but at the same time creates an even fuller mouth presence.

Drinkability - Dangerously drinkable!! This is one fine doppel. I will very much have this as part of my stable of offerings. I only hope my guests are worth it!!

If you like Doppelbock's, this one is outstanding.

Had it at the Flying Saucer Beerfeast in Sugar Land, Texas.

All the typical DPB flavors. Really was great. Had to go back for more on this one at the festival.

I wish I could have tried it side by side with Real Ale's 16th anniversary Dopplebock. Would love to compare them head to head.

Really dark brown with a tan head. Very interesting and complex aroma profile. Malty with no significant trace of bitterness. Caramel and chocolate flavors are the most pronounced with a subtle roasted coffee flavor lying underneath. Very good mouthfeel with a pretty complex flavor profile. Truly a great beer.
