look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a dark mahogany. Huge light brown head. Fades very slowly, however only leaves fluffy tufts of lacing behind here and there.

S: Loads of dark fruits. Raisin, grapes, cherry, plums and fig. Very earthy with some hints of cocoa and caramel.

T: As mentioned above, dark fruit overload. There's cherries, raisin, figs, prunes and grapes. Lots of them. Very earthy in the middle. Hints of cocoa on the back end with more hints of dark fruit, slightly drying.

M: Medium bodied, a bit drying.

O: A well-attenuated example of the style. Lots are very sweet, this is actually surprisingly dry. The earthiness and dark fruits really shine here. Excellent beer, surprising complexity in only 6.7%.

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.

Whew! This is one helluva beer. This doppelbock has a malt profile unlike anything I have ever tasted. One of the most complexly balanced flavors I have ever had the pleasure of tasting and without question the best doppelbock I have gotten my hands on. The profile begins with a smooth hit of tangy molasses, but directly before that flavor gets to be too much, the profile shifts to a great hit of hop bitterness and a twinge of alcohol. In addition I got a bit of what I think may be coriander, and it was all wrapped up beautifully with a harsh smoke note and a beautiful caramel coffee finish. It is not often I find doppelbock, but when I do I snatch up every bottle I can get my hands on.
