Truly one of the most delicious beers in the world. The Paulaner monks practiced making awesome double bock beer for several centuries and they definitely got it right. If you are in LA, you can find this beer at Nick's in Beverly Hills. It is the only place I have ever seen it.

On draft. Even more interesting and lively than in bottle. Sweet, malty, creamy, dark sweet fruits, like fig. Always a treat.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

look - dark brown to black color, ruby red when held up to a light. creamy tan head that dissipated fairly quickly. good lacing

smell - roasted malts, coffee

taste - follows the smell, very rich

feel - full bodied, smooth, and slightly creamy

overall - didn't live up to the hype for me. It is a great beer, no doubt, but there was no wow factor or any reason that it should be above the rest

The beer pours dark and smooth with medium head. The smell is malty and NO hops. Taste is sweet and Carmel, molasses, sweet corn. Silky and smooth, lacy. Not my favorite beer style so while i appreciate this beer and how well made it obviously is, it's only an occasional drinker for me.

Pours a dark amber with a deep dark ruby cast. Excellent head volume, World Class lacing and retention. Light nose of molasses coupled with a bit of dark fruit (plum, fig) and a slight undertone of spice. Medium bodied with a nice smooth texture that has creamy aspects. Below normal carbonation with just a touch of effervescence in the finish. The World Class flavor profile is reasonably intense, very complex and superbly balanced. It begins with a wave of sweet malt that is, at first, caramel and slightly burned dark sugar then flows into a rich molasses. In the middle as the molasses fades, dark fruit becomes evident as does an ever so slight hop bitterness. The finish is a slow sweet fade with notes of alcohol.

Excellent mouth feel med-full bodied. First aroma is malt followed prunes/plums, caramel then raisins. Some may think molassas but think about what prunes/plums smell like. Very malty in fact-melanoidins, gotta love that decoction mash and long boil. Hop addition is perfect. This brew is made to perfection for a doppelbock. Nice tan head followed by lace. I also reccomend the Smuttynose S'muttonator, a doppelbock. These two are my favorite doppelbocks.
