look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Dark brown - near black - with some ruby highlights. Darker than I'm used to in the style. About a half a finger's head worth of creamy mocha colored head. Healthy dose of carbonation. Looks like a nice stout

Aroma: Roasted malt, caramel, molasses, coffee, a faint nuttiness. This is a rich smelling brew.

Taste: Richness follows nose. Very malty. Definitely coffee and some nuttiness. Possibly chestnuts. There isn't nearly as much sweetness as the nose led me to believe. The caramel and molasses aren't really present in the flavor. Ends roasty with a slight metallic aftertaste. Overall very clean tasting

Mouthfeel: Silken smoothness. Robust. Slightly watery that leaves the mouth feeling very clean. Creamy

Overall: I've been wanting to try this since my first forray into dopplebocks with Troegs' Troegenator and I'm very happy to say that it doesn't disappoint. Extremely clean tasting without sacrificing any flavor. Not as high in abv as others but better overall in my opinion. I would get this over Paulaner's Salvator any day of the week. A great example of the style and a great beer

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

330 ml bottle poured into a pils glass

A- Dark brown pour with a one finger light brown head. Reatins at about a 1/2 finger, with rings of lacing sticking around after each gulp.

S- Roasty, caramel, slight coffee undertones. No hop character in the smell.

T- Malt. A little coffee, a little less chocolate, and even less caramel, but all the most prominent flavors. A little bit of iron in the aftertaste.

M- This is kind of chewy in consistency, with a bittersweet finish. Carbonation is mild, giving it a smoother, more drinkable beer.

O- This is a really good beer. It tastes great and I really like the feel. Nice and malty, and it won't knock you down if you have a few in a sitting.
