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

Bottle poured into pilsner glass. Served at 50 degrees.

Appearance - dark mahogany with thick tan head.

Aroma - roasted malt and molasses.

Taste - sweet roasted malt that finishes slightly smoky.

Mouthfeel - rich and creamy with light carbonation.

Overall - a loaf of bread in a pilsner glass. I now understand the hype around this beer.

*Notes taken on 05/17/13

A: Pour is a dark chestnut brown with a lighter shade around the edges and some effervescent carbonation visible. The beer produces a cakey mass of dark tan foam head and displays some of the best retention I have seen in some time. The glass is left with patterns of chunky splotched lace after each sip. Indeed a very nice looking beer.

S: Smells of chocolate malt mixed with some deep plum and dried dark fruit. Rich and surprisingly aromatic with a sweet raisin bread likeness. A dash of alcohol noted. Enjoyable aromas overall with some nice dark roast and caramelized grains coming through.

T: Tastes is a wonderful blend of dark and brown malts with flavors of caramel chocolate cream and dark fruits like raisin, fig, and plum. Comes together very nicely like a nutty chocolate bread. There is a modest amount of earthy hop bitterness to the beer and alcohol is well masked throughout. Creamy and delicious with a great balance of charred sugars, milk chocolate, and dark fruits. Fantastic stuff.

M: Feel is moderately light and a touch watery thin but with some higher carb it brings a nice creamy consistency to the body. A soft bittering and fairly clean overall. Tad wet on the finish.

D: A delicious Dopplebock that is easily accessible and even easier to quaff. Rich with chocolate fruit and bread yet surprisingly light. I have not experienced many Dopplebocks but I can easily see why this is one of the best.

World class beer. Highly recommended and the little souvenir is a nice touch.
