look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Deep chestnut brown with red highlight. Has 2 fingers of off-white head with moderate carbonation.

Toast, brown sugar, plum and grape.

Overripe plum, red grape and toasted pie crust. Brown sugar, toasted bread and caramel. Tiny hints of blueberry.

Full bodied, smooth and silky.

Balanced to perfection. This is the Doppelbock to end all Doppelbocks.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Stone pint.

A- pours a dark brown with a 1 finger tan head. Some small bubbles cling to the glass.

S- sweet dark fruits, toffee, brown sugar, and slight roast.

T- toasted malts, brown sugar, sweet dark fruits, toffee, and faint coffee.

M- medium body and carbonation. Very smooth and easy drinking beer.

O- very good doppelbock, nice dark fruits and sweet malts. I could drink a 4 pack of this fairly easy over a couple hours.

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

Appearance:- Dark brown with ruby highlights; initial off-white head with nice lacing throughout tasting.

Smell:- Big malt waft from the pour filled with molasses, toast, slight dark fruit - prune, alcohol, and gentle hop spice.

Taste:- Malt dominates throughout with hop bitterness present but in a strictly supporting role. Lots of molasses/dark sugar, slight oily coffee, and prune. Smooth and warm with a slight smoke finish.

Mouth:- Medium-full body with medium carbonation. Warm and smooth.

Overall:- Delicious beer; complex and malty. Aromas and flavors work so well together. Bitterness is present to round off the big malt flavor. Nice and smooth; very good stuff.

I was really impressed with this beer, not just from a style aspect but from the taste of the beer itself. I would seek this one out. Yum.
