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

A: into a pilsener glass, deep amber brown beer with a couple of fingers of head; fuzzy collar persisted, some motes left behind; almost oily sheen inside glass

S: rich bready malt and molasses sweetness

T: some flavor-shifting here - started off with bold dark malt flavors, had an almost chocolately character later, and finished with some dark fruitiness, almost like raisins and dates.

M: smooth, medium-full body, some gentle carbonation fuzziness; teensy bit of stickiness

O: a celebratory beer for sure - easily my favorite doppelbock - and I'm not a big doppelbock guy or anything, but this is an excellent beer - reminded me of holiday ales and really good brown ales

11.2 oz bottle pours a very dark brown color with a creamy cap of tan head. Average retention and lacing.

Nose is sweet and caramely with a touch of dried fruit...raisins or prunes. Not sure Id go so far as to say chocolate, but there are some cocoa-esque notes in here.

Taste is wonderfully malty without being too burnt, toasty, roasty or otherwise bitter. Its so smooth and creamy. Malts are sweet, but never coming anywhere near cloying. There is a kiss of herbal hop bitterness on the finish as well. Just the right strength...some doppels, especially Americanized ones, seem to think they must clock in at 8 or 9 percent. This is one of those beers that you go back and revisit and wonder why the hell it has taken so long to buy again! This is the best doppelbock out there when fresh, I dont even really think it is debatable. Delicious.
