Poured into a tumbler in late 2013.

S: Chocolate, slight coffee, very malty.

T: Coffee dominates. Chocolate, malt are there too. Also has bitterness.

O: This is a coffee bomb. I loved other doppelbocks, but the bitterness in this one was too overwhelming. Drain pour.

Pours dark brown with hints of mahogany and ruby towards the light, half finger head that sticks around.
Rich malty smell, with salty roasted grains, dark bread crust, some caramel, a big nut mix, some cocoa powder, faint dried plum. Big expectations.
Which are met entirely, and then some. Lots of dark chocolate, not too rough, but with a nice clear cocoa note. Some salted toffee, some caramel, rich nuttiness (peanut, walnut, faint pistachio). A dark fruit zing, subtle, with some nice dried fig mostly and some faint smoked plums. Faint vanilla and licorice. Gets roastier hinting some coffee but more especially dark bread crust. A bit of charcoal in the finish, mildly bitter, even with a nice German hop presence felt.
Medium to thick in body, oily, with a medium carbonation. Quite "full". Nice nutty, malty aftertaste.
A huge doppelbock, tons of taste, great balance, beautiful from start to finish. Deserves being a classic.
