Woo hoo!! Now we're talking, this beer is amazing. Love it ya gotta drink it. Reminds me a bit of Chimay blue strangely enough.

A- Very dark red/amber hue, almost strawberry brown.

S- Smells amazing of cherries and plums and a bit of raisony strawberry mix.

T- Tastes cherry and raisony... your darker fruits. Has a slightly belgian carmel taste, very drinkable and tastey

M- Very smooth almost milky texture

Overall this beer is a MUST BUY!

12 oz bottle.

A - Pours a dark cola brown with a creamy taupe head that settles to a thick cap.
S - Sweet and malty aromas of molasses, caramel, raisin, fig, and a touch of smoke. So robust and enticing, this is what a Doppelbock should be.
T - Taste is similar to the nose, bready malt flavors of caramel, molasses, and dried figs dominate, with a touch of chocolate, roasted nuts, and just a bit of copper penny oxidation.
M - Smooth and moderately creamy, with a medium-full body and good carbonation.
O - Certainly deserving of it's praise, this is a Doppelbock to be reckoned with and a shining beacon of the style.

A-Pours a dark ruby brown, quickly dissipating off white head.

S-Malty with a nicely moderated caramel sweetness. A bit of nice roast underneath.

T-Sweet malts and biscuity malt, some fig and raisin notes, some chocolate roastiness in the finish.

M-Light bodied, effervescent, crisp carbonation.

O-An awfully nice, drinkable doppelbock. Not terribly complex so perhaps a bit of a disappointment versus my expectations, but still very good.

Serving type: 330 ml bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a pilsner glass. The color is dark brown with caramel and ruby tones. A finger and a half of tanned head formed and dissipated to leave a spotted lacing and ring around the edge.

Smell: It is a pleasant balance of malts and dark fruit. Toasted grains, caramel, toffee, fig, a little coffee, and black raspberry. As the beer warms it emits scents of plum, perhaps raisin, and that boozy bock touch.

Taste: Yeah! It has that nice, helles kick of grassy hops. The mouthfeel is light, dry, and easily drinkable. The flavor is bitterer than the smell led me to believe. However, the malts shine, too, with flavors of toasted grains, caramel, toffee, cocoa, and hints of coffee and dark fruit.

Drinkability: It is a very solid brew. Mister Goat Ornament and myself could easily enjoy this throughout Lent.
