A: Pours brown, frothy khaki head. Pretty good retention and lacing.

S: Roasted malt, toffee, a touch of smoke.

T: Really big roast and wood character to start, right into dark fruit sweetness...mostly raisins. Has some complexity. The finish leaves only a trace of alcohol.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation as well. Fits the flavor profile.

O: Deserving of the recognition it receives. A winter classic for me.

11.2oz bottle.

A- Pours a deep cola brown color with an off-white foam head that leaves great lacing.

S- Caramel malt, toffee, and some peat coming through in the nose. A faint whiff of alcohol as well.

T- Dark fruits, caramel, and coffee are all very prominent initially. Prunes, dark candy sugar, raisins, walnuts, alcohol, and toffee show themselves as it warms.

M- Medium bodied with good carbonation. Very easy to drink.

O- Widely regarded as one of the top doppelbocks out there, and IMO it has earned the recognition.

Aroma - Sweet caramel with a slight sharpness I can't place

Appearance - Dark red with a tan thin head. Not much residual carbonation.

Taste - Doubly malt sweet up front but then a smooth flavor profile.

Notes - Just plain good and drinkable. I would be concerned that the heavy maltiness might become tiring over a session.
