poured into a tulip.

seen this likened to cola in color, pretty dang close. sticky 1/2 inch head that refuses to budge. excellent retention.
nose - dark, malty, fruit. almost a hint of grape juice, some raisins, figs, etc.
taste - like a roaring fire in a glass. full across the palate, more raisins, tons of maltback, is there seriously any alcohol here? impossibly well blended. mouthfeel is tremendous, exceptional representative of the style.

First had: ?

I have had this on tap and in bottles, but as to when and where I first had it, I do not remember. Probably Eulogy or something.

Cherry cola color, hazy and thick, with a decently-sized tan head that recedes quite a bit but still leaves a good coating of lace on the glass. Malty aroma, caramel, roast, cocoa and dark fruits. Taste of sweet malts and caramel, roasted grains and nuts, raisins and figs, a touch of chocolate; malt-dominant, but I still pick up a faint hoppiness in the finish. Medium-bodied, flavorful, and highly drinkable.

A: Pours deep burgundy with a large creamy tan head. Slow dissipation leaves lots of lacings.

S: Lots of dark dried fruits. Slightly roasted sweet malt. Almost syrupy. Complex. Chocolate.

T: Rich! Chocolate and coffee. Roasted dark malts, molasses. Dark dried fruits. Liqourice. Bitter hops. Tart.

M: Aftertaste is very long, sweet and bitter at the same time, slitghtly sour. Body is full and carbonaton is low. Very nice.

O: This is a very nice and complex Doppelbock.
