From tap to stein glass

A: Pours dark brown, maybe a shade lighter than black, with a vibrant dark brown head. Little lacing remains under the weight of this viscous brew.

S: Notes of molasses and bready malts up front. A rich bouquet as touch of ripe fruit plays with the chocolate and alcohol notes.

T: Malt forward with flavors of molasses and toffee prominent. Rich, chewy, layered, the ripe fruit in the nose plays a bigger role here. A touch of hop astringincy adds balance, and all of the flavors work in harmony.

M/notes: There's a reason dopplebocks work as meal replacements, and this brew highlights why people can go weeks consuming nothing but this beer. The flavors are delicious, the complexion is satisfying. I try to keep this around as much as possible.

330ml bottle from the LCBO, into a tulip. Best before March 2012.

Poured a dark burgundy/brown, almost opaque. Fairly dense dark tan head, a thick collar sticks around with a thin head. Nose has some dark breads, caramel and toasty malts. Taste has some toasted dark bread/cereals, some chocolate, toffee and light grain notes. Loads of malt flavour. No alcohol on the palate but catches up after a couple of bottles. Smooth, sticky and drying body and finish. Opens up and really becomes something else at around room temp. Didn't understand the comparison to liquid bread until I actually got into this. Really warming and essential drinking for the cooler months.

Pours a deep brown almost black and opaque. A small tan head dissipates into a wisp after a few seconds.

Aroma is some sweet bready malts maybe a bit of raisin.

Malty bready sweetness assaults the taste buds. Hints of raisins and fig before finishing with a little spicy hoppiness.

Not terribly thick on the mouthfeel so it doesn't get cloying.

I generally don't like more malt forward brews so I doubt I'll go back to this one often, but for the style it is pretty good. I was expecting a bit more complexity, but it's still good.
