look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown with some ruby red at the bottom of the glass. Lots of rising bubbles and a solid three finger tan head with decent retention. Lacing is moderate.

Smell: Very bready and moderately sweet dark caramel malts with some toffee. Big hints of dark fruits with raisins, prunes, and figs. Also some hints of nuts, chocolate, molasses, and coffee. The malt and dark fruit aromas are very bold.

Taste: Starts out pretty sweet with a big dose of dark roasted caramel and toffee malts with a big taste of dark fruits. Notes of raisins, figs, prunes, and nuts. Also some subtle hints of chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and molasses. Finishes with a moderate earthy hop bitterness providing a little balance to the sweetness. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very creamy, chewy, and slightly sticky. Very smooth.

Overall: A really great Doppelbock. Probably my favorite overall lager.

S - Prunes/raisins and other ripe fruit. A slight hint of coffee.
