Saved for my 400th Review.
Pours a very dark brown garnet color with a thick and creamy tan colored head with a nice retention that eventually gives way to a heavy lace. Nose is dark roasted malts, molasses, and smoky charcoal. Full in body and slightly syrupy in texture yet still quite smooth. Taste is rich sweet dark malts and brown sugar up front followed by some espresso-like flavors and a touch of bittersweet chocolate. Towards the end, some raisiny notes and residual sugar sweetness express themselves while a hint of hop bitterness tries to bring some balance to the finish. Make sure you give this beer some time to warm after pouring to fully enjoy all of the complex aromas/flavors. This is a superb doppelbock.

Wow. So often when beer and wine come with little toys attached to the neck they're crappy products. In this case it's great.

Poured a 2" head which gradually dissipated to 1/4". Dark as coffee. It had a delicious dark roasted malt smell and taste with lots of chocolate and kind of a rye bread bitterness. Very flavorful stuff, including a long finish. I'd celebrate with this anytime.

Pours a deep mahogony brown with a good 2 finger head, great longevity and equally great lace. Outstanding roasted malt aromas, hints of coffee and vanilla. Huge chewy malt flavors. Earthy. Bits of dark caramel and coffee. Thick and syrupy and smooth as any I have ever tasted. The mother of all dobbelbocks. I don't give out 5's as no beer is perfect IMHO but this is as close as you can get with this style. A beautiful beer.

Had this beer at the Gingerman in Houston. Poured into a pint glass. Wow, this is the best dopple bock I've had so far. Poured an almost black color with a little red and brown in it. Aromas of chocolate, toffee, and brown sugar. The taste has more of the chocolate, brown sugar with the taste of figs and dates. What a great combination. Starts off sweet and finishes dry with an almost smoky finish. I love this beer. This was the first time I tried it and this beer is now my favorite dopplebock. Awesome
