4.03/5 rDev -7.1%
A: Dark brown, somewhat transparent when held up to light, with a slight ruby tinge. Modest tan head, not much retention and no lacing.
S: Bittersweet malts, soy sauce, sugar.
T/M: Sweet, smooth malty goodness. Some caramel along with that distinctive soy sauce-like flavor. Sweet and sugary up front, followed by some dark roasty notes and a lingering bitterness on the followthrough. Very sweet and malty with just enough edge to make it interesting. Goes down easy and really tasty.
O: This is my first doppelbock and it seems to be the staple of the style, and it definitely lives up to its rep. A really good and interesting beer.

O: Not exactly what I've come to expect for a Doppelbock, but I really enjoyed this beer. It has a distinct roastiness and breadiness that is quite nice, but I could have used more fruitiness and caramel flavors. I also en
