4.15/5 rDev -4.4%
Dark brown to black with a ruby irredescence this Doppelbock presents itself quite elegantly. The head was quite fizzy and fleeting, though.
The scent is of raisin and molasses, sweet and dry. Theres a Hint of malt in the back but the molasses wins out.
This is smooth on the tongue, smoky sweet and dry. There's a nice burnt malt flavor but offset by a sweet prune or raisin. The burnt blends well with the sweet and creates a tasty well balanced bock.

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.
