330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger fluffy khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, raisin, toast, toffee, molasses, apple, dark bread, cocoa, light roast, light nuttiness, and light floral. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of malty notes and light fruity esters. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, molasses, apple, dark bread, cocoa, roasted malt, light nuttiness, and light smoke. Lingering notes of caramel, toffee, molasses, dark bread, toast, raisin, apple, roasted malt, cocoa, and light smoke on the finish for a good bit. Excellent flavor balance and complexity of robust malty flavors and light fruity esters; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent doppelbock! Great balance and complexity of robust malt flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

this is the essential doppelbock as far as I am concerned. it is true as true can be to the style, and is downright delicious. flawlessly made. the pours is a rich mahogany to molasses color with a foamy khaki head a few fingers tall, excellent retention. looks like a lot of body and a lot of malt character, judging by looks alone. the nose is really heavy malt, some roast, some caramel, some dessert or bread pudding type of aromas, and more alcohol than you would think at only 6.7% abv. the flavor is really heavy, dark wheat, heavy toasted barley, and mineral rich water are evident. the yeast is also characteristically german, bready and drenched in dark fruit. there is a peculiar weight to this that makes it wholly satisfying but may reduce drinkability to a certain degree. its rich and smooth, and the carbonation is slight. its a perfect early spring beer to me, and one that would work well with grilled meat, a peppery arugula salad, or even fresh baked cookies. its not for everyone, but if you like the style, this is the go!
