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!
