look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pours deep brown with a nice thick, frothy khaki head. Smell and taste is pretty much straight up raisin bread, minus the cinnamon but add some molasses. Flavor includes a nice creamy finish with a splash of some cocoa. A medium bodied to fuller, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, very nice. Glad I finally got to try this one and I will definitely try it again.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a dark mahogany. Huge light brown head. Fades very slowly, however only leaves fluffy tufts of lacing behind here and there.
S: Loads of dark fruits. Raisin, grapes, cherry, plums and fig. Very earthy with some hints of cocoa and caramel.
T: As mentioned above, dark fruit overload. There's cherries, raisin, figs, prunes and grapes. Lots of them. Very earthy in the middle. Hints of cocoa on the back end with more hints of dark fruit, slightly drying.
M: Medium bodied, a bit drying.
O: A well-attenuated example of the style. Lots are very sweet, this is actually surprisingly dry. The earthiness and dark fruits really shine here. Excellent beer, surprising complexity in only 6.7%.

If you like Doppelbock's, this one is outstanding.
Had it at the Flying Saucer Beerfeast in Sugar Land, Texas.
All the typical DPB flavors. Really was great. Had to go back for more on this one at the festival.
I wish I could have tried it side by side with Real Ale's 16th anniversary Dopplebock. Would love to compare them head to head.
