Pours a chestnut brown with ruby edges. The head was over two fingers of beige loveliness – this baby was live! The nose and flavor possessed the typical malty and bready notes that are indicative of a traditional doppelbock. The mouthfeel was very smooth and there was an ever-so-slight sweetness on the finish that was terrific. I could see this served as an excellent dessert beer.

A classic!

A. Pours a deep amber brown, with a dark tan head. Not quite black and still catches some light.

S. Bread pudding with raisins, malty, sweet, some toffee.

T. Bread pudding with raisins, drizzled with plum brandy sauce. This is divine and delicious. Many others flavors to pick out here. Alcohol is well integrated.

M. Viscous, very full and round. Coats your whole mouth.

O. Amazing beer. Not sure how I missed it, but it is among the best I have had. A must try.

I'm not sure how I've never drank this beer before now, but this just shot to my top twenty list easy.

Glassware: mug
What I see first: Pours nice, with a considerable head. Dark, cola-like color.

What I smell: I get a sweet vanilla/toffee smell, but that is an over simplification.

What I taste: I drank it slightly chilled or cellar temperature. Thing that struck me most was how smooth the after taste was. Initially you get that strong alcohol taste, but it quickly changes to almost a sweet bread-like heartiness. The more you drink the better it gets and it sort of just glazes your palate leaving you hungry for another.

Final Thoughts: To speak simply, I would like to put this on my corn flakes in the morning. This beer is freaking amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes this style of beer.

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a dark cola brown with a fluffy tan head of about 1 cm that fades to a thin edge layer. ARoma is some dark sweet malt with toffee, brown sugar, and caramel and a little bit of dark fruit.
First sip reveals an average body with silky smooth texture and very fine tingly carbonation that coats my palate on each sip.
Flavor is as the nose advertises, lots of sweet malt with brown sugar and some toffee, I also get a bit of dark fruit and the finish is a little sweet and some roasted notes.
There isnt much of a hop character anywhere and the alcohol is well hidden too.
This beer is great and I am drinking it very easily this evening. Worthy doppel for certain, dont overlook this beer.

Great beer that is not heavy to drink, with good taste.

Pours a nice dark beer. Has a little foam head. Smell is chocolate. Taste is like chocolate and coffee. It is a light beer considering it is a dark beer, very smooth like a nitro beer. Mouth feel is light.

Serving type: on-tap
