Dark, dark brown colour with a big, fluffy tan head. Good head retention.

Somewhat oxidised and metallic malt aroma with some melanoidins and roast. A touch fruity and earthy.

Bready and fruity. This is a very malty lager with a nice and slightly unusual fruit ester profile. I find that the fruit character is a nice touch.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. A touch fizzy for me and oddly light for a doppelbock.

I like this a lot. Unlike my favourite, the Andechs Doppelbock, this is distinctly fruitier and a touch lighter. It's good.

bottle to tasting glass, though i've had it plenty times before.

A - deep brown with just enough head. come to daddy.

S - aromas of dark malt, caramel, maybe toffee?

T - beautiful. somehow everything good about lagers gets distilled, darkened, and concentrated in this german classic. dark candy sweetness, but not a whole lot of cocoa here, mostly caramel, toffee, molasses, that sort of thing. just enough residual smokiness to remind you of its german heritage. maybe a bit too much smoke on the finish, but really it's quite a work.

M - the lager-y effervescence is here, but with the thickness you'd expect from a beer this malty.

D - i don't know if i could drink this all night, but a full pint would certainly be doable. i'm normally a stout/porter/wee-heavy kind of dude, but this is an excellent alternative/addition to the dark beer offerings that i can foist on those that normally turn their noses at whatever i happen to be drinking. this is the gold standard of doppelbocks for a reason.
