look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Stone pint.

A- pours a dark brown with a 1 finger tan head. Some small bubbles cling to the glass.

S- sweet dark fruits, toffee, brown sugar, and slight roast.

T- toasted malts, brown sugar, sweet dark fruits, toffee, and faint coffee.

M- medium body and carbonation. Very smooth and easy drinking beer.

O- very good doppelbock, nice dark fruits and sweet malts. I could drink a 4 pack of this fairly easy over a couple hours.

4.55/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance:- Dark brown with ruby highlights; initial off-white head with nice lacing throughout tasting.

Smell:- Big malt waft from the pour filled with molasses, toast, slight dark fruit - prune, alcohol, and gentle hop spice.

Taste:- Malt dominates throughout with hop bitterness present but in a strictly supporting role. Lots of molasses/dark sugar, slight oily coffee, and prune. Smooth and warm with a slight smoke finish.

Mouth:- Medium-full body with medium carbonation. Warm and smooth.

Overall:- Delicious beer; complex and malty. Aromas and flavors work so well together. Bitterness is present to round off the big malt flavor. Nice and smooth; very good stuff.

I was really impressed with this beer, not just from a style aspect but from the taste of the beer itself. I would seek this one out. Yum.
