First time in a long time since I had a Doppelbock. I did enjoy this. It reminded me of an American Stout in body but without any coffee or chocolate overtones.

No hops, no dryness to this one. Just tones of balanced malt coming at you.

Pours a very dark brown color, with a soapy light tannish head. There does not seem to be too much carbonation, and there is a little lacing. The odor is malty, sweet, slight roasted note, slightly nutty, some coffee and dark fruits. The taste is very rich, silky at first, malty, vanilla, dark fruits, dark berry, a slight dry bitterness at the very end.

The beer pours a very light head that takes a bit to dissipate. The head is a dark tan color with a creamy texture. The head does not completely dissipate but leaves quite a bit of presence on the top of the beer. The beer itself is a very dark caramel brown. The beer might appear to be black but rather a very dark brown.

The beer smell is hoppy with a deep and luxurious caramel malt smell. The hops add a bit of bitterness to the nose and has a deep contrast with the lighter caramel notes. The ops are fairly sharp and crisp. No floral or complete domination but quick and to the point. The caramel notes are pretty big but the hops seem to steal the show here.

The taste has the same notes but the caramel notes seem to be the stronger of two notes. The caramel taste seems to be very strong and dominate the taste while the bitter hops act to contain and reduce the sweetness of the caramel flavor to make it more drinkable. Overall, the beer has a nice caramel taste with a crisp hoppy finish to it.

The mouthfeel is extremely smooth and thick. Given the fact that the beer is malt heavy, this is not surprising. The beer is extremely smooth from the beginning to finish.

Overall, a fantastic doppelbock and worth getting. My only problem is that it's expensive to get. Other than, I really do recommend getting it.
