One of the all-time great beers. Sweet and smooth and delicious. This is the standard bearer for this style.

One of the finest beers in the world. On draft, this deserves a '5'.
Pours dark. Light head.
Malty flavor dominates, with cocoa, coffee, meat... all kinds of wonderful savory flavors. No sweetness. Perfectly integrated.
Long finish of malt, meat, smoke, hints of licorice.

Pours a dark brown color with a small light brown head that dissipates quickly, leaving a thin, milky light brown at the surface. A little bit of lacing around the edges.

The aroma is sweet molasses and very lightly roasted chocolate.

As the bottle indicates, the taste is very rich. Sweet and smooth. Chocolate and molasses from the aroma are still present. Has a very milky and creamy finish.

Medium bodied. Silky smooth going down. Not much carbonation.

Overall, although I am not particularly well versed in Doppelbocks, this one is a very easy drinker, with excellent taste. Definitely deserving of its popularity.
