11.2 oz bottle pours a very dark brown color with a creamy cap of tan head. Average retention and lacing.

Nose is sweet and caramely with a touch of dried fruit...raisins or prunes. Not sure Id go so far as to say chocolate, but there are some cocoa-esque notes in here.

Taste is wonderfully malty without being too burnt, toasty, roasty or otherwise bitter. Its so smooth and creamy. Malts are sweet, but never coming anywhere near cloying. There is a kiss of herbal hop bitterness on the finish as well. Just the right strength...some doppels, especially Americanized ones, seem to think they must clock in at 8 or 9 percent. This is one of those beers that you go back and revisit and wonder why the hell it has taken so long to buy again! This is the best doppelbock out there when fresh, I dont even really think it is debatable. Delicious.

On tap at Bridgewater's Pub in Philadelphia, PA.

A - Dark brown with a thin tan head.

S - Toasted bready malt, caramel, somewhat nutty.

T - Amazing taste. Burnt toffee, caramel, toasted biscuit, and dark fruits. Lots of sweetness up front, but earthy hops keep everything in check. Notes of chocolate and nutty malt come through as it warms.

M - Creamy, smooth, medium-full body. Crisp and clean with decent carbonation.

O - All of the flavors here are in perfect harmony with one another. This is an all-around excellent double bock.
