Had only had this once, out of the bottle, years ago. Why haven't I had this again? Wow!

Among the darkest (if not THE darkest) and thickest-looking doppelbocks I can recall. The foam is a bit lighter than I would have expected (no roasted barley, just decocted?). Despite its appearance, it doesn't look like a (dry) stout. Looks heartier, that's for sure.

First impression of the smell is the unmistakably molasses, almost ginger snap aroma. Comes across like a dark, dense, molasses-y German bread with a bit of underlying dark fruit (black grape, cherry), and a kiss of alcohol.

While the taste, like the smell, screams "dark-toasty, lightly-spiced, dense, dark bread", I can't help but get a little peppermint(?!), as in, candy cane. Super rich-malty. The overall taste, maybe more than any other (German) beer, is that of "liquid bread". The body, for me, exhibits a filling-smooth, almost doughy quality. Perhaps it could be a little cleaner - but that's only what I'd expect from a lager. Can't argue with what this offers though. Such a rich malt character! - Dark-toasted bread - dark, but not roasty or bitter - bold molasses and background cherry. The depth of the malt flavor is excellent - sticks around on the palate for what seems endlessly.

This beer has some complexity but also very (unique) bold/loud flavors - more character and depth, but less clean than most. Whatever - I'm rambling here - it's a fantastic drink!
