Seemed like a good one to pop open on my birthday :-)

A: Rich brown color, displaying plenty of red when held up to the light. Good clarity. 1/4" head forms but recedes quickly. Minimal lacing.

S: Sweet fruity aroma, actually reminiscent of a belgian dubbel or quad. Some toffee and caramel. Slight banana esters

T: Bready and roasty, but avoids any bitterness or acridity. Moderately sweet.

M: Medium carbonation. Full bodied, but still quite drinkable.

O: Gets good marks for being practically the definition of the style (although the aroma seems a bit off style to me). That said, maybe the style doesn't really appeal to me, or there's some "intangible" missing, but it doesn't excite me at all.

Pours with a tall head thats quite dense. The color is rich auburn as in deep auburn.
Aroma is mostly sweet malts with a toffee smell.
Taste is smooth and malty with sweet malts dominating. There is a sutle anise or molasses taste in there too.
There is a bit of alcohol in the taste too but the abvis 6.7 I don't know.
Good though, real good.

I really like this beer. It has a nice stout kind-of-taste of coffee, caramel, and dark chocolate. It pours dark and is very rich. Love the head on this, too. The smell of roasted coffee and chocolate entices my taste buds very nicely. Yeah! Hey, even the label design is cool! I love this dopplebock!

A: Rich coca cola caramel tones. Short creamy light dark head. Mild perfect carbonation for Doppelbock.

S: Sweet malt and caramel. Incredibly complex, rich smell.

T: Rich yeast, with roasted caramel. Mild bourbon notes and toasted bread. It's amazing. Doesn't have many peers.

M: Very smooth and creamy. Medium body and strong. Extremely drinkable. I just want to keep drinking this.

O: This is a work of art! Nothing is in excess. Well balanced, complex yet completely drinkable. Expensive but worth it in every way. Good luck finding it.
