Dark brown to black with a ruby irredescence this Doppelbock presents itself quite elegantly. The head was quite fizzy and fleeting, though.

The scent is of raisin and molasses, sweet and dry. Theres a Hint of malt in the back but the molasses wins out.

This is smooth on the tongue, smoky sweet and dry. There's a nice burnt malt flavor but offset by a sweet prune or raisin. The burnt blends well with the sweet and creates a tasty well balanced bock.

A: Dark brown, somewhat transparent when held up to light, with a slight ruby tinge. Modest tan head, not much retention and no lacing.

S: Bittersweet malts, soy sauce, sugar.

T/M: Sweet, smooth malty goodness. Some caramel along with that distinctive soy sauce-like flavor. Sweet and sugary up front, followed by some dark roasty notes and a lingering bitterness on the followthrough. Very sweet and malty with just enough edge to make it interesting. Goes down easy and really tasty.

O: This is my first doppelbock and it seems to be the staple of the style, and it definitely lives up to its rep. A really good and interesting beer.

A: Pours a very dark amber/brown color with two fingers of dense off white head. Retention and lacing are superb.

S: Roast, love, prunes, and a hint of banana. Rather mild for the style. As the beer warms, prunes come out more and more.

T: Similar to the aroma. Roast is interestingly quite strong, particularly for a style it's not really expected in. Bready malts are also quite strong - this reminds me of having a rye bread. Raisins and clove come out behind the roast and breadiness, though they are mild.

M: Medium to thick mouthfeel with creamy carbonation.

O: Not exactly what I've come to expect for a Doppelbock, but I really enjoyed this beer. It has a distinct roastiness and breadiness that is quite nice, but I could have used more fruitiness and caramel flavors. I also en
