Excellent mouth feel med-full bodied. First aroma is malt followed prunes/plums, caramel then raisins. Some may think molassas but think about what prunes/plums smell like. Very malty in fact-melanoidins, gotta love that decoction mash and long boil. Hop addition is perfect. This brew is made to perfection for a doppelbock. Nice tan head followed by lace. I also reccomend the Smuttynose S'muttonator, a doppelbock. These two are my favorite doppelbocks.

First time in a long time since I had a Doppelbock. I did enjoy this. It reminded me of an American Stout in body but without any coffee or chocolate overtones.

No hops, no dryness to this one. Just tones of balanced malt coming at you.

Pours a very dark brown color, with a soapy light tannish head. There does not seem to be too much carbonation, and there is a little lacing. The odor is malty, sweet, slight roasted note, slightly nutty, some coffee and dark fruits. The taste is very rich, silky at first, malty, vanilla, dark fruits, dark berry, a slight dry bitterness at the very end.
