This Stoudt's Place sure seems to have their shit together because here is another fine example of excellent brew! Probably not real close to the style"standards" but in taste and quality this is one Smooth Hoperator!
pours dark, clear and clean,somewhat transparent
smelled pretty wild with lots of different contrasts, Hoppy, Toasty, Fruity ,Bready Sweet like with some malt present, pretty cool!
taste was nice with with alot of the nose effects coming thru, SMOOOTH
medium to heavy mouth with a touch of carbonation
Overall a very nice brew, hope to be able to partake of this one again!

Yeah, I liked this, but not nearly as much as I thought I would. Somewhat watery for a dopplebock I thought. Nice earthy and hoppy flavor up in the middle however. No real hint of the alcohol and not a whole lot of nose. This came recommended from the bartender, but I just wasn't that impressed. Had some nutty and woodlike notes, but overall, just not a lot of flavor. Nothing else really bad about it, the taste that was there was good.

A-Pours brown with dense, cushiony, white head. Head retains very well. Random lacing.
S-Hoppy but layered in its maltiness. Hops are green and grassy and the malt is toasty and caramelly. It's smells like a hopped-out Doppelbock. Maybe it's the yeast that preserves that Doppelbock personality.
T-Hops come on quite strong on the first half my first sip. Then, the maltiness and yeast character kicks in. After the pine agp d grassy and generically bitter hops wash over, the caramel and brown maltiness and unique yeast start talking.
M-Medium bodied. Quite bitter. Medium carbonation.
O-Smooth Hoperator is a very unique brew. A hoppy Doppelbock is a neat idea. Decently entertaining label as well.
