look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12oz. bottle poured into a porter glass.

A- Beautiful. A deep, translucent amber, with a dense, fluffy off white head. Laces fantastically.

S- Bready, caramel malts with an earthy hop component. The hops work surprisingly well, and make for a really tasty interplay of malt and hops.

T- A nice, bready, caramel and cracker malt bill. Big lager yeast presence, and some mild dark fruit. Closes with some earthy hops that come off almost minty. Lightly bitter on the finish.

M- pretty thick, certainly feels like a doppel. A creamy character that I find on a lot of Stoudt's brews.

O- Looks fantastic, mouthfeel is pretty great as well. Smell Falls a bit short, and I could use a bigger hop presence, but it's pretty darn tasty.
