4.25/5 rDev +2.4%
A Pours a nutty tinted dark brown that reminds me a of the color of a nice starbucks bres. A 1.5 finger dark golden head and some substanbtial lacing. The head did not remain
S A toasty malted aroma with hints of caramel and perhaps a fruit like a plum?
T Nice, toasty, rich, malty and a hint of a sweet fruit. There is a warm flavor that reminds me this is a strong beer, but it nice and smooth
M - Thick, rich with moderately low carbonation
O - I really like this beer. To me, it tastes like a really nice dopplebock and provides the strength, richness and malt that I might expect.

Dark mahogany brown in the Duvel tulip with plenty of foam. Nicely sudsy and tangy in the mouth. Not so much aroma but a fume of alcohol and spice.
Dark raisiny and molasses flavors. Rather sweet and fruity but with a grainy edge. I can safely say this is the biggest, fattest Doppelbock I've ever had. It's quite sippable, it's just so rich it's like dessert, a caramel custard. Really, really malty with dark roasted barley and browned sugar flavors. Some slight bitterness at the end.
From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego. Jan 14, 2013 brewing date according to the hang tag.

A- Dark coffee color, no transparency what so ever, two finger toffee color head mild lacing
S- sweet malts, sweet caramel, very slight toasted toffee, light cocoa.
T-Sweet toffee that fades to dark cocoa with lingering smokey finish.
M- light syrup finishing with a sticky resin feel
O- Bold bock beer that reminds me more of a porter. not like any traditional bock that I have had with its toffee and cocoa flavors. Would be a great cold fall day warmer.

So, my ratings may seem a bit odd. I love the color and the overall beer, it's damn fine. However, it's more like a porter than a doppelbock to me. Here's why...
Color is most definitely more towards the black side of brown. Nice off tan head, somewhat thick and gooey. Nice lacing. Ok, not a bad look for a db, albeit a bit dark.
Aroma is not as sweet as most dbs that I've tried. It's roasty and rich. Toasted dark bread, some prune and hints of raisin. Not all that dry, but it ain't sweet.
Clean flavors. Nothing out of sync. That porter thing is just begging for attention. Roasted malt, baked dark chocolate, some leather and hints of green pine or grass. While not a dry beer, I doubt this would make waves in Germany. Irish might love it. The plum and raisin just don't overcome the roasts.
Which is not a bad thing. This a very nice beer, pair it with anything grilled and with tangy BBQ sauce. Still, for the style I think it misses.

Double Vision pours a black color, with a small lacing head. Their is a strange sour aroma, on a crisp malty backbone. The taste was a bit boozy, had a slight sourness to it, and was rather grainy. Full flavors. Overall an interesting beer that wasn't bad, just not sure if it was for me.
