Poured from the bottle into a Boulevard Tulip.
After fighting through the cork like it was a Victorian era skirt I unveiled the succulent details hidden inside the Seeyoulator Dopplebock bottle from Boulevard's newest addition to the Smokestack Series. Seeyoulator pours excellently, almost picturesque, into the glass. I commented to my roommate that the pour would be something you see in a commercial, it was that good. He then joked that it wasn't triple-hopped brewed and we made several jokes that killed us a little on the inside. The head came to about a full hand size and it gently laced the glass as I continued to drink. Unlike those rough lacing beers, jeez I hate those... If you hold Seeyoulator up to the light it shines a beautiful reddish hue and in normal light it's a brownish color that's very reminiscent of any other dopplebock. The smell is actually one of the weakest categories of this beer. It's good and has a bit of bite, but it's too faint. I feel like I have to inhale from the back of my head to get a whiff of this beer, it's a little annoying. However that does not deter from the taste. The taste is like L.A. Confidential, brilliantly executed, well acted and moderately complex. I would say more but I love that analogy to much. If you live in K.C. and you like Boulevard or Dopplebock's, try this freaking beer! I really really mean it. If you live outside K.C. and can't get this and want to trade hit me up. Dopplebock's I find are a very easily accessible and drinkable beer, one of my favorite styles and Boulevards inclusion with the cedar barrels I find impressive.

It pours a dark chestnut brown. It's very opaque with an inviting, rich look. The head is initially a finger thick and look nice on top of the much darker beer, but there's little retention and before long it's gone. After a quick swirl, slight lacing presents.
The smell is very welcoming. Very malty, caramelly, with some spices and a hint of smoke.
For the style, the taste is right up there. The caramel malts take top billing, but the spice, smoke and high alcohol are very worthy supporting members and make for a nice flavor profile.
A full-bodied beer with burst of sweet and complimentary hits of various spices and some char from the cedar. No real hop presence and little to no bitterness. The spice and smokey feel balance the malty sweetness and everything is cleaned up at the end with the heat from the alcohol.
I don't care much for lagers or German malt bombs, but this was a damned good beer. It's got a lagery taste and feel but everything is spot on with sharp edges like an ale. Good stuff, great flavor and the perfect amount of alcohol. Makes for a good night sipper.

Thanks to dresden for this bottle.
Batch 2010-1 05/2011.
A - Very dark amber colour with a deep brown centre; only very slightly translucent. Two fingers of light, bubbly tan coloured head.
S - Dark caramel, brown sugar, yeast esters and a hint of cocoa.
T - Bready malts, dark caramel, brown sugar and some toffee notes combined to for a fairly sweet malt-forward base. A light cedar presence shows up in the finish but is otherwise secondary. Slightly warming ABV helps cut through the sweetness. A great flavour profile but I would have likes a little more of the cedar coming through.
M - Medium body. Creamy. Light to moderate carbonation.
