A - I'm getting almost zero light through my glass (although it is a rather wide snifter), but I've had it at the brewpub and know it is a dark mahogany red. Tan coloured head, small but persisent, doesn't leave a lot of lace.
S - rich bready malt, sweet plums, hazelnut
T - loads of munich malt, extremely malty, sweetness is not overdone and very plum-like, finish brings in more of the hazelnut.
M - Full bodied without being cloying, medium- light carbonation brings this beer alive, alcohol is completely hidden.
D - Another of my Bushwakker favourites, superbly executed, and dangerously drinkable.
First released as a seasonal in Dec 06, the recipe was tweaked and another batch was unleashed on the public in May 08 (which is what I am reviewing). Please make this beer more regularly!
Very impressive attempt at a Doppelbock. Extremely clean, and the alcohol is nowhere to be found; some of my friends ordered this up and raved about it, yet they hate "strong" beer. I've even made the mistake of drinking 2 pints of these in one sitting, and then tried to get up from the table! A tough beer to brew well, kudos to Mitch and Jamie!!!

Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists mainly of deep caramel and toffee malt. Taste is also a mix between some medium sweet caramel malt with notes of toffee. Full body with limited filtration and good carbonation with no discernable alcohol. I would have like more banana ester but still very well done and easily quaffable.
