4.23/5  rDev +9%

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Label is numbered 0433. Intriguing artwork on the front.

A: Hazy, orange-red body. 1+ finger of off-white head with good retention. Light lacing.

S: Spicy, slightly musty Belgian-type yeast. Light fruity notes with touches of peach, pear. Bread, biscuit. Honey. Candi sugar.

T: Fruity malt and toasted notes initially. A moderate hop bitterness develops for balance. Finds its way nicely to a surprisingly dry finish. Some lingering nuttiness & light bread in the aftertaste. Alcohol presence is soft for 9% ABV.

M: Moderate carbonation with a moderate body. Smooth and rich - accentuates the malt qualities in this brew.

O: I read "lager" on the front and "doppelbock strength" on the back. There's definitely some Belgian yeast-fueled fruit as well. It's a well balanced, tasty hybrid that makes for a Silver Anniversary beer worth celebrating.

Prost!

A: HUGE head on this beer. 3+ fingers, off-white and leaves behind lots of lacing. The beer itself is copper and surprisingly clear.

S: Bready malts, quite a lot of orange peel, raisins, and a hefty amount of alcohol to round it all out. The aroma is quite powerful, you can smell it as soon as the bottle is opened.

T: After the aggressive aroma, the beer itself if a bit of a letdown. The flavor brings biscuity malts, alcoholic esters, and actually a lot more hops that I was expecting. It drinks surprisingly easy, and seems to get better with each sip.

M: medium body, slightly chewy, with a lot of carbonation.

O: I wish i would have bought another one of these to lay it down for a while. The beer is good, but I feel like it needs to finish rounding out and developing flavors. that being said, the flavor is good, and it goes down easy.

Poured a wonderful honey hued elixer that had quit the the fluffy off white head that stuck leaving deep sheets of lacing.

A huge medley of nice sweet malt and earthy minty hay like grand noble hops. A nice spicy noble hop aroma finishes with a caramel and cream finish.

So soft noble hop flavors with a creamy maltiness, caramel and earthy spicy flavor that finishes so so so so smooth and balanced caramel and earthy spicy hop flavors.

Amazingly juicey and dry, I am lost.

SO GLAD I GOT A BOT OF THIS! Wonderful stuff to behold!!!!

smoke pop off the cork. light, airy bubbles comprise the opaque colored foam, settling to form a tight layer on top. darker apricot color body with carbonation bubbles rising from the floor of the snifter. smell is sweet, with grapes. champagne? taste is smooth, slight hop bitter but not close to being prevailing. sweet, a little syrup-y. some toffee. I love the dopplebock but this one is a little different. light in the mouth, kind of airy. still, not a bad brew.
