Presentation: Bottled for the 8th Annual Great Northeast International Beer Fest. 12oz brown.

Appearance: An outrageous looking beer! Even held up to the light this beer is near black with trace brown hues on the edges. Head is like a dollop of tan-coloured cream -- it sticks and stays.

Smell: Aroma has a faint note of oxidation, but it's no problem and expected given the aging I did. Rather clean overall with milky/caramel aroma in the background.

Taste: Smooth. Oh, so damn smooth. Luscious even. The palate creams up on contact, then goes silky smooth and coats the everything with a full-bodied and rich dose of maturity by way of an even malt profile of caramel, chocolate, strong coffee and a near milky character that brings it all together. Sweetness is subdued. Thin astringency. Mild sherri notes. Alcohol is cleanly hidden. No real hops bitterness is perceived, but rather felt with a raw scratch on the tongue now and then. Finish is amazingly clean, with trace malt residuals.

Notes: By far on of the top Doppelbock's to have graced my always learning palate. This sample was probably bottled for competition back in 10/2001, then it fell into my hands. In the meantime it's had time to evolve quite nicely into an absolute nectar of the gods in my 2nd beer fridge. Thanks to David & Cindy Wollner, the owners of Willimantic Brewing Co. for creating such a treat.
