When poured, Arcolator didn't really produce a vast amount of head. What was produced from a half liter bottle was about a finger and a half thick, and stuck together quite nicely. The body is nearly black, but showcases ruby red highlights with a little light.

Aromas given off are of chocolate malt character, and a slight herbal fragrance. There is also the typical cola like smell here too.

The taste is sweet and almost cocoa like at first, and gives way to a bitter semi sweet finish.

Though this is a bit on the full bodied side, it's actually quite smooth and not overly carbonated. A warming alcohol comes through in the end.

This is the first beer I've ever had from this brewery, and I hope to sample some more based on this decent example of Doppelbock.
