4.49/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Deep amber brown body. Excellent clarity. Pours large creamy head that quickly dissipates. Almost no lacing.

S - Strong malts with melanoidins present. Slight toasty note. A hop presence is detectable (Noble?). No fruity esters, chocolate, or 'burned' aroma.

T - Sweet malt presence with toasty flavor. Ever slight presence of chocolate. Slight pale finish is hidden by toasty notes. Alcohol flavor minimal with dry finish.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation. Low astringency.

O - Strong, rich, sweet lager. A very textbook example of a German Doppelbock.

---

NOTES: Paid around $4.20 for this half-liter bottle with flip top - a solid value in my opinion if you are looking for an excellent German Doppelbock.

3.85/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: Dark amber color. Kind of murky looking. Leaves a small white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Smells of dark fruits, raisins, some caramel, and malts.

T: Tastes pretty much just like it smells. Nicely balanced, has a little bit of hoppiness to it as well.

M: Medium-bodied, kind of creamy as well. Good amount of carbonation.

O: Good doppelbock, although there isn't really anything in this beer that "wows" me. Tastes kind of like Raisin Bran, which isn't a bad thing. Awesome bottle art, too.

3.78/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Deep copper color and the medium-tall, beige head is very compact but bit light. Dissipates slowly into decent lacings.

S: Rich sweet, dark malt. Dark dried fruits, some bitter hops. Very bready, almost like Swedish rye crisp-bread. Some faint citric notes.

T: Syrupy sweet, very sweet. Lots of dark dried fruits, raisins and plums. Faint bitter hops in the back, but this is very sweet.

M: Smooth and thick, creamy body with low dissipation and a sweet, but short aftertaste.

O: Nice Doppelbock, perhaps a bit too sweet (!?!?) if that even is possible when it comes to Doppelbocks.
