look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

It pours a very dark gold/brown with a 1 finger of white foam. Another brew with fine lacing.

I have to say that the smell is awesome. Lots of caramel malt with a wee bit of grain, maybe a hint or two of chocolate.

The very same taste wise. A bit of a stronger grain presence but not out of line for the style at all.

Smooth mouth feel, almost at the top of the food chain as far as Doppelbocks that I have tried. Just as good as Celebrator, imho

12/19/13 From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. This had a malty dryness that I found intriguing. With the slight caramel linger it all added up to something worthwhile. Not sure it rates as a go to session beer (& the 7.5% ABV puts the kabosh on that) but this is one of those beers one would like to have at hand as a singular change of pace.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear ruby copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of raisin, plum, apple, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toast, brown bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of raisin, plum, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, toffee, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of raisin, plum, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, toffee, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with solid robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good doppelbock style. Good balance and complexity of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Such a wonderful beer for the price. only bought singles but maybe this could age a year or two. While winter increases its grip, so the heavy lagers mitigate. A tad tarter and a tad more assertive, this is a bock for almost all occasions. Tons of flavor with all the drinkability you'd want, the Winter-Bock is a really good beer.
