look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle poured into 16oz snifter; bottled late November 2010 so I'm assuming that I'm drinking this within the boundaries of freshness.
A: Pours a dark brown, crimson under light. One finger of white head which subsides quickly without leaving much lacing behind.
S: Quite sweet, but fruity and pleasant. Lots of bread aromas are present; a strong malty backbone accented by raisins and plums. Very bready for the style, but wholly enjoyable.
T: Once again, very bready, sweet, and fruity. I'm really enjoying the taste in comparison to the other doppelbocks I've had; even though there's very little bitterness to be found, the sweet and bready flavors balance one another very well and are quite enjoyable. One of the few beers I've had with raisin flavors that doesn't overdo it and remains quite enjoyable throughout.
M: Thin-medium body with moderate carbonation, which leads to a somewhat creamy body when swirled around. Slightly dry, jarring, sweet finish. Just a tad syrupy.
D: Extremely drinkable for the style; this is by far the easiest-drinking (not to mention best) doppelbock I've had. I cannot BELIEVE this is an 8.20% ABV beer considering the light body and complete masking of the alcohol in flavor and scent. I've had it before and I'll have it again. Highly recommended if you have a chance to pick it up or trade for it.

Pours a decent beige head that quickly fades to a thin remnant. Brew is a brilliant copper-caramel color, dark but very clear.
Tons of toffee and caramel in the aroma, plus dark fruits: figs and grapes.
Flavor follows the nose: sweet raisins and grapes, chewy bready malts, tons of caramel and brown sugar. A bit of rum raisin meets fruitcake.
Long, long sticky finish from a light but creamy body. Extremely easy drinking, with no hint of the high ABV, and little sting.
Very tasty dopplebock.
