This is clearly in the Sam Adams class of d-bocks. I propose that an ADB category be created!
Pours heavy, clear brown--a couple of ticks lighter than Salvator, if I recall that one properly. Deep alcohol nose, and hot, heavy, nutty, grainy, dextrine body. Foretaste just vanishes and swims around to the mid-after arena, where it does a big malt-hops-yeast trampoline bounce on the crest of the tongue. Only a lip-locked, glottal pumping through the nose can separate the threads in the taste tapestry. Grain aromas linger strongly in the glass. Mild, tart coat remains on the tongue.
Not the Moravian malt, triple-decocted, melanoidin-infused, deep-lagered doppel I've come to love.......but still a pretty righteous brew.

Appearence: clear brown, thick off shore head with nice retention.
Smell: refined yeast, a bit of sweetness. Not unpleasant but lacking.
Taste: some deep malt notes and a bit of hops and hints of fruit but the taste was heavily overpowered by alchohal.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, full body, not dry. Very filling.
Overall: for me the flavors were lacking, do that the most discernable tadte was alchohal, which isnt too pleasant, I cant see myself buying this again and I had higher hopes from this brewery.
Serving type: can
