4.33/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured down the middle into a Guinness pint glass.

Clear dark brown with 2 finger thick, foamy, solid head. Settled to a thin coating after a couple minutes. A thin layer of foam remains until the end of the glass.

Smells of good, robust, dark bread. Yeast and prunes or raisins. My nose is slightly stuffy tonight so I might not detect the subtleties.

Taste has a complex blend of sweet dark fruits and heavy, dark bread up front. Slight hops on the back end. Carbonation really enhances the finish. 8.2% alcohol is not noticeable, a sign of a well balanced beer. Delicious aftertaste. Flavor of bread lasts a long time.

Smooth, medium body with lots of sparkle from the bubbles. Flavors involve the whole tongue. Feel and flavor last a long time. Great beer to enjoy slowly.

Delicious, complex, smooth, drinkable beer. Begs for a leather couch in a dark wood lined room in front of a toasty fireplace on a winters evening. Excellent of you like a less bitter, hoppy brew.

3.78/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

3.85/5  rDev -2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of malt
Head small (2 cm), light brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 1 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing none
Body dark red-amber, clear
Flavor begins heavily sweet and lightly roasted malty, ends sweet, perhaps a hint of yeast esters; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation

This is a very nice doppelbock, not cloyingly sweet and hiding the alcohol and hops well.
The fizzy head and no lacing detract from the appearance.
