4.15/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

This beer pours an amber/ruby semi-clear like an herbal tea color. Nice ivory head. The aroma is mild and hidden but suggests malts, syrup, and bread. Undertones of Hops show up more and more as (both in the smell and in the taste) the beer warms and the glass empties. The taste is one of heavy malts, caramel/syrup, and dark fruits. Yet it is not too sweet, there is a nice amount of bitter hops to balance things out. As the beer warms though; the malty upfront stays pleasant but the aftertaste becomes slightly more bitter (not awful though). I’d suggest drinking this while its still mostly cold. The mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing; light/medium with just a hint of ‘chewability’ (maybe because of the sweet sticky flavor). While this is maybe not the MOST intriguing unique out of this world beer I have ever had; it IS extremely drinkable! Most of the beers I have rated I’ve suggested that they be slowly enjoyed. This however, is better cold, goes down very easily with little distractions and does not sit heavily in your stomach. It is not quite as malty sweet as some other Doublebocks but it is very drinkable and it can also be enjoyed by all your macro-brew drinking friends. This is the beer I’d suggest to a BA who wants a better beer for a party. As an added bonus the 8.2% ABV will sneak up on your unsuspecting friends and make for a VERY interesting party. This is a drink all night beer. PARTY ON!
Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

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.
