RE-REVIEW! 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a three finger cream shade with a fluffy yet thickly-bubbled texture appropriate for a lager. Too bad it doesn't have great retention. Still, there's something to be said about the lacing it leaves behind.

S: Intensely fruity, this beer brings a ton of cherries, raisins, and figs. Letting it sit will allow its malt backbone to come out of hiding. This gives it a strong molasses tone, while brown sugar and caramel lie behind it. This is a really nice aroma, especially for a style I'm not a huge fan of.

T: I said the nose was intensely fruity - and so is the flavor profile. It's unbelievable how cherry-forward this tastes. The lager yeast blends beautifully with the fruit flavors, also. This one is layered so that more of the brown sugar and caramel notes come out around, say, a 1/3rd of the bottle. It's not as nuanced or delicate as, say, Celebrator. Instead, it takes the classically 'Murican approach of "MOAR = BETTER!" and makes it work with aplomb. About the only thing it could use is more depth.

M: Really crisp and clean much in the way a lager should be. Except it's over 8%, and doesn't feel like it. Some sweetness does linger on the palate, but hardly enough to choke the palate down. A full bodied, mildly-carbonated brew shouldn't be this drinkable...

O: For my money, still the best 'Murican-made doppelbock on the market. There are many occasions, in fact, where I'd even drink this over Celebrator. This is such a great winter-time staple, I really wonder why I haven't made it happen (that is, stock it regularly) for real.
