A - Served on tap, poured into a standard pint glass. Nice pinkish-creamish colored head fades into the beautiful crimson beer. Head sticks around for a while, and leaves thick lacing all over the glass.
S - Has a nice bready, malty aroma. Picking up some dark fruit and chocolate as well, but absolutely no scent of the high ABV whatsoever.
T - Each sip of this beer is like biting into a succulent steak; every single morsel of it must be enjoyed. Not a beer you want to drink quickly, or you'll miss the wonderful flavors it has. Chocolate, figs, raisins, caramel, prunes and some other fruits all there, but the alcohol is nowhere to be found. Very deceptive, but incredibly delicious.
M - A thick and chewy beer. Very heavy mouthfeel, but that's a good thing. Sticky texture that clings all over the mouth, but goes down smoothly.
O - Honestly, this beer is in my top 5 as far as my personal favorites go, so reviewing it was a breeze. It's a delicious beer, and THE prime example of how a double bock should taste. It has a fairly high ABV as far as beers go, but you would never be able to guess it by drinking it alone, and that's the beauty of it. I'd more closely compare this to a fine wine than a beer, and it should be enjoyed like the thing of beauty it is.

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.
