A - Deep amber/brown color with half a finger of tan head with a fairly aggressive pour. A bit of rising carbonation is visible but not too much. This beer is fairly dark, can't see through it too well.
S - A mixture of sweet caramel malts and standard german lager yeast smells. Slight hints of dark fruits such as figs and cherries.
T - American influence fades here, mostly dark fruits and lager yeasts at this point. Apple, fig, cherry, caramel, and a general earthiness.
M - Medium to heavy body. Light carbonation, slightly sticky, still generally slick mouthfeel with a sweet caramel finish.
O - Seems like a good Americanized version if this style of beer. Definitely doesn't seem to be strictly to style, but adds a nice balance.

This is a good one. If the color was a leather, you would call it oxblood. Lovely but quickly dissipating sepia head. Lacing is light, but consistent and appetizing. Smells like so many good things, I'm gonna go with...banana bread with a smear of Nutella? The taste is a similar miasma, grain notes dancing with that banana ester going on, some faint spicy hops, and a little bit of alcohol on the back (it is 8.2%, after all). Mouthfeel isn't syrupy as you would think, and makes this fairly heavy beer extremely drinkable. This is a beautiful, all-season beer. Highly recommended.

A-Pours a copperish red with a good amount of slightly tan creamy head that fades leaving a very thin layer on the surface of the beer.
S-Sweet aromas of caramel and toffee with a hint of vanilla. There's just the faintest hint of rasted malt.
T-Starts with a moderately alcoholic sweetness, flavors of caramel with more prominent roasted malt than the aroma indicates.
M-Starts sweet but finishes slightly dry. Slightly sticky with good carbonation. There's also a good amount of alcoholic warmth.
Overall, a very good dopplebock, good representation of the style. I love the sweet flavors in combination with the roasted malt. Very good beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pokal, the beer is a vibrant, clear, dark ruby-blood red coloring with a nice, light, inch and a half biege colored head. The head quickly settles into an eighth of an inch. Rich aromas, with a strong old world fruit presence of date, raisin, and fig, with a malty backbone. Flavors are dark and sweet, with the raisin, fig, and date present again, as well as a light roasting and toasty feel, and a slight boozey highlight. The aftertaste is slightly cloying, with an oily slick finish. Strong flavors, and a tasty brew.
