This brew pours a very dark amber color with a thin mocha head and minimal lacing.

The smell is complex; it hits the drinker with scents of brown sugar, carmel, malt, and various fruits.

Mouthfeel is slightly chewy with the malts and spices lingering on the tongue.

The taste is complex first malts then various fruits, brown sugar, carmel and possibly licorice. No alchohol taste. This beer is very sweet. There seems to be a touch of hop oil on the backend. The brew also leaves a "dry" taste in the mouth after swallowing.

Overall, heavy malts, lots of sugar, very sweet complex fruit smell and taste.

A: Clear and Dark with a Reddish Amber hue. Very minimal cream head that dissipates quickly.

S: Dark fruits, malt, sweet, caramely

T: Follows smell. Sweet, but not too sweet. The dark fruit and malty flavors come up front. Almost tastes like a quad, but again, the sweetness is pleasant and mild. Alcohol is well hidden. No detectable hop presence.

M: Medium to Heavy mouthfeel with very little carbonation. Feels very filling when you drink it. Now I understand why the monks regarded this style as "liquid bread."

O: A very pleasant and flavorful brew to sip on. The thick mouthfeel makes it rather filling, but the abundance of dark fruit flavors is delicious.

Pours a deep, dark copper with little head that dissipates quickly. The nose is malty and bready. Sweet malt is dominant throughout with a sweet and slightly sour finish.

This offering is not quite a the best doppelbock I've had, but it is pretty darn close.

Paired very well with my rosemary flavored quesadilla.

A: clear dark plum-red and mahogany color, tan foamy head, nice carbonation, sticky lacing

S: caramel chocolate, malt, sweet dark fruits perhaps red grapes, slight hoppy aroma as well

T: nice chocolate flavor, dark fruits as well, caramel malt, slight hop in the background

M: light medium bodied, well carbonated, very smooth and creamy, nice amount of sweetness balanced with a very subtle bitterness, leaves a mildly sweet aftertaste

O: very good beer, all the flavors balance well and it is sweet but not overly so and the alcohol is very well hidden for 8.2%.

Another surprise from Hudak! Thanks man!

Poured to a mug the beer is a deep rich brownish red amber color with a cream colored hear about 1 finger width with good retention and lacing. The nose is that of biscuits and grain, hints of chocolate, toffee, and darker fruits. No detectable alcohol. The flavor expands on what was found in the nose: biscuity malt base from which the fruit builds: figs, raisins, prunes. Caramel and chocolate also in the mix. Hides the alcohol very well. Rich. Easy to drink. Mildly bitter. Finishes smooth and rich. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this was a treat. Good beer. Super approachable and easy to put down. Good stuff.

This beer pours smooth, but has a medium thick head that. Right fresh from the bottle it is very dark, and an amber bock. It is not very carbonated. Consistency wise it is pretty light, with a spicy, sweet, tangy taste right off the bat, followed by a chocolately taste after it goes down. After a while it tones down some, with a lighter malt coming out and is good beer to have with a nice meal.

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.
