GLASS: Pint Glass
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees
Dark amber color with ruby highlights. Nice two-finger head of foam with good retention and decent lacing.
Nice toasted malt nose. Slight hint of chocolate. Not much else to pick-up on.
Coffee flavor with a slight hint of chocolate. Small amount of sweet toasty malt flavor. Roasted nuts. Minimal dark fruit notes.
Like the flavor, the mouthfeel is abit weak and lifeless.
As far as an easy-drinking beer, this one qualifies. As far as being a dopplebock, it falls short.

A substantial black pour yielding almost no head, so there wasn't much in terms of lacing or retention to speak about, but the color and consistency save the rating from falling into a negative connotation.
Aroma is usual for a doppelbock: all over the place, some harsh bitterness, vanilla, prune/plum dark fruit hints, alcohol seemingly higher than the label would indicate.
Taste, tobacco?, alcohol, bitter soy sauce, just not super enjoyable for me. Where's the sweetness, this is amazingly bitter and somewhat harsh given the alcohol and lack of hops. Where did said bitterness come from? Maybe some anise/licorice, something going on here just doesn't pan out well.
Had this first back in law school, kinda funny, a friend with a much bigger rack than butt talked this beer up. Actually she had a nice butt (ah drinking romps), wondered why she never flaunted that as much as the huge chest. Oh well, I'd say avoid this beer if you're a big doppelbock fan, but the label is pretty cool.
