Leinie's has dared to dealve into the Doppelbock category. Some pretty tough competition here. The German Doppelbocks are still the benchmark.

That being said, it pours nicely. A good head that lasts a little while and settles to a lace. Very dark; little light passes through. I would call it very dark brown with a little cherry or burgandy color.

The smell was bland but a hint of toasted barley(malt). It did not smell bad at all.

The taste comes off as a hint off coffee and mostly roasted malt. Hops are not prominent but noticed after.

I would say the beer is watered down compared to the Germans. But the mouth feel is not dry and rather velvetty. Does not appear to have a high alcohol content. Most Leinenkugel varieties hover around 5%.

Overall, drinkable and fresh tasting. Not up to world class standards.
