This one poured with little head but I didn't give it quite a rigourous pour. The color is an amber brown, very similar to Chimay Red.
The nose is very strong and you can pick up on the hops, fruit notes (apples and raisons) as well has the the great yeast that goes into this brew. I had never had a doppelbock and I don't think this one was the best place to start beings as it was dominated by its yeast. Still, this is a great beer. A ton of complexity here, and also a very smooth brew. I compared it to Rare Vos (Ommegang) to my friends but pointed out that it managaes to be even more drinkable and smooth even with its greater alcohol content. Great beer!

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%

Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).
Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.
A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
