Nice head to start, but quickly dissipates. Dark, Sweet, reminiscent of a fine Belgian abbey ale, but this is german all the way. Big flavors of raisins, caramel, and black strap molasses. As a doppelbock, it's got the appearance of a porter but the mouthfeel of a much lighter beer. The sweetness creates a slight syrupy quality.

Clear brown colored beer with next to no head formation.

Smells sweet. Scents of malt nuts and grass. Fair scent of molasses. Smells fairly woody and has a strong tea aroma.

Starts out sweet with a taste of tobacco. Medium level of bitterness and some nuts, it has a very clean finish for the style.

Mouthfeel is good.

Tasty and user friendly Bock beer this is worth a taste.

This was a hazy chestnut brown, it poured with a small off-white head. It smells of molasdes, raisins, sweet bread, and some roasty cocoa. I kinda get some boozy fruitcake.

This doesn't quite deliver what the smell promises. Sweet fruitcake up front a drier, roasty cocoa finish that is a bit chalky. Silky smooth body.

Pretty good doppelbock, not one I'd revisit though.
