4.3/5  rDev +15.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Had this on-tap at Brauhaus

A - Very rich ruby brown body, dark and inviting. Small cream head atop this solid mug of beer.

S - Roasty sweet malts and dark sugars are in the nose. This beer smells rich and malty sweet. Some dark dried fruits and dark sugar/molasses are present.

T - This beer tastes much like it smells. The flavor is very rich and complex. Delicious darkness of malt, brown sugar, mollasses, dark caramel, dried dark fruits like figs and prunes.

M - Like most malty beers this has a very smooth mouthfeel. It's rich and full of flavor but free of a heavy syruppy body. Perfectly carbonated.

D - I really love dark beers, malty beers, double bocks etc so I can down this style. But for anyone, this beer is easy to drink, its just so smooth and soft and the taste alone will have it sliding down.

Notes - I passed over this one for a long while at my favorite spot and am completely regretfull I did. I really like this beer alot and suggest it to anyone.

3.76/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

3.21/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

Light tan head that fades away fast. Color is a murky caramel hued brown.

Flavors of dark fruits, molasses, raisins, caramel, and chocolate. A lot of malts. Some grassy hops. Bready. A bit of toffee.

Mouthfeel: Fairly dry. A decent amount of carbonation. Medium to full bodied.

Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this one. It has a bit of a roasted flavor in the finish and it ended kind of dry. Good flavors, just bad mouthfeel/finish.
