Review taken from notes Spring 2012. I've been wanting to put this into my BA log for a while now. Finally getting around to it.

12 oz brown bottle with 2 guitarists shredding some sort of rock riff on a live stage. I've played guitar for probably 15 years and this label appeals to me. Poured into a standard 12 oz tall like mug.

A - deep amber reddish brown. Chestnut looking color. Head isn't large at all but did last longer than I expected and formed a tight ring of lace leaving a touch of stick here and there.

S - malt.. Malt.. And more malts. Sweet aromas of cinnamon bread and dark fruits. A real breadiness to it. Sweet malts galore. Delicious aroma.

T - a really good malt flavored brew here. Lots of sweet malt, bread, hints of cinnamon spice, an abundance of more dark malts paired with some dark fruit. Plum, raison, sweet prunes, and a dark cherry. Sweet liquid bread with a lot going on.

M - rich mouthfeel but surprisingly thicker than what I expected going in. GLBC always have good texture but I was worried that their thinner liquid style may not line up for a doopelrock and while its not as thick as some it still has excellent coating and texture. Very drinkable without being too rich.

O - the closest American made doppelbock to the original German versions I've ever had. I didn't see this brew in 2013, and I hope it's not completely gone. Very underrated and under appreciated doppelbock. GLBC make a lot of great ales, but I don't think any American brewery does lagers like they do. Lagers are forgotten in today's beer universe, but I'm telling you right now, this as is all GLBC lagers some of the best on the planet. If this is released again grab it and try it. It's a top notch doppelbock.
