Enjoyed this 22 oz bomber bottle out of a large snifter glass.
A: Pours a dark brown hue with a tan 2-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves a wispy lace with a slight trail down the glass.
S: Strong sweet malty caramel aroma with dark fruit in the background and an alcoholic twinge.
T: Dark rich ale with a generous malt caramel sweetness. Mild chocolate overtones, with a slight wood flavor.
M: Pretty strong and boozy. Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: Excellent doppelbock - great aromas and flavors.

Picked up a bomber of this at the recommendation of my good friend Passow (iamaguitargod) when I went to bother him yesterday at his new place of employment The Wine Spot on Lee RD. in Cleveland HTS. Poured into one of my mugs, this beer pours a deep amber brown color with ruby highlights. The slightly tan colored head is about an inch thick when poured, before quickly settling to a nice thick ring lining the inside of the glass with a little bit of foam dotting the surface of the beer. Not much lacing here. Aromas of toasted caramel malt, a bit of clove, and certainly some woody notes. The flavor is a nice mixture of bready, caramel malt sweetness along with clove, dark fruit such as raisins, and is rounded out with the eucalyptus woodyness. Has an overall smooth, very dry, almost sticky, medium bodied mouthfeel. Coats the inside of your mouth. Light to moderate carbonation. The flavors do seem to dissipate too quickly for my taste, which I thought was odd too because of the sticky coating this beer left on the inside of my mouth. Good and drinkable in the way well crafted beer should be. Certainly an interesting offering with some unique characteristics I don't think I've experienced in many, if any of the other hundreds if not thousands of different beers I have drank. Certainly worth a try if you come across it, but there is certainly room for improvement with this one too.
