A: This poured a clear black ruby with moderate tan head.
S: It smelled like earthy roasted barley and cola, with some honey wheat bread and molasses.
T: It tasted like roasted barley and honey wheat, with some cola and molasses and oaky toasted coconut. It had a somewhat clean and sweet aftertaste.
M: It was oily with a little carbonation. Full slick body.
D: This was a decent doppelbock, but it didn't show much barrel character. The scent and taste were a bit muddy, but the body was nice and the alcohol was well hidden. So it wasn't difficult to drink. Probably not for aging. Meh.

16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Very dark brown body with a smallish, light beige head.

Smell: Malty and sweet-scented with firm notes of roasted malt, hot chocolate mix, and sugary caramel-flavored candy. Some skins-on dark fruitiness. I'm coming up empty on the planks, just a whole lot of maltiness.

Taste: Cocoa, heavy caramel, and Tootsie Rolls glazed with instant coffee. Moderate sweetness. Dark fruits. Subtle wood character, I'd hoped for a better showcasing of the woods. Slight spiciness, a faint flutter of earthines

Dark brown, with a great chocolate, milkshake head. A skim ring of foam stays with the beer. Good milkshake

Very faint raisin/dark dried fruit in the nose.

Dark cherry, raisin, dates, malty flavors, vanilla, and slight booze. Well done and nicely balanced.

Full bodied, light carboation.

A very nice beer and worth a taste, I prefer this one on draft.

Pours deep brown with no real head. A skim ring of foam stays with the beer. Some ruby hues when held to the light.

Dark fruit, cherry woody notes in the nose. A touch mild here, but that is being picky.

Rich malt flavors with dark fruit, some beer soaked wood, over-ripe cherry, prune, vanilla, and a little booze. Flavors stay with you and yet the sweetness dries out to mild bitter at the end with a light bitter and fruit mix. Nice.

Full bodied, but a little swishy. Some light carbonation on the tongue. Wanted a bit more chew here.

Nice domestic doppel. Nice flavors and overall balance. Worth a try.
