500ml bottle was poured into a large tulip.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger off white head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark amber mahogany color with vision of slow moving bubbles when held up to light.
Smell: Fruity, caramel, toffee, bready, banana, and raisin.
Taste: Raisins, bananas, toffee, caramel, wheat, toasted malts, grassy hops, a little bitter chocolate, and a little bitternes in the end.
Mouthfeel: Super smooth, a little chewy, full bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Wow. This doppelbock is the bomb. At less than $4 a bottle, revisiting this beer again is going to be easy.

4.05/5 rDev -6%
L - creamy beige head holds good retention atop a bronzed brown body
S - fainter aroma of earthy hops, caramel, grain, and toffee
T - rich and sweet, toffee, caramel, grain, earthy spicy hops, slightly peppery on the finish
F - fullish body, creamy and smooth, finishes clean
O - a bit of a surprise here. I was expecting better. It's still really good, but I was hoping for a little bit more from the #2 ranked doppelbock in the world.

500ml bottle poured into a mug...
A - Brownish/ruby red appearance with a one finger head. Decent lace retention on the glass
S - Nothing discernible for me. Some light malts and a little caramel possibly, a little bit of a letdown
T - WOW! An absolute stud. Malts, toffee, caramel, cocoa, milk chocolate. They all meld together perfectly. Pretty complex and unlike anything I have tasted. This is so different and so good!
M - Medium to full body feel, mild carbonation that rolls off the palate pretty smooth
O - Most importantly the taste takes the cake here. It totally raises the stock for me in this one. So unique and savoring. Although the other attributes aren't quite there, the taste of this beer is truly world class.

On draft- 30 cL weizen glass
A: hazy brown, minimal lacing. Small head. Beautiful color though in the right light.
S: nothing too strong here. Some boozy aromas. Light malt smell
T: fantastic. Boozy notes up front with standard raisin taste of beers in this style but then finished with incredibly complex flavors. Like a cocoa. Wonderful lingering aftertaste. Lasts for a very long time.
M: amazing. The alcohol up front just tingles the palate but then you get the perfect carbonation and aforementioned lingering taste.
O: An amazing example of how good dark German beers can be. If you live boozy dark Belgians try something like this and you'll be amazed
