3.75/5 rDev -13%
.5 L draft in a mug at Brauhaus Schmitz, Philadelphia
A- Deep brown amber, with a tan head. Doesn't retain.
S- String malt, caramelized sugar, caramel, a bit of iron.
T- A bit of roast. Sweet caramel, a little metallic.
M- Slightly viscous. Pretty light for a doppelbock, however. A bit of a bitter finish.
O- Decent. I'm not superbly impressed, but it has some really good caramelized characters.

Clear dark brown colored lager with a small tan colored head. I could almost call the color red.
Smells strongly malty. Aromas of prune and fig. Chocolate, caramel and faint grape scent.
Starts out malty with a big caramel taste. Mildly sweet and nutty, the point being it isn't too sweet. Flavors of fig and raisin with a slight rum flavor. Little bit of chocolate.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall a good Bock that isn't too sweet.

Poured on tap at Churckey into a tall highball footed glass.
A real nice gorgeous looking doppelbock. Deep ruby red with great tangerine orange edges on the sides that just shine like a gem. Head is one finger tall and super creamy, off tan with even sized bubbles in the formation. A real gorgeous looking beer here.
Nose is strangely subdued and muted. Soft grains and malt, not much heat, maybe a little bit of toffee. There's an interesting sort of kind of soft melted butter sense to this as well.
Palate improves quite a bit but unexpectedly. Soft toffee, not much caramel or large spice. Incredibly creamy vanilla palate with just a hint of light carbonation to make it fun. Silky finish with a thick coating and light sweetness.
Overall it's a great beer but I was hoping for more of a toffee/caramel angle that's just not here. Still going to have to go with Ayinger-Celebrator for the standard and one to beat, but this is no slouch.

Pours with a nice 1/2" light khaki head... the brew is dark brown with beautiful garnet highlights... good lacing.
Nose is dark toast... very malty... light caramel...
Flavor mirrors the nose... no chocolate like some darker versions (like Celebrator)... just pure malty goodness... something that I associate with dates with warmth, so does a grainy sweetness.
Very smooth body... the head is so creamy it almost feels like nitro.
Worthy of the hunt and the reputation.
4.5's across the board.

appearance: rich amber brown, hints of real red in there not much head but you can imagine why
smell: roasted malted barely stands out with a bit of alcohol in there some walnuts round it out
taste: what a rich walnut tanin taste, a bit over powering but I enjoy it. Almost a wintry brew
mouthfeel: haunts the roof of the mouth with a stratigicly placed biter at the end and those tannins
overall: A great dynamic brew this is one you have when you are looking to drink beer, not party not have drunken good times but really drink a brew. One thing pops into my head $2000 call girl, you spend some time enjoying that
