Deep amber color, sorta brown, translucent when held up to the light. Not much head to speak of, just a white ring around the cap. Smells like caramel and honey, with just the faintest touch of smoke. Not a very strong nose, but pleasant and sweet. Bready as well. Taste is very sweet, honey on wheat bread, with just a hint of smokey caramel. Surprisingly thick body, with a little bit of lively carbonation. Think springtime syrup!

Pretty impressed with this beer. Not a top ten, but very interesting and enjoyable.

Rahr creates a doppelbock with a texas twist. Sweet smellin' smoky tastin' and smooth finishin'...

I prefer this doppelbock to other's I've tried because it is not sweet or fruity. it is complex and leans toward a porter in the look and mouthfeel.

A Friday night and a bomber of malty beer? Yes please. Purchased at H E B it has a nice dark brown color with coffee head that quick falls. The smell is thick malt with hints of smoke. The taste is rich creamy syrupy goodness. Almost no hop flavor but slight bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is spot on. Overall great beer

Poured from 22 oz bottle into mug with a relatively strong pour. Amber-brown translucent color, very clear with a nice tan head that quickly leaves with no lacing.

Not much in the nose, as expected from a later, but some malty presence. Flavor is much more robust with rich malts, and some breadiness. Very enjoyable with an appropriate but slightly thin body.

Overall a great beer from Rahr.
