Pours a red, copper and dark amber color with a creamy lace.
Aroma consists of sweet malts, dark bread, biscuity, dark fruits, dark bread, chocolate, caramel and maple. Slightly metallic is the only drawback. Otherwise, there is a lot going on and thus it's best attribute.
Sweet dark bready malt and finish, dark fruit and modest hops in the taste.
Strong carbonation and medium bodied. A solid if unspectacular doppelback.

I give this a B grade across the board. I found it to have a solid feel and finish, good lacing, nice malt, and not too much sweetness. I think this is definitely a good, solid beer.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Pours with two finger's worth of thick, off-white foam that refuses to die. Dark amber/red in color. Plethora of bubbles. Moderate lacing. This is one of the most beautiful beers I have ever seen. {:'-D Has mild aromas of figs, smoke, and sour yeast with a hint of alcohol (sounds terrible, but it's a mediocre smell at worst). Initial taste is of mild smoke flavors immediately followed by slightly stronger fig and cherry flavors that overtake and cancel out the smokey flavors. Mild caramel malt flavors along with a hint of alcohol enter behind the fig and cherry flavors as the latter persist in their taste strength (I'm glad that the yeast aromas detected by my nose weren't detected as flavors by my tongue as that would of been chaos). Full bodied, amazingly creamy, mild carbonation with a disappointing dry finish. I am tempted to say that this was an amazing doppelbock, but that's just because the beer looked so sexy in that glass. Truth is, it was just a good beer, nothing amazing.
