Full white to off white head settles down to a thinning lacing above a clear amber red colored beer.

Sweet dark fruity and sweet caramel grain malts aroma.

Full sweet taste of caramel malts and sort of dark fruits, almost like candied cherries.

A lighter body feel than I had thought it would be with the rich sweet aroma, but very pleasant just the same. A sweet lingering taste to the very slightly dry aftertaste.

One of the sweetest beers I've had so far, and if you like sweet beers you should definitely seek one of these out.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: reddish brown, real clear.... dense foam, wells up high on pour, slow fade, lasting collar.... not much lace, if any

S: baked cherries and fresh dinner rolls - densely malty... floral-perfumy alcohol, this rounds out and eventually dominates the smell.... melanoidin rich

T: alcohol absent of heat, yet slight, quite mild sweet and warming sensation in the aftertaste/finish.... slight nutty-chocolate in the follow through, bread crust, leather/tobacco... pretty solid characteristic flavor but not unique or exhibiting depth

M: rich, malty body, but on the light side and real dry... i prefer my doppelbocks a touch chewy, but this is still serial (as in, drink many in a row)

O: pretty darn surprisingly good!... it would stand up fine against your random, no name German version.... better and truer than most American examples
