this is one of those beers thats objectively very good, but just didnt appeal to me personally all that much. its a cool brew though, dark in color for the style, almost porter looking, deep brown, satin finish, with a nice nearly full inch of off white head, foamy and lasting. the lager yeast is readily apparent here, slightly warmer fermented it tastes like, but nice, and robust enough to ferment this one down pretty dry. some roast and char notes here, deeper in the malt that i am used to in a doppelbock, but still with plenty of the toffee and caramel richness in the center. the flavor definitely has a german vibe to it from the grain, and the barrel treatment is obvious as well, vanilla and char, sweet oak, its nice with the deeper base beer. something tastes a little funny to me though, like it picked up a little weird bacteria or something in the barrel, not tangy or sour yet, but like it might be starting to set in. for now, its sort of fruity, like a dried tart cherry note in here or something, just another layer, but i worry about its cellar capacity as a result. a little filling and hugely boozy too, but a cool beer from these guys, ambitious and different.

On tap at Tomlinson Taproom in Indianapolis. Pours a medium - dark amber with minimal head. Aroma consists primarily of sweet malt accented by notes of alcohol phenols. Taste is deceptively smooth and highly quaffable for nearly 10% ABV. Good amped up Americanized example of style. Would love to try the bourbon barrel versions as this example has many complementing traits that I think would be enhanced by the barrel aging process.

Not a big Doppelbock fan so I tried to be as fair as I could with respect to the style the brewery tried to create. The color was amberish with white head. Teh scent carried malt and alcohol. The taste was malty and sweet with some alcohol mixed in. The mouthfeel was ok, the high ABV makes it tough for me. Other probably would enjoy more than me.

Served in a snifter at Shoreline 5/27/08. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist (and the driving!).

A: Served an opaque chestnut color. Small sticky head.

S: Nice aromas of sweet chocolate, roasted malt, and brown sugar.

T: See above with a small hop bite and some caramel.

M: Thick, oily, coating, and very smooth. Slightly peppery.

D: Quite good! I will have this one again.

Poured into a ten ounce footed glass. Poured a light amber with a decent sized head and active bubbles. Nose was yeasty, smelled of a wet dough, grassy hops and an alcoholic kick back. The taste was strong on the alcohol, but also very mellow. The hops weren't spicy, the body continued with the doughy flavor and it went down with an alcohol burn. It was a good beer, and I could see myself drinking it again.
