L: Opaque copper color. Small crackling head that faded fairly quickly.

S: Bready malt and raisins.

T: Caramel malt, dark fruit, raisins, earthy, a little bit of alcohol. More dark chocolate and nutty flavors come out as it warms.

F: Low carbonation, moderate body. Dry finish.

O: Not what I was expecting compared to other dopplebocks I have had, so that threw me off a little at first I think. It got better as it warmed. Overall not a bad brew, but I probably won't get it again.

Had 0.5l on tap at a Munich restaurant.
Arrived in a branded stein with a hazy brown-copper body and a tannish thick head. An aroma of molasses, cocoa and candied cherries. Tastes of canned brown bread, coffee and malty sweetness. Mouthfeel was full and chewy. I easily quaffed 2/3 before the meal and the last 1/3 to cut the grease on my veal schnitzel dinner.

Pours a slighty hazy, orange-brown color; a bit lighter than I remember. Creamy, off-white head that dissipates a little too fast. Nice lacing. Malty, sweet, caramel apple aroma. Dark fruit-like, figs, but also similar to a red grape variety. Lovely. Flavors of rich, toasted malts, but not too heavy. More figs. Smooth, round body. Just a really nice Doppelbock.
