Produces a glowing, dark brown colored beer, with a huge, creamy beige head.

Smells of molasses and caramel malts, very sweet with a spicy licorice note, toned down by a tart whiff. A light earth profile builds the rustic foundation in this, on which the sweet malt profile settles atop.

This drinks great. Amazingly soft on the tongue, the mouthfeel is defined by a well accentuated, vivid carbonation, which prevents the beer from becoming too sweet by lending a mineralic note to the flavors.

The taste mirrors the nose - it is full of glazed caramel and toffee malts, sweet and fulfilling, balanced by a note of earth and grains. This first impression changes entirely, once the beer's hop profile becomes recognizable. It packs a dryness, which is reminiscent of bitter, earthen cold brew coffee, with a good amount of dried herbs in this case. Finishes with an reinvigorated toffee sweetness and a mineralic aftermath from the prominent hops, very clean and explosive on the tongue.

This is like an unforseen rollercoaster ride, with a pungent dryness, adding to the malty, sweet foundation of the beer, which results in a well composed, complex and very enjoyable Doppelbock.

Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has lots of dried fruits, mostly figs, dates and raisins, toasted malts and some brown sugar. Taste starts with the dark malts shining the most, continues with some of the dried fruits and finishes with some alcohol warmth and a touch of roasty bitterness to balance out the sweet malts. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. This is a really good doppelbock. I'm not really a huge fan of the style but I can appreciate such a well made beer.

Served in a hefeweizen glass, it pours a very dark brown, murky if you peer into it, with a slight orange hue perceptible when contrasting the beer against the light.
It formed a two-finger head, light brown, with excellent retention. Some lacing.

Sweet bouquet.
Caramel, biscuity, lots of malts, with a very pronounced spicy, floral hoppiness and a little booze right after each swirl. The booze delivers a dark fruit character as in raisins or prunes.

The flavor follows the nose, and builds on it.
The caramel, malty sweetness is very pronounced, and it almost reaches a honey note. The dark fruits are more assertive on the flavor than they are on the nose, becoming one of the dominant flavors. That complex sweetness is somewhat dominant upfront, but quickly a hoppy bitterness enters alongside the booze and balances the beer, which is overall actually very balanced. A molasses note appears after the beer starts warming up.
The aftertaste is long and bittersweet, with some booze and a dark fruits flavor.
Smooth, silky mouthfeel, with full body. The carbonation is mild, yet present and pleasant.

This is an excellent beer.

Taste: bold, strong alcohol kick with a malty and hop presence.
Complex fermented grains with a hint of sweet malt in the nose.
Dark amber and semi opaque with a amber head with tight bubbles and carbonation. Full body with some kick.

Pours deep copper with some golden highlights. Aroma is malty and rich, almost no hops. Taste is complex and strong, excellent doppelbock. Medium body with low carbonation. I really liked this beer, it gets better with temperature increase.
