look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Dark brown (near black) in color. The tan froth fizzles away. Aroma is deep and rich with plum, brown sugar and cherrry. Taste is just as complex as it is deep with prominent notes of chocolate and plum preceding other notes of brown sugar, caramel, roasted malt, taint tannin and nut. Substantial in body, but never heavy. Complex but balanced. This is just what a doppelbock should be, and makes all the searching and kissing frogs well worth it.

Appearance - The poor was a murky brown color with off-white bubbles clinging to the side of the glass.

Smell - The nose is a bouquet of dark fruit and prunes.

Taste - At the front, I get dark fruit and sweet prunes. Caramel, graham cracker, and big chewy malts round out the profile. The dark fruit continues to the end.

Mouthfeel - The chewy malts are definitely mirrored in the mouthfeel.

Overall - I love a good German doppelbock and this is top-of-the-line.

Color is dark dark brown but is burgundy when held to the light. Thin frothy off-white head dissipates steadily leaving no residual head or lacing.

Smell has notes of dark fruits, dried raisins, plums and dates. Some bready malts come through on the nose. Bit of alcohol on the back end.

Taste follows the nose with those dark fruit flavors and a nice bready malt backbone coming through. A tad sweet - with a coca cola like flavor. Bit of bitterness on the back end from bittering hops that quickly mellows into a bready/oaky lingering flavor on the tongue.

Feel is light and drinkable. Prickly carbonation.

Overall a really nice doppelbock.

Good balanced beer but not very complex. This is not the best doppelbock I've had but it remains a pleasure to drink with toffee, cinnamon, a bit of green apple and a light herbal character
