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

Pours almost black, a very dark, yet vivid, brown color with ember hints and a foamy small head, soon vanished into a glass coating lacing.

Smells of spicy licorice, rustic bread, dried plums and bakers chocolate. This forms a very intriguing, well balanced and complex nose, relying on a rich, diverse maltiness. Honey and toasted hazelnuts, together with just a dry whiff complete the aromas in this, hinting to a well brewed, tasty beer.

Has a soft, vivid carbonation, showcasing a medium bodied beer, which puts its focus on the malts theoughout, while producing an amazing depth of flavors, soothed by a nice whipped cream fluffiness.

Tastes of milk chocolate, caramel, rustic bread crust, old pepper hulls, earth and marzipan. Awesomly complex, sweet but with an earthen balance to it, which makes it possible for the flavors to develop flawlessly, enriched by the soft carbonation, which lets the beer glide gently over the tongue. Licorice sets in after the swallow with a short Coca-Cola like sweet peak, immediately toned down by bakers chocolate, a prominent and sudden dryness and rustic bread.
The finish provides another reference to the supersoft mouthfeel with a sparkly carbonation hint in it, gently complimenting to earth and toffee - rustic and well-rounded.

Awesome Bock - rustic, sweet, malty, earthy with an intriguing depth of flavors to it, which tend to benefit from each other the whole time. There is even a short, warming peak to be found, hinting to the bigger body of the beer and its purpose of being a very drinkable, unique winter warmer.

Poured a dark cloudy brown color in a Pilsner glass with a 3F head.
Aroma: intense. Deep chocolate, malt, with a touch of sweet dough.

Mild body, light carbonation.

Taste: deep chocolate and malt followed a light Bready finish.

Wow! One of the finest Doppelbocks I have tasted in a while. The depth of flavor and aroma in this beer make it a standout in the style.
