Very chewy, this is a very robust beer.

Smells sweet and of roasted malts. The Smell is very pleasant. No hops in the nose

The taste is roasted malt and sweetness first with hop undertones. At the end the hops creep forward until they are the foremost flavor.

Like many bocks and dunkel lagers it has a taste which reminds me of molasses.

This is great doppelbock that I highly recommend.

A: Deep brown. decent carbonation. Very little head. Little to no lacing.

S: Grainy. Dark. Citrus. Overall, the taste of Malt soothes the back end of the nose.

T: Cherries. Dried Fruit. Brown sugar. Raisins. Hints of hops on the back end.

M: No bitterness. Love the malt and fruit taste on the back end. helps to make the maouthfeel smooth. Lovely finish that trails of in an alcohol over time.

O: Good. Probably my favorite Spaten product.
