So I decided to pop this one open last night. Really not that big of a fan of their lineup but hey I will give it a whirl.

Poured out a medium amber with a smooth hea of white that faded quickly and left behind only small lacing, ehh. Aroma is overspiced. Like candy with nutmeg, cinnamon, tons of weird candy like aromas and flavor. Really just off to me and not befitting the style at all. This carried right over into the flavor which was sickingly a mess and just way over the top with the spices and no hint of deep caramel malts.

Overall no way its a dopplebock and no way would I do it again
