This is a fairly good example of this style. The flavor profile is fairly deep and rich -- dried fruit notes over a background of malty sweetness. However, it's almost too sweet for my taste, but this isn't a show-stopper. I'd have it again even though it's not an all-time favorite.

Pours dark brown with ruby/garnet hue. A head lasts. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate cake, caramel, cherry-like fruit, earthy, peppery spice.

The taste is of sweet dark malt, dark fruit with an earthy, peppery, rum-like spice balance. Clean lager finish.

It is full-bodied and very smooth.

An outstanding example of the style. It is up there with the classic German doppelbocks!

Quick Take: A very malty, sweet, tasty candy with a great bready mouthfeel, albeit hides the high alcohol levels. A liquid bread treat that is worth every penny!

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #90 (July 2014):

Deep, Bready, Sweet, Warming

Perhaps a classic now as it has been winning over beer geeks for over 20 years. Even with a massive maltiness there is a lot of balance here with a touch of roasted grain and alcoholic warmth. Drinkable as the size does not hinder the sipping at all. A prime example of the style and a must have.
