Continuing being underwhelmed with Sprecher beer, I had this one. Maybe it is just that nothing stood out. Maybe I was just in a weird headspace (my dog had just eaten my sofa), or maybe the beer just wasn't anything special. This beer again, was okay. It hit the low standard I have for craft beer. Is it a macro? no? then it's okay. I'll drink it.

This pours a medium brown color with not too much of a head. The aroma is very malty. The flavor is very well balanced with a delicious toasted, malt flavor and a bit of carbonation to give it some volume. Probably one of the better seasonal offerings from Sprecher's. Overall very nicely made.

LOOK: 12 oz twist off cap. Brown with an off white soapy foam. Recedes to a ring and leaves behind no real lacing.

SMELL: Bready toasted malts. A hint of smoke and fruity yeast. Malty dark lager beer.

TASTE: Caramel malts and a small note of dark fruits. Nutty, powdered cocoa notes from the malt are welcome here. Really no hint of alcohol, this is a deceiving brew. Hops are mild and provide a light citrusy note and soft bitterness.

FEEL: Medium bodied, medium level of carbonation. Sweet malty flavors linger into a pleasant finish.

OVERALL: A nice malty bock from Sprecher. I could easily drink mass quantities of this. Good flavor!

Appearance: nice clear bronze. Not much of a head, wispy and of white.
Smell: malty and fairly rich. A good nose for a doppel, not outstanding.
Taste: very similar to the nose. Good, rich, nothing outstanding, fairly simple.
Overall: just a repeat of the nose and taste comments. Good not great.
