Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

My introduction to the Atwater family of beers. It pours a rather dark sienna topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises deep caramel, light roasted malts, graham cracker, dark breads, and a twinge of cocoa powder. The taste brings in more of the same, with the sweetness inherent in the smell coming through a bit subdued, the breadiness taking firm control. There's a touch of vague fruit in the finish, but it doesn't stick around long enough for any sort of positive confirmation. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly smooth feel. Overall, a pretty nice d-bock, one that doesn't overdo it in any category save drinkability.

A - Pours pitch black with a two finger head that quickly dissipates to minimal lacing and cap.

S - Chocolate and malt take up all the aroma.

T - Taste is almost identical to the smell, sweet chocolate at first turning more to maltiness on the swallow. Enjoyably roasted aftertaste.

M - Surprisingly light body, minimal carbonation. Needs more body.

O - Overall a decent doppelbock, flavor is on the light side but good. Needs a fuller body and slightly more depth would help it out. Would pass next time.
