Pours brown with a ruby tint. A thin beige head becomes a wide island. A little lacing sticks.

The smell is of toffee, cocoa/chocolate, dried fruits, slight alcohol.

The taste is of chocolate/cocoa powder, toffee. Dried fruits and a hint of toasted dark bread mix in. Mild earthy notes are present. Sweet, but balanced enough. Some alcohol warmth shows, but doesn't interfere. Semi-sweet finish.

It hit full-body. A touch of fizz almost brought it down just a bit, but it hangs in there.

This is a nice example of a doppelbock. Not as rich as some traditional classics, but overall it's a solid interpretation of a darker doppelbock.

Bottle poured into a shaker pint.

A - Mahogany in color with good clarity. Tan head holds a smaller cap. No lacing.

S - A wealth of caramel malts. Nuttiness and more mild fruitiness.

T - Starts with some nice caramel malts. Shows a red fruit quality midway and finishes with some astringent roast malts. Mineral quality. Lacks sweetness and smoothness.

M - Medium-full body, semi-sweet but finishes a little dry, medium carbonation.

O - Leading up to the taste, all was enticing. The taste though had some strange characters that were unusual and therefor hard to detail. Maybe its a mineral quality or a carbonation bite or possibly a strange hop bitterness but in summary, it lacked drinkability. To stay positive, it has plenty of aroma dimension and looks good.

Recommendation - Support your local Wisconsin brewery and give this a try but don't go too far for it, there are many imports better.

Nice dopplebock. Great bready munich malt aroma. On the low end of alcohol for the style, warm toasty malt, smooth for the strength. Basically a perfectly executed, by the numbers doppelbock, and I love it for that. Like a fresh version of Opptimator. Good show Potosi!
