look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in 12 oz. bottle. No date, but they just started bottling this, so it can't be that old. Poured into pint glass.

A: Pours clear, dark amber. Head is medium-hued tan, tight, dense, and two fingers thick. Head sicks around for a bit. Carbonation is pretty low.

S: Malty, grainy smell. Some dark fruits (prune, raisin, etc.) A bit of alcohol comes out of it, as well. Touch of spice is present, too.

T: Strong, bready malt up front. A bit of dark fruit after that. Noble hop presence, metallic bitterness, and graininess brings up the rear. Low bitterness at the end with a touch of alcohol.

M: Low carbonation, medium to heavy mouthfeel. Very smooth and easy to drink.

O: Not enough esters for a dopplebock, in my opinion. Still very, very good, though. Could use a bit more fruit, and it would be on par with some of the best German doppelbocks.
