12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark bread, brown sugar, raisin, plum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and yeast ester notes; with decent strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark bread, brown sugar, raisin, plum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark bread, brown sugar, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice doppelbock. Good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A bit too dark/roasty for the style, but nicely enjoyable otherwise.
