Notes: German style Doppelbock made with pilsner, Abbey, Munich, Smoked, and Carafa malts resulting in a complex malt character. A rich malty lager with dominant bready malt character.

I really enjoy all of People's brews and I saw this one on draft and I had to try it!

A - Darker brown color that looked just a little darker than a cola. Very fine off-white head that had some staying power.

S - Good malt and caramel notes in your nose. Some of the traditional German lager yeast tones were there but not as strong as some of the Old Country's beers. Good but not great.

T - A very pleasant mix of malt, caramel, and smooth lager flavor. No real hops to this beer just the malty flavors come through. The characteristic lager flavor is also present but isn't as predominant since it is mostly masked by the malt. There is some balance and it is a cleaner drinking bock-type beer.

M - Medium to light mouth-feel. Definitely not as thick or flavorful as some of the dopplebocks I've had before. Moderate to light carbonation that is fine for this beer since it isn't too thick to begin with. A very drinkable beer.

Overall, a good beer but I would tend to put it in the bock category instead of the "dopplebock." style just because of the smaller flavor impact. It is very drinkable and there is a good flavor but I would rather have something like a Salvator that has more of everything. I would get this again over any watered down lager but not my favorite offering from People's.
