Reviewing batch #2, bottled 2/12. Purchased a bomber from Bottles 101 in Kent,OH on 3/2.

A-Ruby red appearance, with a generous head

S-Smelling the malts here.

T-Malts, as expected, but with some hoppy bitterness. Smooth.

M-Nice and smooth.

O-One of the better doppels i have had, and I really enjoy doppels. Not too malty.

Picked this one up at Bier Thirty.... Shared tonight with Inflatablechair... Thanks for having me Sammy.... I needed it.

Pours a slightly hazed amber.... the head is off white but with a persistent retention and okay lacing.

Nose is pretty good... nice deep toast and some nice caramel... I think maybe hops are there, but I could be lying to myself.

Flavor actually has some hop bitterness that helps balance the malts.... light caramel and more toast... a bit nutty... again, I swear I get of grassy hoppiness... With warmth I picked up a bit of fruity esters... not exactly "clean", but pretty good on a tough style to do right.

Body is medium... carbonation seems about right, but is definitely "big bubble"...

3.5/3.5/3.5/3.5/4

This is a pretty good first attempt... I will rereview with further batches... a lager of this ABV is a bit of a challenge, and this is a nice jumping off point.
