Excellent, ridiculously underrated Doppelbock. I like it better than Weihenstephaner Korbinian or Spaten Optimator. Glowing dark amber, clear body with a creamy off-white head. Smells and tastes of toasted bread, malt and Doppelbock sweetness. Decadent, rich mouth feel with low-to-moderate carbonation. Packs quite a punch at 8.3% alc./vol. (2014 edition). A steal at $4.49 a bomber if you like Doppelbocks.

From notes on 3/20/14

Sweet malty aroma. Burnt dark red color. Nice sized head. Lots of toffee flavors with a malty finish. Very good. Best Doppelbock I can remember drinking.

A: This poured a nearly opaque light mahogany with some light tan head.
S: It smelled like bready and nutty malt, with some earthy copper hops and oak and sweet toffee.
T: It tasted like sweet caramel and earthy nutty malts, with some oak and copper hops. It had a clean earthy and sweet aftertaste with some alcohol warming.
M: It was thick with moderate carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a nice doppelbock with simple but enjoyable scent and taste. The body was great, but the finish was hot, so it was better to sip. Actually seems like it could improve with a year or two in the cellar. Fresh is good, not great.
