3.98/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

16oz can stamped 02/17/21 (5 months ago) poured into a half liter mug at fridge temp 8.2% ABV. The beer pours mostly bright medium brown in color with mahogany highlights and light brown head. The head recedes to a thin cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is rich and features heavy toasted malt. The taste is semisweet toasted malt with minimal earthy and mineral notes. Minimal bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium plus bodied with average carbonation and a semi dry finish. No sign of the ABV in the taste or aroma. Not cloying, but rich throughout. Overall, very good.

16 oz can , 02/17/21, poured into a Guinness pint glass, a dark brown amber, with amber and red highlights that vary based on the angle of the surrounding lighting, and just a thin ring of lace. The smell is toasted grains, malt, and car,el and banana notes. The taste is right in line for the style, very much malt forward with hints of camel,cola, and bread . The heft is on the medium low side, a touch thin, and with a slightly above medium amount of carbonation. Overall, a very drinkable and good rep of the style.

Started out looking like a nearly ideal doppelbock and tried hard to get there. The look was spot on, the aroma was as one would expect for the style, and the taste followed the aroma. Very nice so far! The feel was where this one left me wanting just a little. Thinner than expected, not necessarily a bad thing, I just expected some viscosity. Makes the 8.2% too easy to drink, and if I had more than one to drink I would have certainly opened it up.
Not perfect, but few beers are. Still darned good and worth a try. Who knows, may flip all your switches!

16 oz can with a 17 February 2021 canning date stamped on the bottom.
Poured into a tall glass where a good beige head appeared over the dark reddish-brown body. Very smooth medium-full body with lightly lively carbonation.
Full rich flavor with more chocolate than expected. Unfortunately the quality of the aroma lags the other characteristics of this otherwise excellent doppelbock.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Canned 03/19/19. Bought at Loosa Brews, Tuscaloosa, AL.

Deep brown pour, with low crimson hues. Similar color to your run-of-the-mill brown Ale. Off white head, about half a finger high and quick to settle.

Caramel, dark fruit, and oak barrel on the nose. Indicative of the style, very well balanced. A good malt bill on the backbone helps to even everything out.

More malt predominance on the palate, but still a great oaky presence as well from the barrels. Hints of toffee and caramel re-emerge nicely.

Medium-bodied, smooth drinking. Very lightly sticky, mildly bready.
