500 ml bottle was poured into a mug.

Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown amber color with no vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Aww man, liquid bread baby. Caramel, toffee, lager yeast, grassy hops, raisins, figs, toasted, and bready malts.

Taste: Nice and malty like a doppelbock should be. Extremely tasty and delicious. A little warm booze too.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little chewy, some booze alcohol, low to medium carbonation, some sweetness, and like eating a meal. Very delicious.

Overall: Got to love German doppelbocks. Especially monks brewing this beer sine 1330. Cheers to the monks who brew this beer and cheers to all the other people who have had the chance to enjoy this treat of a beer.

On-tap 3/11/2014 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a dark reddish color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains dark fruit, lager yeast, brown sugar, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of dark fruit, caramel and brown sugar. Then a hearty malt character comes in along with some lager yeast breadiness. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
