Poured out of a growler into my Duvel tulip.

A – Poured out a slightly dark honey brown with one finger of frothy white head that stayed around. Spotty lacing.

S – Very nice rye aroma immediately comes through. Sweet malts, caramel and bready.

T – The rye malt flavor much like the smell rolls out first. A caramel sweetness follows along giving it a nice contrast. Vanilla hints? Seems to finish off with a spicy kick. Feel the alcohol just a tiny bit on the way down. Nice.

M - Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Feels alive in your mouth, tingly and clean. Smooth all around.

O – Very good brew here. Has great taste and is pretty well rounded. Enough rye and sweet flavors to satisfy anyone. Enjoyed this one a great deal and it went down very quickly. Wish I had more.

** Reviewer is a total homer for Matt and TBC brews. Get some and decide for yourself.

32 oz. growler poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Crystal clear amber body with a sizable off-white head. I split this into three pint glasses and each looked like it was going to overflow. The head quickly died down into some nice lacing, which eventually faded as well.

Smell - Characteristic doppelbock smells. Caramel malts dominate, but this one has a tinge of spice to it from the rye.

Taste - A little bit of sweetness at first, followed by a clean malt flavor. Caramel. Not too intense or varied, the way I'd hope from a great doppelbock, but good. What makes it nice is the way the rye kicks in at the back and leaves a nice spice. There's a light spice from what might be honey in there? Maybe some sort of complex sugar addition? I don't know.

Mouthfeel - Unbelievably easy to drink. I drank the whole 32 oz. growler dangerously quickly. It finishes the slightest bit dry, which is why I suspect some sort of sugar addition. Otherwise, it's easy going and a nice weight.

Overall - Another quality beer from TBC. Flavorful and easy to drink. I love having this place right down the road.
