Right off the bat this beer is not like a regular Dopplebock. It pours a super oily, dark brown with a thin tan head. It drinks with a load of body smacking you in the face and intense, dark flavors.
The beer has killer notes of tobacco, coffee, and a very rich chocolatey aftertaste. Very tasty beer, drinks more like a stout.

This beer is the best beer I've EEEVVVERRRR HADDDD, bottled, outa the tap, whatever, delicious. Dark dark day when I could no longer go into my local Three Floyds and take home (yet another) growler of the dark goodness.

IF ANYONE somehow manages to still have a bottle of the stuff, I am without a doubt willing to throw down a pretty penny for it!

Appears a dark turbid brown with a small tan head that fades into a mild cap. Spotty bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of toffee, caramel, cocoa, nougat, and herbal blasts.
Taste is if the aromas with perhaps a touch of cut wood and smokiness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick, semi dry, with aberry and cocoa lingering.

Thanks to Doug for sharing this FFF beer I never thought i'd see.

Poured into a tulip glass, it had a reddish brown color with a tan head of creamy foam. A thin collar of lacing around the edges and a broken skim results after a few minutes.

Nutty maple aromas, toasted malt, generally mellow.

Flavors are similar with a mild but persistent bitterness. Malt forward, somewhat toasty and even slightly rich in feel. For a year old doppelbock, this is holding up nicely. Lightly chocolatey and nutty with mild coffee undertones. Pleasant overall and worthwhile for sharing.
