Poured from the bottle into a pilsener glass. A dark reddish brown beer with a shapely off-white head, with an aroma of light toffee, dried dark fruit, sweet wet grains, and some mellow spice notes. The overall aroma is homogenized, with the elements merging together. This smells like the Platonic ideal of a bock beer: A classic brown lager. The palate is similarly well-integrated, with no sharp corners or overtly bold flavors ... No one component tries to trump any other but there's complexity nonetheless. Quite crisp and dry for a doppelbock, with moderate carbonation and body on the thin side. Tastes like brown bread, nutty yeast, molasses, light rum, earthy ginseng spice, and sweet dough, with assertive hopping for the style. Finishes quite crisp and clean with some lingering noble hop spice and grass notes. Certainly well-crafted, although perhaps I was expecting more body and a richer, more sweet flavor profile.
