Pours a standard dark ruby/brown double bock color with minimal head and not much lacing. Carbonation is fairly light but thats correct for the style. Smells of sweet bread, a little caramel and molasses. Has the classic malty, sweet initial hit of a double bock that carries to the end. Not much hops here at all! Its tasty but Ive had better double bocks. The flavor isnt as chewy or deep as Troeggs or a Sam Adams double Bock. It starts strong but doesnt finish as well as those other two. The other issue is that a 6-pack is like $15.00 bucks and thats a bad value. There are better double-bocks for less money. Its worth a try but I believe there are better options out there for this style.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a high sided tulip glass.

Look is a rich ruby red with a thin off white head.

Aroma is a Belgian candy fruity combo.

Taste exactly matches aroma. Very very fruity.

Beautiful clear ruby red color with small cap.

Aroma of deep toffee and dark bread.

Taste is the scent writ large. Flavors develop more mid palate forward showing a denser toffee leaning toward the caramelized stage backed by a fullness of dark malt without roasted malt bitterness. Also something almost raisiny like an old sweet sherry that hasn't lost it's luster.

Full, almost chewy texture.

A rich, bold brew in a tweed jacket with an amiable expression.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Ruby red. Good Clarity. Light carbonation. Short head dissipates quickly.

Molasses, toffee, and butterscotch.

Taste
Molasses, toffee, and butterscotch. Caramel candies and a slight earthiness.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, chewy, smooth, and sweet.

Overall
Sufficiently sweet and smooth. Alcohol is well hidden.
