12 oz bottle, packaged on 1/31/2018.

Ruby brown color. Great clarity. Big, frothy, light tan head with good retention. Rich, heavy malt aroma. Caramel, toffee, molasses, and toasted malt. Sweet caramel flavor with big toasted malt overtones. No hops or yeast. Smooth yet strong, noticeably towards the upper range of alcohol for a traditional doppelbock. Boozy and warming in the finish. Full bodied, smooth and sticky.

Overall, a strong and rich doppelbock. Even slightly past the recommended shelf life of three months, this has held up incredibly well. Delicious.

Serving: 12 oz bottle (“PKG 01/31/2018”) poured into a 9 oz Libbey Embassy snifter.

Appearance: Clear, reddish amber with a modest depth of tan head and spotty lace.

Smell: Ripe dark fruit, caramel, toasted grains and earth.

Taste: Depths of malty flavor: caramel, dried fruit, cocoa, vanilla. Mildly earthy hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with smooth, creamy feel and moderate carbonation.

Overall: Tasty, malty brew that remains balanced and drinkable.
