Can from HomeBrewStuff. Solid, complete doppelbock, not outstanding, but a great example of the style. Mostly clear brown, small airy head. Nice malty sweetness, drying out towards the end, but still maintaining some pleasant swett taste. Tasty stuff.

Pours a clear deep mahogany brown. An aggressive pour produces barely a half inch of tan, frothy, very shortlived head that leaves a no appreciable lace, surface cap & collar. Very malty as expected. Aroma is thin & weak dark bread, dark fruit, baked sweet potato, roasted nuts & molasses. Taste is very sweet, dark bread, brown sugar, roast, raisin, fig, sweet potato, licorice & pepper. There is a peppery spiciness in the sweet potato, burnt Brown sugar, fruity & lightly boozy finish. Fruit & molasses mix with a hint of hop bitterness to make up the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, mouth coating & creamy yet prickly in the finish & smoothing in the aftertaste.

Dark translucent copper with medium head
Smells is chocolatey but lighter than a stout
Taste is chocolatey and dark just enough to cover the alcohol perfectly
Overall a great dark brew

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 10/30/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/light brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, roast, raisin, plum, wood, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, roast, raisin, plum, wood, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal/woody hop bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of aramel, honey, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light fruit, wood, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Nicely clean on lager flavors, not too fruity/yeasty. Minimal dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is a delicious doppelbock. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and east to drink for the ABV. Rich and clean Munich/Crystal malt flavors, just enough noble hops to balance the sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
