3.52/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dark amber body; dense, creamy head. Malty, sweet aroma; warm caramel. Much like the smell, malty with a caramel presence; balanced blending of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Heavy body; rich and warm.

A decent doppelbock yet without any distinctive qualities.

Color like a light cola. Minimal head. Minimal bubbles.
Floral and like a baked heavy sweet bread.
Brown sugary sweet maltiness. Plum and raisin fruits. Hint of cola. Just the right tart.

TASTE: Bread crust, caramel, cola, and a background earthy quality.
FEEL: Medium thick, sticky, high carbonation.
OVERALL: Almost to the chewy level, no off flavors, lots of sweet caramel malt.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: poured into a pint glass to a reddish brown topped by a finger of dense off white head that fades to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of caramel and toffe with some banana
T: taste is toasted malts, caramel and toffee with some slight banana ester. Swallow is more toffee and caramel with lingering babana and slight spicy alcohol
M: The beer is full and silky in the mouth with soft but adequate carbonation and a semidry finish
O: overall this is a pretty good doppelbock. Decent flavors and complexity that represents the style well.
