a deep amber almost brown, clean pour with 2 fingers of head with nice retention. smells malty sweet, caramel, molasses, mild cocoa, sweet nutty notes of pecans/walnuts, raisins. flavor-wise, it is very similar to the aromas.. very nutty, sweet and malty with a nice sugary kick towards the back end. for the abv, it drinks fairly easy with a creamy mouthfeel, medium body, and moderate amount of carbonation.

this is a pretty nice offering, and the first beer i've had from this brewery. i wouldn't mind seeing what they're capable of with other styles.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown/mahogany color with a one finger tan colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is bready and of a darker fruit aroma. The darker fruits are mainly of raisin and prune but have some cherry in there as well. With these aromas there is also a light boozy smell of a more rum like aroma.

Taste – The taste begins bready and sweet with a whole lot of dark fruit flavors upfront. Raisin and prune are the most prevalent of the sweet with some lighter caramel and toffee flavor coming to the tongue more toward the middle. Along with the sweet, so too comes some flavors of a light spice and some yeast as well. Toward the end a boozy flavor develops on the tongue leaving a sweet and warming feel to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. Both are good for the slightly sweeter and fruity flavors of the brew as well as the lighter boozy flavors.

Overall - .A sweeter and rather pleasantly fruity tasting dopplebock. It was rather enjoyable overall and one to try if you get the chance.
