Labeling states, "Helles/Doppelbock". I think the only characteristics of a Doppelbock on this is the high abv. I prefer to call this an Imperial Helles. True to style but has that alcoholic punch of a doppelbock. Toasty aroma. Head dissipates rather quickly (thank the abv) Rich malty pilsner flavor. peppery undertones. Very dry. High on the bitter end but pleasant.

When I took my first sip of this I couldn't believe that it was 8.00% ABV. There's one word to describe this beer: smooth. It's one of the easiest drinking beers I've ever had. There aren't any flavors that jump out and punch you in palate and I think that's the point.
