This is a smoked Doppelbock that Avery is going to age on Grosling rum barrels.

Pours an amberish brown with a tan head. Nice lace.

Nose has caramel, toffee, nutty malts, dark fruits, peppery alcohol and light smokey tones.

The smoke presence is light in the flavor as well so it shouldn't get in the way of the flavors from the barrels. Lots of sweet malts, carmelized candies, figs, plums and nuts.

Full body is well carbonated. Tasty stuff, will be very nice after the barrel aging.

This beer is listed at 7.0% in the taproom now. Don't think it is actually 9% anymore.

There is always something new and interesting at the Taproom, but their ability to consistently knock it out of the park is so impressive. This was a great example of that.

APPEARANCE: A thin, quarter-inch head topped the 16oz. pour from Matt at the taproom. It receded rather quickly and underneath it left a deep mahogany colored beer that was much darker than expected. It was a bit hazy, but not too much.

SMELL: Wood chips and smoke. This was a gorgeous aroma, but it could stand to have been a bit stronger.

TASTE: Smoky with a slight dose of bacon. The smoke dominates and makes this a very mellow beer. A slight malt-flavor kicks in in the end, providing a nice little dose of sweetness, but ultimately this is a dry beer.

MOUTHFEEL: The best way to describe the feel of this beer is ticklingly sparkly. It is thinner bodied than I would expect from this beer, but still full of flavor. As I mentioned above, it is very dry until the very tail end where a kick of sweetness comes in to play.

OVERALL: Avery nails another style. In fact, they nail the style then take it in a uniquely Avery direction. That's what happened here.
