This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a ruddy brown color with a slim finger-ed white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Messy semi-sticky lacing glossed all around the glass nicely. The smell took in the bready/biscuit malts running through a light semi-spicy rye sliding in for a nice balance. Toffee and caramel malts follow through as well for a nice accompaniment. The taste was bready sweet and then a spicy rye follows in delicately to balance nicely. Rye hits a bit more in the aftertaste. Semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good. Overall, I’d say this was a pretty good doppelbock that I would have again.

12 is. bottle poured into a stemmed glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep, clear amber. One-finger eggshell head. Attractive.

Aroma: Candied apples, a little booze, malt sweetness, maybe some cherries.

Taste: Those sweet malts and fruits are right there. Apples, cherries, maybe grapes. Caramel, toffee are there, too. Nice booze kick - not medicinal.

Mouthfeel: Solid body for a lager. Not heavy, but substantial.

Overall: One of the better domestic bocks you'll have. A winner from a brewery that trades in great beer.

From the ancient bottle, it pours a coppery amber with a small head, dissipating quickly into a small ring. caramel malt predominates in the nose. The mouth enjoys the slightl y burnt caramel toffee flavor. Enjoyable.

A reddish/brown color with a small tan head.
Aroma of caramel and fruit.
Caramel and toffee taste up front, followed by some apple.
Rather thick and syrupy.

7/5...pours soft brown with scant foam island on top. Malty nose. Sweet. Hints of vanilla and cola. Flat malty taste, thick, some bitter astringency. Caramel/toffee flavors. Hints of cherries mixed in the malt. Smooth.

Great brewer, great 2 bock. Give this some time, it gets better.

A - Pours a tan bubbly 1 finger head that fades at a brisk pace, but leaves sheets of lacing, lots of legs, over a slight hazy, mahogany colored body.

S - Church and caramel apple. Nose brings sweet candy apple malts, syrup, and caramel toffee notes with faint hops. Too faint for me.

T - Taste follows the smell but ample - with more candy malts, plenty of nut-filled, caramel, toffee. A candy apple both glazed and caramel, with fruity esters and complex and lingering - date, fig, nutty toffee.
Hint of warming alcohol, finishing with gentle spicy hops in the background.

F - Mouth is fuller bod, thick and a bit syrupy but chewy and fluffy a bit as well, decent carb, little warming booze. Satisfying with rich food, gravies and sauces.

Best Doppel Bock made in US I have tried, compares well with Dominator.

Btld. 01.18.16. Consumed 05.16.16.

A: Nice light brown-cola in the back-light from the pour while sitting a dark burgundy red in the vessel. A tan, frothy, and slight head of moderate hold provides minimal lacing that was weakly holding on the walls. Visible carbonation was almost non-existent.

S: Sweet toasted caramel bread, dried toffee, is balanced by some earthy green hops. Hints of chocolate, licorice and fresh wort with a very light intention and short duration factor.

T: Heavy on the toffee for flavor, with some sweet caramel chew, and some fresh milk chocolate. Nutty brown malting with a bit of off hop flower bitterness, some mildewy suggestions, occurs on the swallow. age?

M: caramel like mouthful has very little carbonation and a soft chewy texture.

O: this has a very sweet toffee and caramel like malting that will no doubt limit repeats and makes this a dessert style beer. There was a questionable off hop flavor at the trail end with some sour and musky factor, perhaps age, lightstruck a factor? don't know. Two roads makes some decent brew, perhaps this just wasn't for me though, a bit overly sweet and off putting finish.

12 oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance
Reddish copper with 1 finger of bone white head. Good clarity with lively carbonation.

Nose
Brown bread, caramel, molasses, cracker, and grassy Noble hops.

Taste
Brown bread, caramel, and molasses. Toasted biscuit and crackery Pilsner malt a-plenty. The spicy, grassy Noble hops are providing perhaps a bit too much bitterness to style.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, crisp, slick, sticky, and bitter.

Overall
It smells wonderful but the bitterness knocks it down a peg for me. The alcohol is well hidden.
