Notes: Named for an esteemed and one-of-a-kind veterinarian from Michigan, this rich and toasty dark lager has aromas of sweet bread and caramel with flavors of light coffee and marshmallow. The finish is full-bodied and malty.

Can to lager glass.
The appearance was a soft amber color with a good transparency about it. Foamy white head dissipated into some bubbles and had a nice semi-filmy lace.
The aroma had an absolutely amazing blend of soft sweet roasted nuts, mellow chocolate tones, wafery/biscuity malts, subtle coffee sweetness, light vanilla/marshmallow and rich clean caramel whiffs.
The flavor leaned towards the sweet side with the rich notes of caramel, toast, nuts, super mellow tones of chocolate and some wafery/biscuits. Lean aftertaste of nuts, toast and caramel.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, perhaps a touch above with a good sipping quality about it. Good carbonation with a wonderful smoothness about it. Some stickiness with a nice finish of nuts, toast and wafers.
Overall, I'd say a pretty nicely done doppelbock, maybe not in the top tier next to Celebrator but it's definitely clocking in on that border of becoming top tier.

Poured a caramel color with a 4F head in. Brooklyn Ocktoberfest mug.

Good aroma of fruit esters.

Very malty MF.

Excellent taste- fruit esters.

Crisp, bitter finish.

Looks like we Americans are brewing German style beers which are as good or better than the German beers.
