12oz can, canned on 11/07/17, served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Clear very dark amber. Initial 1/4" off white head died back to a thick ring at the edge, a thin skin across the top, and some small islands of lacing that slowly slid back down the glass.

Smell" Toasted malt, a hint of alcohol, some fruity esters with a swirl, and just a hint of something metallic.

Taste: Toasted malts, caramel, raisin, noble hops, with some coppery/metal notes at the very end.

Mouthfeel: Nice thickness, light underlying carbonation, dry finish. A bit too astringent at the finish. A bit of a warming sensation as well.

A great looking beer with good aroma and great start to the beer, but the metallic finish at the end is a bit too strong and takes away from the rest of the beer. It hold to style pretty well, but is let down by the metallic notes. I think they may have not quite gotten the water chemistry right on this one. Very close, but no cigar. One is enough.

Dark reddish copper, not much head.

This is much closer to a barleywine than I would have expected. I never really expect those kinds of notes when I get a doppelbock.

Sweet rasins, not as much yeast and malt breadiness as I want. It almost seems patiently aged.

Interesting, but misses the mark of a true doppel.

Enjoyed from the growler via Jungle Jim's in a snifter. This FINE doppelbock pours a dark reddish brown with a moderate head of off white foam that subsides to a thin ring, light layer, and light lacing. Nose of heavy brown sugars, dark fresh bread, raisins, and booze. Flavors follow the nose with rich brown sugar and caramel notes on the front and sides that fade to a sweet raisin bread note, a touch of light licorice, and warming booze on the aftertaste. Smooth and lightly creamy with a subtly dry finish. Most excellent.

Cheers
