Excellent, dark tan head atop a a very dark body - nearly ebony in thicker portions of the glass, but a garnet-tinged cola color when held up to the light. Overall the presentation gives a strong impression of dark bread. Retention is OK, eventually fading to a tiny foamy ring around the edge of the glass. No lacing.

Wonderful nose, a blend of just-sweet-enough dark fruit, dark bread, nuts, cola, and light caramel. Slightly floral. Nothing off; very traditional, a very aromatic beer with a somehow delicate hand.

Very similar on the palate. There's a hint of cherry I can't quite place, and a note of citrus peel from the hops, but the main presentation is a slightly grainy and bready malt base. Mild roast and coffee notes; just a bit of brown sugar.

Crisp mouthfeel with plenty of bite among the gums; slick, light-to-medium body.

Overall, this is a slightly fresh take on a Doppelbock that is still traditional. I wouldn't replace a classic like Celebrator with this in rotation, perhaps, but it's a welcome change up and a well executed beer.
