Poured a brown body with minimal head and lace. Mild, bready aroma and not much else. Soapy, yeasty, extra spicy with clove and pepper, hints of banana bread. Body has a little bit of heft so it's not slick or watery. Finishes spicy with a touch of malty sweetness and overall has a decent balance.

There is certain foaminess and fruit up front. The booz and the malt is rightly hidden, and come out in the aftertaste. Excellent doppelbock, and made in Richmond!!

Not a big fan of the style but this was very enjoyable. Most run too sweet for me ...this toed the line but had a subdued maltiness that I thouroughly enjoyed
