This brew poured a dark amber with a huge tan head and sticky lacing. Aromas of dark malts and dried fruits were present and came through on tasting. The malts were huge and sweet yet cool and refreshing. A great balance- the thickness of the beer was offset by its effect on the palate. A perfect meal in a bottle.

Pours a very dark brown in color, damn near black. Nice inch of mocha colored head forms on the pour. Smell is dark roasted malts and I'm getting a bit of cocoa/coffee. Taste is lots of toffee. Some more roasted malts. This is incredibly full and creamy on the mouthfeel. What a beer, I don't recall having anything like this in a long while.

A: Pours a chestnut brown with dense tan head. Fades leaving behind film around the edges of the glass and lacing on the drinking side.

S: Molasses, roasted malt, has a bitter smell that I can't really place. Slight alcohol.

T: Chocolate, coffee, molasses, just a hint of bitter hops and alcohol. Really tasty at room temp.

M: For a smaller ABV beer, this has a pretty full mouthfeel. Almost chewy.

O: I don't have a ton of experience with Doppelbocks, but this is quite enjoyable.

Pours a dark black with bright burgundy highlights with a creamy head that left nice lace. Smells a smokey sweet molasses and prunes. Tastes of mandarin sourness, molasses and a burnt smokey sweet finish. Mouth feel is smooth and thin. As assertive and potent as this beer is, it is surprisingly drinkable.

A - Poured into a 16oz tulip. Great looking beer. Dark brown to red tint. Minimal head on this one that dissipated fairly soon.

S - Smell intensifies at it warms. Lots of malt up front with light fruit coming through. Definite Caramel notes.

T - Perhaps a tad bit of chocolate, definite caramel. Fruit follows through, moving to the front as time moves on.

M - Medium to light. Slight carbonation on the tongue.

D - About where I would expect from a 6-7%. A few beers is possible.

Great beer. Will have to go for the four pack next time!
