On tap at Bridgewater's Pub in Philadelphia, PA.

A - Dark brown with a thin tan head.

S - Toasted bready malt, caramel, somewhat nutty.

T - Amazing taste. Burnt toffee, caramel, toasted biscuit, and dark fruits. Lots of sweetness up front, but earthy hops keep everything in check. Notes of chocolate and nutty malt come through as it warms.

M - Creamy, smooth, medium-full body. Crisp and clean with decent carbonation.

O - All of the flavors here are in perfect harmony with one another. This is an all-around excellent double bock.

Bottle purchased from AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

Poured into my Abandon Brewing snifter. Deep, dark brown. Looks kind of like a stout, really. 1 inch head. Small amount of lacing.

Smells bready and sweet, with some dark fruits, like plums.

Tastes pretty similar, with roasty bread like flavors, intermixed with sweet plum flavors. Gotta be one of the maltiest beers I've ever had.

Full body, low carbonation.

The classic and archetype for the dopplebock style, and one I always enjoy.
