Poured from bottle to pint glass.

A- Dark caramel toned. a bit less than a fingers head, little to no retention. no lacing either.

S- Roasted malts, yeast, dark fruits, dark bitter chocolate.

T- Palate follows the nose a bit. Yeasty/Spiced bread, roasted malt and some toffee/dark bitter chocolate. some dark fruit undertones. Sweet and malty!

MF- Medium- medium/heavy body, smooth with a great medium carbonation. Finishes great with a dry warmth that sticks to your mouth. Feels like a belgian!

O- Not bad at all. I seen this beer a hundred times, never got around to it until now unfortunately. It is a great beer, but a bit too hyped up for my taste. The price was incredibly reasonable, so I jumped on it, and felt like trying something "out of the norm." Worth a try, but not to go out of your way for.

Doppelbock to tulip glass.

A: Pours a coffee brown with three fingers of fluffy tan head which slowly deflates over the course of a few minutes.

S: Roasted, sweet, dry fruity malt, toffee, chocolate malt balls, and nutty rye bread. In the secondary, dried fruit like pineapple.

T: Malt and more malt, roastiness, oxidization and a whiff of coffee, some fruity esters without the explicit fruit from S:. Finishes with that dry, lagery taste on the finish which I don't care for. Bone dry.

M: Medium-full body and medium carbonation. The carbonation feels great, smooth and almost crisp.

O: One of the references for the style. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan of the style.
