The beer pours a rich looking brown with a thin head that fades quickly to nothing...hardly like the overflowing head shown on the beer's label. The nose has a caramel sweetness and subtle yeastiness. Very little spice is present. As expected, the taste is rich and bready with a lingering sweetness. There is almost no bitterness on the back end and the alcohol is well hidden. There is a slight fruitiness reminiscent of prunes followed by notes of tobacco. Medium bodies beer that feels heavy during this hot summer day. Overall, this beer is as expected and a reliable doppelbock.

Dark chocolate brown. Pours a thin head with no retention and zero lacing. Opaque quality of the brew and lack of head reminds me of prune juice.

Tons of sweet dark fruits and malts in the aroma along with a piney spice and touch of alcohol.

Flavor profile is highly roasted with toasty whole wheat and smooth dark chocolate. Prune sweetness mellows things out a bit. Mild earthy hop comes to life and attempts to balance but is quickly reminded that this beer is all about the malt.

Burly medium to full body with lots of lingering malt texture. Fairly low carbonation. Smooth, slick feel.

Not as good as I expected but still really solid. I think it could use just a little more balance from the hops.
