A - Pours a very dark brown almost black with 1/2 inch light tan head that dissipates in a minute or two. A slight bit of lacing.

S - Prunes/raisins and other ripe fruit. A slight hint of coffee.

T - Semi-sweet chocolate with some bitterness at the finish. Reminds me of my mom's bitter-sweet cooking chocolate when I was a kid.

M - Medium body with a light bit of carbonation.

O - Very good dopplebock. Always love this one.

Had this as a first choice at the local pub. And a good choice it was. this beer always comes through, and if you've never tried a doppelbock before, this is about the best introduction you can get.

A: dark brown, not quite as black or oily looking as imperials or the like, more amber colors and a very modest off white head.

S: malty, hints of raisin or maybe chocolate in there. Notable sweetness along with toasty malt smell.

T: a cornucopia of dark, toasted, syrupy flavors. Complex and interwoven so that its hard to pick out the individual elements. Mild bitterness in the finish. Wonderfully drinkable.

M: creamy, full and smooth. Goes down so easily. Carbonation is gentle.

O: buy this beer. Drink it. Enjoy. What most beers should aspire to be. Only avoid this if you can't stand anything dark, or lagers.
