What a fantastic beer. From beginning to end it is great in every aspect.
I starts with medium brown color and one finger tan head. Lacing all the way down the glass.
The smell is just amazing. It smells like caramel being heated up.
Taste is a little more bitter than the smell. It is creamy and smooth.
I could drink this all year long, but it is perfect for cool fall evening.

12oz bottle poured into celebrator glass

A - dark cloudy brown body with a light brown head two fingers deep. decent retention and good lacing.

S - dark fruit, dates, cherries, cranberries. caramel brown sugar and toffee sit in the back. superb nose on this.

T - dark fruit, dates, brown sugar caramel. nice grassy hop presence thats muted but there finishes it off.

M - medium to full bodied with medium to low carbonation. coarse coffee grind feel to the body that works with this beer.

O - such a brilliant beer. if you have not had this go get some.

very dark red/brown colour. good amount of tan head with some nice lacing that sticks around for a bit.

smell was nice - sweet, fruity, and some roasted malts.

taste was similar but not quite as good - roasted malt, sweet/fruity, bit of molasses. wasn't the best thing i've ever tasted but definitely still a good beer, i enjoyed trying it.

Pours a very very deep ruby/brown with a tan head which recedes to a thin lace. Smells of dark fruits, licorice, and a hint of caramel.

Thick and full in body. Dark malts and caramel up front, raisins and dark fruit on the back end with a mild hop presence to balance things out. Lets you get that dark fruit taste without the lingering fruity after taste. Also has some earthy under tones.

Tastes are good and alright but nothing spectacular. I also expect a bit more out of a Doppelbock. This bottle aslo has some age to it though and is almost a year old now, so maybe some of the flavors have died down. Oh well.
