Had this on 2014-02-16 in Columbia, PA. Tasted side-by-side with an Andech's Doppelbock.

A - Clear but very dark mahogany with a 2.5-finger tan head that sticks around and leaves very good lacing.

S - Fresh, lightly toasted wheat bread, molasses, touch of clove. Not real strong. Similar to an Andech's but with just a bit of sour dough thrown in. The aroma on this is slightly stronger than the Andech's.

T - Dark fruit (plum and fig), molasses, medium-roasted grain with a touch of char. Earthy spice, a touch of chocolate and a very nice bit of roasted and hop bitterness. Finishes with a chalky chocolate and toasted sour dough finish with more of the balancing bitterness. Dries moderately / reasonably for the style. Very enjoyable.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Not substantial but not watery. An easy drinker.

O - An excellent Doppelbock. Compared to the Andech's, the contrast between the various flavors is more pronounced / bolder. The Andech's has more of an integrated / balanced flavor plus a firmer mouthfeel. In this head-to-head comparison, the Andech's wins by a nose. You can't go wrong with either.
