Poured a creamy, off-white, but mostly-diminishing head atop a beautifully deep, oily hued combination of amber and reddish-brown. The smell is purely, and of pure grains and cereals. Really, a wonderful presentation of the style. Deep color and deep aroma. All this before the first sip, I can't wait. A light hoppy tinge is another enticing factor to this one.

The initial flavor is slightly sweet, with the grains and malts really plotting themselves firmly on your palate. A slightly acidic warmth is present as well.

This is a great shining example of what this style is to be. The mouthfeel is a medium body, and a medium-length finish.

This is the best of any bock or doppelbock I have ever had. It has convinced me to expand myself away from ales more.

A- Dark, dark, red. Little light shows though the glass. Foamy head. It was a big head and then it died to about a rim around the glass.

S- Big dark fruits. Deep roasted malts. Light smokiness. Molasses and brown bread present. Sweet and some kind of bitterness. Big and bold. Malt lovers dream.

T- lots of roasted/toasted maltiness. Molasses type sweetness. Bready. Earthy type bitterness. No real hop presence.

M- Full bodied. Sticky. Rich. Regardless of the fact that this is full bodied, it is easy to drink.

Overall this beer is real special. So far this is my favorite German beer. Maltiness ,bready goodness. So big and bold in flavor, but not too big in alcohol. This would be awesome with pot roast!
