Excellent Doppelbock with great flavor. Its just bitter enough to be satisfying, with a nice roasty flavor. Not too sour, not too sweet. In my opinion, I opened the bottle ice cold, but the flavor improved as it warmed a bit. The bottle's presentation is also entertaining.

A great beer. Pours dark with a tan head. The smell is raisins, dates with a hint of chocolate. The flavor is fruity raisin but extremely smooth. Overall a great beer!

It pours dark brown with a two finger head. The aroma is fairly sweet, with caramel and molasses. The taste is boozy and sweet with a late bitterness. Medium body and some noticeable carbonation.

Taste is creamy and sweet with curious molasses undertones. A fine brew indeed.

On draft from local German Restaurant. Dark brown with head that disappeared quickly but was aromatic and pleasing while it lasted. A dark fruity smell that matched its smooth rich taste. Sweet, fruity, chocolate taste with a touch of bitter. Not a frequent repeat at $8 a tall glass but definitely memorable.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a nice dark brown with good head (and retention). Nose is figs, plums, bread, nuts, and caramel. Taste is divine. Beautiful mixture of figs and plums, with a hint of sweet and bitter. Lingering notes of toffee and chocolate. This is so great. Mouthfeel is medium, but really coats the mouth and sticks around.

From the bottle, it pours a dark ruby brown with a modest head, soon reducing to thin ring. Malt and raisins in the nose...and mouth. Enjoyable, but my bottle may be a little old as it is not stellar.

L: nice dark brown with a finger head that fades too quickly and light lacing
S:strong malt sweetness over whelming molasses
T: follows the noise and fruit cake like raisin with roasted malt and coffee undertones
F:Nice carbonation not overly sweet or chewy but all in a good way

O: a nice beer well done to the style and glad I have a four pack and did. Not grab the single
