look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma has a rich caramel malt aroma mixed with lemon and pine.
The taste starts with caramel sweetness, then some moderate pine and lemon bitterness comes through, finishes with the caramel sweet again.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's a hoppier and less sweet doppelbock. I enjoyed it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - amber cloudy, minimal head and lacing

S - toffee/caramel/malt/sugar, booze

T - malts dominate, as with the nose, toffee/caramel/brown sugar, booze and peppery hops on the back end

M - rich and syrupy

O - a different take on the style, more hops than I expected, certainly big and bold, but in the end rather average

Pours brownish-orange with a decent sized off white head.

Smells citrusy and slightly sweet.

Tastes- Hoppier than I was expecting. I saw doppelbock and my mind went to Korbinian but this beer is much more bitter. More hops and citrus than anything else. That being said, once I got over my expectations I enjoyed this beer. The bitterness is not over whelming by any means and the citrus notes are pleasant.

MF-Medium body and slightly carbonated.

Overall- Not what I think of when I think doppelbock but a pleasant beer nonetheless.

Poured from a bomber into a pils-style glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- One-finger cream-colored head with decent retention for the ABV. Brown-orange coloration in the body with robust carbonation and semi-opaque. Not a bad looking beer. A bit odd to be honest.

S- Slight touch of brandy and dark fruits. Has elements of a quad in it. Earthy notes, rich malts, and a sweetness. Complex and enjoyable.

T- Very hoppy, aggressively so. It pairs up with the high alcohol content for a punch in the mouth. Hop oil, brandy, citrus, grapefruit, some sugar in the end. Not much. Oofah.

M- Thick bodied, finishes wet.

O- Taste was crazy. Not a bad brew, but I don't think I'll be having it again. 22 ounces might be tough to get through.

22 oz bottle poured into a .5l cylinder.

A: Lovely pour, bronze color, creamy, tight, lasting head. Great color and islands of foam, modest lacing.

S: caramel malts, toffee, walnuts, toasty copper malts,plus grassy and herbal hops. Very attractive, better as it warms, goes well with food.

Food: (in this case lightly sauteed radish, spinach, arugula just cut from garden combined with walnuts, pine nuts, lemon juice and a bit of this beer)

Taste:Beefy malts, nuts, toffee and caramel, with hint of darker malts. Fresh bread and wheat, then also hoppy, grassy with esters and alcohol 'power', at 9%.
touch Some fruity lager character Finish gets a little bitter, tingly, but more estery, syrupy. Still a nice finish and a solid, strong, ie DOUBLE beer.

Mouth - fuller bodied, little syrupy, with warming booze, plus upbeat carbonation. Appropriately weighty in mouth feel balance by carbonation, tingle, alcohol. A good meditation beer.

Overall - Definitely would come back to this one. Would love to share with a friend. Great with food. Great deep double alcohol experience. Feels good after. Warming. Good winter beer.

Very solid and makes me want to try more Full Sail, employee owned.
