I waited twelve long months for this beauty to come my way again.

A: A deep and dark, yet clear mahogany with a thin milky head. Lacing is minimal.

S: Not too much here. Roasted malt comes through the most.

T: A dark fruitiness fades into a super malty roasted flavor. God, is it good. Very bold, but not too much so.

M: Pretty thick, but with a wine-esque acidity. A very sticky aftertaste isn't my favorite thing.

O: Man o man, is this stuff excellent. I'm a huge fan of bocks, so this is right up my alley. No shortage of great beers in Montana, but this one is special.

A: Dark, dark amber. Not quite black, still slightly translucent. Doesn't leave any sticky irregular foam. The foam is silky and thin and drifts down the glass.

S: Nice and light. Just a hint of sweet roast, very mild and clean.

T: Starts off with a bit of tanginess which fades quickly to sweet red fruit flavor which is balanced out with a mild roast. Very nicely balanced; nothing stands out as too bold or overbearing.

M: Nice mouthfeel except for a lingering roast aftertaste. Possibly a bit thick for my taste, but easily can overlook that for the amount of alcohol it's that's in there.

O: Excellent winter warmer. Very nicely balanced. Great soft flavor, but still a deep rich mouth filling beer. You would never know this beer delivered 8% alcohol.

Appearance- pours with a thin surface head and a dark red-brown tone

Smell- mild noble hop tones with lightly toasty malt character, very mild mannered overall

Taste- sweet bread with nice yeastyness, mellow hop and malt isn't as sweet as i normally find doppelbocks

Mouthfeel- medium bodied with crisp bite on the end

Overall- a good standard version of a German classic, nothing super spectacular or over the top

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with a half finger light tan head that dissipated quickly to a thick film and ring around the glass. Light aroma of caramel malt, dark dried fruit. Flavor is caramel and bready malt, dried fruit, nuts and a hint of rye bread. Finishes malty with light hop bitterness. A very nice flavor profile. Medium bodied. Great malt flavor with other interesting flavors. I liked this quite a bit.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

LOOK: Dark brown with edges of garnet, thin but sturdy lacing

SMELL: Herbal, hint of alcohol, molasses bread batter, spicy, clean, grassy

TASTE: Silky smooth, creamy, big body, full malt jacket, toasted grain, bready, grassy, malt sweetness, nutty, mild husk, faint broth, malty finish

Full on malt bomb here, a lovely one at that. Seriously this is a really good brew and puts most US brewed Doppelbocks to shame.

Pours a dark brown color. Despite A relatively aggressive pour the head didn't develop much, it stood 1/4 inch at its tallest. Retention is disappointing. I can see carbonation rising in my glass. Smell is of sweet dark malts, raisins, dark fruit. Taste touches on the dark fruit in the middle of the tongue. I also get sort of a citrus and chocolate taste toward the back of the tongue. Body is of appropriate thickness with good carbonation. Sadly, sort of a letdown. I've had other doppelbocks that have been significantly better at a similar price point.
