look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - A fairly dark caramel brown with just a 1/4 inch of head that reduces to just a mild sticky lace ring.

S - Smells of mostly caramel and raisin with mild fruity notes not bad.

T - A very tasty dopplebock with zippy caramel, raisin, and plum taste. I don't get much baked rum bread flavor so this is just and average entry to the style.

M - Medium kind of chewy pretty close to on style.

Overall I like this beer but not only can I not get it again but I find better styles of it.

Deep brown orange color, basic carbonation, malt, raspberry, and chocolate on the nose, fruity start, nice malty mid pallet, some yeast towards the finish, as well some of the fruitiness is on the finish as well.

Overall; Drinkable dopplebock, not as heavy as most, but a good brew.
