Der Hirsch Doppel-Hirsch | 0.5L Bottle | Bottle Date Unknown

Appearance - Beautiful garnet, creamy off white head

Aroma - Raisins, figs, coffee cake

Mouthfeel - Very light carbonation, would have liked a little more, medium bodied

Taste - Dark fruit... Raisins and plums up front followed by chocolate covered caramel.

Residual - sweetness lingers, really could've used more carbonation

Overall - Great doppelbock, would recommend to anyone... My only gripe is that it's somewhat flat

Murky reddish-purple in body with thin white head. Aroma of grapes, medicine cabinet, herbal notes, and alcohol. Tastes of grapes, herbal potion, dark fruit, and an alcoholic burn comes through towards the finish along with some more medicinal flavor. Light in body with light carbonation. Crisp and rather dry for the flavors presented.
