Nice brown bubbly clear look with tannish billowy head 3 fingers high. Retention and lacing are minimal. Caramel and biscuit notes. Mild hint of spice an occasional banana. Bit of a boozy hit, but well balanced and tasty.

Pouring from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass, this beer pours out a perfectly clear, Amber/copper color. It forms a thin, khaki colored crown. No lacing left at all, but I like the clarity.

The nose brings huge amount of toasted sweetness layers of caramel and toffee. Some dark, dried fruit as well, like cherries. Some sweet dark bread.

The taste comes in being a little sharp. Kind of acidic, floral fruit. The alcohol is definitely in there, not hiding. The toasted notes are still in there of some caramel and toffee.

Overall, it’s a nice doppelbock. I like the toasted notes and sweetness, but I feel the sharpness could be toned back. If this cleaned up and smoothed out some edges to finish a little cleaner, it could be a great drink.

I hoped for better, I have now tried about 10 different doppelbock beers since discovering my love for them and I just wasnt impressed by this one. Initially when I first took a sip I thought I was going to like it quite a bit since the initial taste was sweet and malty but it has a hops aftertaste that I just didn't expect from a doppelbock. I cant stand IPA and generally I find doppelbock beers to be the complete opposite when it comes to flavor. For me the bitter after taste just rewened an otherwise good beer. Although I don't much care about the color I did notice it had a slightly lighter color than its competitors. Smell was decent but didnt really stand out.

4.33/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: Clear, dark, reddish brown with a small, cream-brown head. Minimal lacing.
Smell: Caramel, prunes, dark fruit, brown sugar, dark chocolate, cherry. Smells like a delicious dessert.
Taste: Caramel, cherry, chocolate, some raspberry. Wonderfully balanced, heavy malt flavor.
Feel: Thick, mouth-coating, decadent. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: This might be one of my new favorite dark beers. Very tasty and very drinkable even with the heavy malt flavor and high ABV.

From the can, it pours a clear amber with a modest head, soon diminishing to a thin layer. Caramel malt in the nose and caramel malt in the mouth. Nice!

Nice dark bronze almost reddish tint, you have to give it a good sniff to pick up the notes of caramel, it is a delicious beer with a tiny bit of lingering bitterness but didn't pick up on the caramel and chocolate, nice full body

Two 12 oz cans bb 4/23/19 poured into a tall mug at fridge temp 8.2% ABV 25 IBU. The beer pours bright light bronze with chestnut highlights and a little khaki head. The head recedes to a thin film and ring. The aroma is toffee, brown sugar and subtle smoke. The taste is semisweet caramel toffee malt with savory undertones and a medium bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with just less than medium carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall, very good. This beer lacks the complexity of some German examples, but can be had fresh and affordable, providing you live in their distribution area.
