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

The beer is a copper dark brown with a foamy finger head.

The aroma has caramel, sweet roasted malt, and a spiciness of nutmeg and cinnamon.

The flavor is quite lovely. The beer has big malts and caramel sweetness. It then lingers to that signature doppelbock stiffness in flavor with whole wheat breadiness. It has a round mouthfeel.

The finish has a bit of a nutty aftertaste that I really got a lot of from Paulaner Salvator. However, this has more aroma, rounded flavor, and sweet caramel malt. It’s quite decent. The aftertaste is a bit of an issue for me.

Growler poured on 2013 vintage, poured into a Rustico Novemberfest mug, drank 4/26/13 over approximately one hour.

A: 4.5 - dark brown coloration, moderate clarity (can even read through, which was surprising), slight white head dissipates into subtle glass lacing, minimal alcohol legs

S: 4 - sweet, sweet notes...lots of candy, toffee, caramel

T: 3.5 - right of the bat is an intense sweetness, cloying sweetness...I can't really get into it on first bite; on the back end, however, there is a biscuity/bready maltness with laget yeast toastiness that dries it out somewhat...but still too sweet!

M: 3.5 - full-bodied, boozy and really sticky; little-to-low carbonation (may just be the growler was open for a bit too long though)

O: 3.75 - dopplebocks were one of the cross-over styles to craft beer for me, especially Spaten Optimator and Hooker's Liberator; as you can gather from the above, this one is particularly malty and sweet, and maybe I've grown out of this need for jolly rancher beers; however, there are redeeming qualities to this beer that pull it out of the candy house like it back-end bready malt character and lager yeast flavors
