A: Pours a deep ruby color with a fingers worth of head that reduces to a cap within a minute

S: Spicy yeast, dark fruits, and bready malts all stand out quite a bit, with some earthy hops in the background

T: Follows the nose. Starts out with a light yeasty spiciness and dark fruits such as figs, raisins, and cherries. Goes into a deep bready maltiness that lingers into the finish. The spiciness kicks back up in the finish to go with the maltiness

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy

O: A solid American doppelbock with plenty of depth and complexity. Very warming and nourishing with the 8.2%. Enjoyable

The beer is dark plum to amber in color with an inch of beige head. Audible fizzing. The aroma brings lager yeast, dark fruit, plums, toffee, caramels. Sweetness that was present in the aroma carries into the flavor. Lingering sweet toffee chews, candy. Hints of brown bread. Malty throughout. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. With Ayinger Celebrator sitting around on shelves at most decent beer stores, it's hard to choose another doppelbock. Still, this is worth a visit.

Poured down the middle into a Guinness pint glass.

Clear dark brown with 2 finger thick, foamy, solid head. Settled to a thin coating after a couple minutes. A thin layer of foam remains until the end of the glass.

Smells of good, robust, dark bread. Yeast and prunes or raisins. My nose is slightly stuffy tonight so I might not detect the subtleties.

Taste has a complex blend of sweet dark fruits and heavy, dark bread up front. Slight hops on the back end. Carbonation really enhances the finish. 8.2% alcohol is not noticeable, a sign of a well balanced beer. Delicious aftertaste. Flavor of bread lasts a long time.

Smooth, medium body with lots of sparkle from the bubbles. Flavors involve the whole tongue. Feel and flavor last a long time. Great beer to enjoy slowly.

Delicious, complex, smooth, drinkable beer. Begs for a leather couch in a dark wood lined room in front of a toasty fireplace on a winters evening. Excellent of you like a less bitter, hoppy brew.
