A: A medium copper with great clarity. The light tan head dissipates to a thin collar having a rocky texture.

S: A rich, moderately-strong malt aroma with moderately-low melanoidins. There is a slight caramel note and a moderately-soft alcohol aroma. Light cocoa and dark fruit aromas of figs and plums become evident as it warms.

T: A rich malt flavor with moderately-strong melanoidins, light caramel and chocolate. Moderate hops bitterness that is a bit strong for style but very enjoyable. There is an underling malt sweetness throughout with a balance that is slightly sweet. The finish is somewhat sweet with an aftertaste of hops bitterness and slightly grainy malt.

M: A medium-full body with moderate carbonation and a slight warmth in the back of the throat. Sliky smooth with a light creaminess and a very faint astringency.

O: A great beer to enjoy while warming up by a fire. Malt forward yet balanced and oh so drinkable. The hops bitterness is too strong for the style.

12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Dark ruby-brown with a small eggshell white head.

S - Plum, black berry, caramel, earthy hops.

T - Sweet bready malt, plum, black cherry, brown sugar, and earthy hops. Finish brings in some nuttiness, more dark fruit, and a light bitterness.

M - Medium-full body, smooth, a little sticky and chewy. Somewhat of a dry finish.

O - A really enjoyable dopplebock. A little sweet but there is some balance from the earthy hops.

Poured from a 12oz bottle intonanduvel glass

A: pours a nice deep tawny ruby with 1/4 of a finger of caramely looking head... A few stray spots of lacing...

S: sticky sweetness, caramel with a hint of brown sugar... Apples, sticky bread... Touch of alcohol, smells like a desert... The more the brew warms the stickier the aroma gets.

T: sweet malts and some grainy light breadyness. Apple, buttery vanilla/caramel, toffe, hint of cherry and plum, sugars... There is a touch of hold which holds it together... Reminds me of mad elf, minus all the Spicy Belgian yeast and some if the cherry flavor. Sweet but not overly so, nice balance.

M: heavy with a slight viscousness to it, medium carbonation gives it a bit of creamyness as well.

O: this is pretty tasty... It reminds me of mad elf, a very nice dopplebock,
I'd reccomend this to anyone who's a fan of the style.

Got this for a friend for Xmas, then decided to try it myself after enjoying a Mad Elf on two separate occasions (both at bars - once on tap, once in a bottle). Apparently Mad Elf basically flies off the shelves in the Greater Philly area.

A: Pours decently clearbut dark...reddish/copper, 1 finger head which dissipates quickly

S: Fruity, but not overwhelming like Magic Hat #9...plum/cherry/ possibly a mild strawberry with mild booze smell

T: Moderate, honey/roasted malt taste, fruits come in plum, cherry perhaps but not overwhelming the base. Malty for sure, very little hops come out here. Very very reminiscent of Mad Elf to me, albeit a much less "concentrated" version

M: Smooth, nice fullness, taste lingers pleasantly

O: Would definitely buy again, a very nice bock

Pours a deep brown to amber color. Decent head at pour but disappates to just around the rim quickly. No lacing. Smell is darker malts with maybe a hint of smokey. Taste is somewhat strong up front - again malt flavors. But then moves to a sweeter - caramel - yet still somewhat smokey on the finish. Nice body and smaller carbonation.

Served in a standard pint glass at a hotel bar waiting for my brothers bachelor party to start.

Appearance: the beer pours a clear mahogany color with a half finger of light tan head that fades to a ring around the glass.

Smell: sweet and malty with some dark fruit and cherries. I'm getting some brown sugar and molasses notes.

Taste: lots of bready malt with some caramel malt, cherries, and dark fruit notes. Sweetness dominates, but there is enough bitterness to balance things out. Just a bit nutty. The finish is bready and slightly malty.

Mouthfeel: the body is on the syrupy side with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: a nice bock to warm you on a cold day. I'd have more.
