Lately for whatever reason I've decided that Thursdays are good days for trying new brews, and today is no different. And in this case I'm trying an unfamiliar style. Let's see how it goes.

Poured this into a Sierra Nevada balloon glass - nice looking clear brown with plenty of carbonation and a quarter inch of fizzy head.

Very strong malt aroma, similar to a marzen. Nice flavor..malt at the forefront but I also detected a "buttery caramel" taste at the finish with mild bitterness. Perhaps a hint of toffee as well. I expected a heavier feel to it but not the case here - medium-bodied, smooth. The 8.2% abv is fairly well hidden here.

Delicious. I need to explore this style more. Need a break from IPAs.

Poured a 12 oz bottle into a frosted mug.

Appearance--This beer has a very caramel color; a deep but translucent red-brown. There was just the slightest bit of head and no real lacing.

Smell--A pleasant but unremarkable aroma--slightly sweet and bread-y.

Palate--This beer's weak point. While smooth and very drinkable it's akin to water. There's not much body. For a beer of this color I'd have thought it was fuller bodied.

Taste--Crisp and slightly tart. A mixture of bread and lemon rind. Despite it's relatively high ABV the alcohol is not overbearing. Very drinkable.

Overall I really enjoyed it. I've got 5 more of them in the fridge and I'm looking forward to getting through 'em.

12 Oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- A clear but very deep amber colored beer. Not much head to speak of but a surprising amount of alcohol legs.

S- Caramel and toffee. Some dark fruits, raisins in particular. A slight spice.

T- The first thing I notice is a very sugary sweet caramel flavor. Almost taste like dark malt extract for any homebrewers out there. There is a very sugary dark fruit flavor, a ton of raisin and plum in this beer. A slight roastedness and herbal notes.

M- A thick and syrupy beer, somewhat high in carbonation. Doesnt coat the mouth or have any lingering flavors.

O- This is a solid Doppelbock, nuff said.
