Pours clear amber/brown with a small head fading quickly.

Fairly sweet aroma. Caramel and figs with a little graininess.

Sweet caramel again with figs, dates and plum. A bit on the lower end of the style for sweetness which is nice.

Medium carbonation levels and a chewy mouthfeel.

Solid dopplebock and probably better than the average, but nothing ground breaking. I enjoyed the lower malt sweetness level, but still not something I'd have more than one of.

a: This was a clear, dark brown color. It poured with a large, lightly sticky bone white cap.

s: Toasted grains, hints of fruit, light toffee, and just of touch of earthy hops.

t: Massively malty, dry and toasty though, not very sweet. I also found some toffee and fig-like fruit. The finish added light bitterness.

m: Medium body with just a little chalkiness.

o: An awesome dopplebock prduced close by at great price. This is a frequent purchase for me.

Wiki tells me that modern brewers add “-ator” to their beer names to signal the doppelbock style, with 200 registered in the German patent office. The more you know.

STYLE: Doppelbock

ABV: 8.2%

LOOK: Heavy amber and loose. The latter says “eh, I’m probably not worth it.” Pay it no heed.

NOSE: Ripe apple cider, red wine vinegar, figs, dark rum. Fall, vinous, and strong too.

MOUTH: I’m ready to be smacked upside the head – but no. It’s more delicate. If it were less well composed it would taste like one of those chucky hard ciders. It is cidery, in a good way, but it’s also fulsome, molasses and baked fruits. Don’t think I could drink more than a single pint in any one session. That would be cloying. But do try it. It will satisfy that soft, sweetlike craving.

A- Deep amber/caramel colored body. Deep color, but great transparency. Frothy, sticky tan head.

S- Caramel malts, bread, some sweetness almost in the form of a pastry.

T- Bready, malty body, caramel, hint of dark fruit, cherry cobbler.

M- Full bodied, incredibly smooth, low-medium carbonation.

O- Very hearty, full bodied bock. Good as a sipper of a desert beer.

Poured from 12oz brown bottle into pilsener glass. Deep red color with moderate fizzy head that doesn't stick around. Smell is malty, bread and some sweetness, perhaps apple. Taste is very sweet up front, dark fruits abound...finishes with a little drying pinch of something. Very drinkable, alcohol not noticeable at all. Mouthfeel is smooth, full yet a bit watery.

This beer is not bad. Very dark with lots of molasses aroma and taste. With a vigorous pour large head which dissipates very quickly and no lacing. A thick mouth feel that is drinkable but not is you don't like molasses which is not high on my list. Decent beer.
