Look is a nice dark red with a tan head. Bready, malted and beery smell. Maybe a bit grassy. Head almost gone before first taste. Taste is very pleasant with a slightly sweet bready flavor, maybe some fruits, with a slight bitterness and alcohol on the end. Alcohol sticks with you a bit on the flavor along with the slightest tinge of offsetting bitterness. Slightly less carbonated and dry. Decent for the style.

500th review!

Pours clear and crisp, dark auburn in color. Tannish off-white head dissipates steadily leaving a ring of tan foam along the outside of the beer.

Smell is bready with some dark stone fruits, overly ripe apples and grapes, and slightly sweet.

Taste follows the nose with a solid bready malt backbone that is immediately apparent. Stone fruits, ripe apples, and red grapes. There is a sweetness from the fruits but its not overly sweet. Slight hoppy bitterness on the finish that just provides some balance to the beer. The flavor profile on this beer is incredibly well done.

Feel is smooth, light, drinkable. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

Overall this might be the best American made dopplebock. Incredible flavor, and an outstanding beer overall.

12 oz bottle.

Stunning ruby brown color and clear with a small, light tan head that shows good retention. Sticky patches of lacing as it goes down. Heavy malt aroma and flavor comprised of molasses, raisin, caramel, and alcohol. Light earthy hops chime in behind the malt to round things out. Heavy sweetness in the finish creates a long aftertaste. Full bodied and clean, but drifts a little too much towards the syrupy texture side of things for my liking. A solid dopplebock that is great for winter nights.

16 oz. Can.

A deep brown/red hued and amber color. A short, bubbly, fine and thin tannish colored foam cap. A fine layer sticks around.

Mega sweet malty aroma, toffee, milk chocolate and raspberries, fine leather shoes, bourbon casks i.e old antique furniture, basically, thick, heady dark malts. Earthy, wet-leaves and dry soil for the hops.

A sweet and sour malt bomb. Thick and maple syrup sweet, maple syrup because of the subtle woody, grainy backdrop. Not at all malty thick or heavy lime a stout, no roasty-chocolate, more, sweet syrup, amber malt flavor. Complex and deep with more subtle, woody, earthy and sour hops. The deep lager bock yeast adds the big, funky sour, tangy flavor's, which all come together in the classic German Bock style.

The feel is of a full, lush body mouthfeel, clean, not "crisp" but very clean. A long, woody, cloying malt ends it.

Overall, A massive Bock, a fine American version of this classic German masterpiece.
