Pours a dark brown, ruby. Medium carbonation. Some dark fruit and candy on the nose and taste is much the same with some malt and sweetness. Not too cloying but definately sweet with a candy thing going on, maybe some smoke or roast in the background. Enjoyable but the classic examples of the style keep the crown.

Look: A rich black body with an off white head that quickly dissipated.

Smell: An overwhelming sense of alcohol and I enjoyed this smell. But as soon as the beer first touched my taste buds I could also smell notes of cherries with the initial copious amount of alcohol.

Taste: I detected primarily cherries up front and then it ended with a smokey after taste.

Feeling: A smooth drink that went down quickly without a kick of the alcohol percents.

Overall: Very enjoyable beer that I bumped into by chance.

A little bit of a sour nose on this, but all else is pure doppelbock. Dark and rich,roast grains at the forefront. Small beige head, better as it warms.

This beer poured a dark amber color with an off-white head that was less than a finger-width thick. The head disapated quickly.

The aroma has a strong carmel scent with a hint of chocolate.

The initial taste is sweet with less Carmel than I expected. In the middle the chocolate notes come through. At the end, there was a bitter somewhat hoppy taste, and a bit of smokiness.

The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with less than expected carbonation.

Overall this was a decent dopple bock, but it was a bit thin for my liking.

Lively carbonation, but not much of a head. Spicy character, estery. Sweet too. Maltiness comes through fairly strong as well, somewhat toasty.
