Tap at churchkey in DC. Dark copper plum with thick off white head. Dark fruit nose. Malty. Malty sweet and tangy grain. Slight caramel taste. Otherwise the malty grain dominates. Dark fruit is low in the taste. Finish is ok. Medium body. I wanted more layers and depth, but decent.

Quite impressive in aroma and taste: quite similar to Schlenkerla’s products, but without the bitterness added from the smoked malts. Strong lager with quite unique presence of malts and sweetness... overall, pretty good doppelbock.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml btl. No apparent code date. Appearance: Deep brown and clear, with a beautiful deep ruby red and a moderate khaki head.
Aroma: Strong dark fruit character of raisin, fig, and plum
Taste: Rich bready, toasty maltiness with caramel and roast. Strong dark fruit flavor continues, predominantly raisin and fig. Fruit has a slightly spicy feel. Bitterness just strong enough to counter the rich malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body with a moderate carbonation. Alcohol strength well hidden.
Finish: Toasted bread and dark fruit linger long after.
Overall: Top notch Doppelbock. Complex malt character of bread, toast, caramel and a slight touch of roast. Raisin and fig fruit character stays strong on the nose and continues through the taste and finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Deep mahogany color, large bubbles head diminishes quickly , fizzy bubbles.
Herbs, sour (just right amount of sour) dried fruits, raisin, some smoke on exhale, mouthful, semi sweet.
I find this combination of gas and sour common in many German beers.
Not my kind of beer, it has too heavy smell for me (hits sinuses), but for those who like malty nut brown ales, may be a real treat.
