This is a dopplebock high-gravity lager. This one is big, black and sweet. It’s malty character is derived from two caramel malts along with Munich malt to create the smoothest high-gravity beer this side of the pond.

a smooth double bock that has almost no bite at the end. it enters sweet and finishes with a nice smooth flavor. for as strong as it is, you would think that you aren’t even drinking beer. nice black color and a rich aroma that leads you to believe you are going to drink something like licorice. when you finally take a sip of this beer, the initial taste will blow you away. when you’ve finished the bottle, its a nice little surprise.

Aroma is soft chocolates, not invasive at all but is very breathable, not smothering you with any single aroma. Flavor is mild chocolates, with a little bit of cherry, average malts, and a fairly bitter finish. Nevertheless, a good job for the guys, and girls, at Atwater.

Bottle... Clear, almost black lager with a ruby hue when held up to bright light. Small, creamy, khaki head with decent retention. The nose is of port wine, chocolate and cherries. Sweet, chocolaty and fruity flavor (black cherries). Full-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes sweet, fruity and chocolaty. Kudos to artusory for sharing the bottle!

Very nicely brewed doppelbock. Rich sweet roasted caramel malts...very little detectable hops. The sweet roasted caramel malt is predominant in both aroma and flavor. Some sweet dried fruits (dates/raisins/plums) in the undertones. Deceptively well hidden ABV creeps up on you when you’re not looking. Quite a nice surprise from these guys and a most welcome bump up in quality!

UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 This is easily the best beer that I have had from this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with ruby highlights and a medium sized dark brown head. The aroma is tangy and malty with an undertone of molasses. The flavor is faintly bitter and rather malt with a rich chocolate and molasses element and a floral hop presence. The finish is tangy and hoppy. The alcohol is well hidden. Nice.
