I think this is the first doppelbock I've had. Seemed like a cross between a brown ale and a belgian ale to me, probably because its a pretty sweet malty brown beer, beautiful color and head, also had a high alc. content that was hidden well but can't help but think it has a bit of a wine taste to it, not a common beer flavor.
I thought it was okay, a little too sweet, too much wine taste, too rich to want more than one.
A unique beer but wouldn't recommend it.

Not very aromatic but a pleasant pour appearance and a mild appealing flavor. I don’t get a bitter aftertaste as described here...I experience a lovely, light sweetness which I find to be extremely enjoyable and easy drinking. The carbonation level is near perfect to my preference also. Low volume, fast dissipating head with little to no lacing. Nice rusty brownish red color.
