COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blazing rich beer, this is a doppelbock based on an Oktoberfest personality. Warm and intriguing, the perfect "Brandy Snifter" beer. Available September and October.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with an amber to copper hue, accompanied by a dense light tan head that sticks around for a bit.
Aroma: The aroma is how I like my doppelbocks, mildly fruity with big malts. I get a lot of sticky caramel and brown sugar with a fig fruitiness. The aroma is sweet and pleasant with good strength.
Taste: The flavor matches the aroma. The intro is big sweet malts that run through, becoming bigger by the finish. The finish becomes a blend of raisins and caramel, very enjoyable. The finish is quick though leaving a raisin and caramel afterthought.
Palate: Full-bodied, a sticky feel to it, with mild carbonation.
Overall: This is a good doppelbock, I have no complaints about it. The only reason Iím not enamored with this is that I feel Troegenator is ultimately a better beer.

Tap at RusTeak. Big amber caramel pour. Big malty sweet aroma with a hint of cherry. Big malt body, little hop bite with slight hint of cherry and warm bread. Big beer, but booze is hidden well. Good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Capital Autumnal Fire I had seems to be different from the one that everyone else had. I donít really get the excitement. The bottle on mine says 7.8% ABV, so maybe this one is different. Decent head on the amber pour, but not a lot of body. Aroma is fresh and malty. Taste is a generic malt with caramel notes and not a lot of hop character. Sugary aftertaste hangs on the palate. Autumnal Fire is ok but certainly not due the hype.

Ruby red pour--very interesting color for the style; off-white head. Nose is caramel, toffee, sweet malts. Taste is sweet sugary bready malts, brown sugar. Thin-medium mouthfeel.

10/17/13 trade from Jamil. What a great Doppelbock! Sweet malt, taffy and brown sugar scent. Dark bronze pour with a medium smooth feel. Sweet malt up front, rich and nutty, brown sugar and taffy finish with a hint of alcohol, but mostly all a great rich flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle--I'm liking the doublebocks. Amber color, the best definition of an amber color I say, brew with no head and like carbonation. Malty aroma with some caramel. Taste is malt, without roast and caramel. The finish is syrupy and sticky. No trace of alcohol. Wish I had a cellar! Total wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful, auburn colored body was clear, and the beer displayed little carbonation, and formed no head. The smell was a mixture of sour dark skinned fruits, caramel, cocoa and coffee. The taste was very fruity, brimming with flavors of cherries, and fig, as well as showing off some vanilla, toffee, and just a hint of chocolate. The body was thicker than medium dense, with sticky initial feel, and a dry finish. I believe this is the first beer from this brewery Iíve sampled. It probably wonít be the last, based on the quality of this one.

This is my favorite beer, period. No one can beat Capital Breweries Dopplebocks. My only complaint is that I canít get this in California!!!! But I did ship 4 cases with me when I moved!!!

Truly Unique. It is not for everyone but if you have the palate for it, it is amazing.
