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.

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 I’ve sampled. It probably won’t 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 can’t 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.

Bottle from Breeze Thru cellar aged over 3 years. Pours a coppery brown with almost no head. Rotation builds up a quickly disappearing off-white one that leaves no lacing. Aroma has super sweet caramel, rich grapes, peat and some fruit. Taste is of sweet caramel malt, bread, and sweet and tart fruits. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly and a bit tart with some yeastiness. Nice solid dopple. Would expect the aging hurt it a bit; oversweetening it.

Capital Autumnal Fire, aged 3 years 7 months in my beer cellar, 7.8% ABV A 12oz bottle and poured into a Capital Brewery Snifter. Appearance: Poured ruby brown with a very little head and lacing. Smell: Toasted malt and caramel notes, no pronounced hop presence, no obvious off flavors. Taste: Dried fruit and cognac sweetness. A molasses finish lingers. There is also a slight aftertaste of old leather, but not unpleasant. Mouth feel: Medium body and low carbonation, coating the back of the tongue and upper palette with black licorice. Also a nice warming alcohol finish. Overall: Capital was the first American craft breweries to combine the Oktoberfest and Doppelbock styles into one amazingly drinkable strong beer. The cellar aging has brought forward the more bitter flavors to balance with strong sweetness of the young beer. This is a great cognac-like after diner beverage to enjoy by an open fire with a maduro leaf cigar.
