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.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2004 Pours the color of fallen leaves, a deep copper ruby. The smell is caramelly sweet and has hints of Belgian yeast. The body is rich and syrupy, heavy on malts and pleasantly well-hopped. Finish is malty, warm and inviting for more. You gotta love a brewery that has a doppelbock for every season.

Itís not like any doppelbock Iíve had. Pretty tasty--slightly fruity. It does have a slight off note, however.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 Pours a clear copper topped by a small off white head. Aroma is medium sweet with caramel, cherry, bread and light earth. Flavor is caramel, raisin and some cherry. Medium body, sticky texture. A very aromatic Dopple.

Pours the kinda brilliant copper color you see in the leaves at autumn. Little head disappears quickly.Big sweet malty nose.Lush full palate slides across the tongue. Malty sweetness is just rolling around the mouth. Hinting at something like maple syrup? This is delicious and the perfect beer for fall in my opinion. Thanks to maxpower for this one!

Whoa goodness. How smooth can this be?! A wonderful interpretation of a doppelbok. A very floral aroma with a massive amount of malts. I think this beer would be enjoyed by even the newest of beer drinkers.

clear reddish/brownish color, with very minimal carbonation and a slight head quickly dissipating to a thin lens. aroma is pretty malty with some bready, moderately sweet flavors. somewhere in the aroma, i detect a little hint of magic marker..ha.not that i ever sniff those.
