2nd generation. This one has a new brew added to it Jacked Maibock. Dark amber, white head that leaves quick. Smells like a string malty brew. Tastes like a thick dobblebock, hints of rum, syrup, loads of malt and dark fruit. Has a nice thick syrup feel at first but finishes clean and crisp.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper gold with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is caramel malt and honey. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and brown sugar with sweet finish. Easy to drink, a very good doppelbock from Capital.

The aroma was sweet with vanilla and aged caramel, dry, yeasty undertones.. very well done for the style. Toffee, and vanilla at the core, with dry white peppery and yeasties around and throughout.. very nice earthy hop accents on the finish.

12 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! Pours a clear, bright amber-red-orange color with a small off-white head. Super sweet aroma, with notes of toasted sugar, dried fruits, cookie, and toffee, with maybe a hint of spiciness. Flavor of sweet and caramel malts, sugar, red apple, nuts, and a bitter booziness throughout. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not sure what to make of this one. Maybe let it sit for a while? I don’t know.

Given how delicious Autumnal Fire is, I was somewhat disappointed by this one. Very good, but not as good as the original.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium orange amber, quite hazy, with a white head that settles quickly into a flat thin skim. Nice malty aroma and flavours: caramel, breadcrusts, dark cherries. Chewy malts, sweet and lipsmacking good! A delicious doppelbock!

Overall another great example of dopplebock with mild to little bittering and no hop flavor. Something of a unique tale that they will be using half of the brewed batch in future annual releases. This is something of a nice malty sweetness that is candy to the beer drinker.
