Aroma of malt, caramel, lots of chocolate, some dark fruit, raisins. Flavour is medium sweet with a pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite well-balanced, I love that the sweetness is so restrained compared to most uber-sweet Bocks. Like the other Christoffel beers, they realise the value of bittering hops. My kind of Bock.

We chugged somewhere between 2 and 6 kegs of this from Jakebraís famous draught system, details get hazy but strong palates like mine remember everything about how she tastes mydude.

Pours a deep mahogany, hazy with a small head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is sweet, rich, & sort of earthy in a woodsy kind of way. Itís got some cherry & some molasses. Itís unmistakably Doppelbocky.

The flavor is rich and fruity with some dusty malt. Itís sweet but not as much so as the aroma had me thinking it would be but it sure has some of that dark caramel thing happening. Itís got some cherry, some woodiness, and some nice earthy hops.

I donít know, itís nice beer, maybe not my "thing" but itís certainly enjoyable.
