Dark dark dark. Sharp and prickly up front. Lots of roast and licorice accompanied by slight dark fruits. The sharp roastyness made it seem more than 25 IBU's.

A nice potent doppelbock.
dark nearly opaque brown color with no head. nutty , tofee aroma. very malty with a sweet caramel taste. the underhopped nature of this beer really emphasises the malt. very drinkable for an 8% ABV beer. A great winter drink.
