Hand bottled by Jeff (aka TAR), thanks buddy! The brew has a deep brown hue with a creamy tan head, very good lace, and an oily film. The aroma has notes of roasted dark malts, caramel, licorice, prune, plum, light walnut, aromatic hops, and earthy yeast esters. The taste starts with a crisp and sharp bitterness. This is quickly followed by a roasty and chocolate malt tone which lingers forever. There is a fruity (prune mostly) , hint of coffee, and mild hop bitterness on the finish. Wonderfully complex flavors. The feel is medium to full-bodied with a oily and sticky nature. Crisp and mildly biting on the finish (mostly from the alcohol). A classy brew from a unique brewery. I like it and would say it is a must find.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2006 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a black color with a small white-tan head. The aroma was sweet molasses and nutty malt. The mouthfeel is thick. The flavor is sweet and has a strong roasted malt presence and a decent hop profile. The malt turns sour and bitter on the finish. Some bitter chocolate come out as it warms.

OK, so I hope this is in the right place, had this at bocktown today in monaca on tap but it just said Church Brew Works Doppel Bock. A darker beer. Not hazy. Smells just plain beery good and fresh. Fairly flat at first. Decent roasty taste for a doppel or a bock. Well behaved, probably one of the better bocks I’ve had, doppel er not. Easy yes again well behaved, friendly over all fer a dble! . Pretty good, fer sure. Hides its 8% well, U’d think it was more like 5.5%.

Draught @ Brewery: Fits commecial descroption to a T. Smelled malty and toasted. Dark brown, clear. Small, diminishing, creamy, tan head. Small lacing. Tasted malty, but well balanced. No hop flavors at all. Pretty easy to drink. A good brew, but too malty for this hophead.
