This was a solid dopplebock. There were plenty of flavorful pecan undertones among bready notes and soft, dark chocolate. It could use a little bit of age though; given the style, it was on the dry side.

Brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is straight up pecan pie: pecans, vanilla, even slight pie crust notes. Flavor is very similar. It is amazing that they were able to match the flavor up so well with this one. Great beer, absolutely spot on with the flavor and awesome concept!

Tasty, tasty, tasty. Pecan and vanilla come out great and there is a nice alcohol taste that hits the pallet. Must try.

Dark amber and vanilla is very strong. Nice sweet pecan vanilla aroma, and I like that it isn’t a chocolate imperial (as I expected.) A sweet desert beer nonetheless.

Thanks, Andrew, for the share. Nose is pie crust, walnuts, chocolate, vanilla. Flavor is big graham cracker and walnuts with a chocolate/vanilla sweetness. Pretty enjoyable.

For the style, it’s not beautiful. For the flavor, it’s great. Plenty of sweet nuttiness, caramel and chocolate. Keep it coming. Killer but not for a typical dopplebock, however it’s still good.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Armin. Thanks ma!. Pour is deep brown with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Grainy, lightly chocolatey, bready, caramelly, toffee, roasty, somewhat grainy, and sweet malty aroma. Taste is husky, vanilla, caramel, grainy, somewhat nutty, tart, dark fruity, and soy sauce. Creamy body with soft carbonation. Really different beer.
