Black color & full bodied. Complex dark malt flavors blended with fruity & spicy weizen yeast notes. The name was born from a highly evolved literary conversation; then a beer was formulated "to do it justice. Prepare to be crushed by deliciousness!"

Keg @ Capital Ale House, H’burg. Chocolate chip banana bread. Roast, a hint of coffee. Raisin bread. Similar flavor. Strong caramelized banana. Clove. Raisin and some coffee. Ok, but sort of all over the place.

Draft in Harrisonburg. Darl clear maroon color, brown edge head. Aroma of bitter toast. Taste has dark fruit, coffee, cocoa. Odd but tasty enough.

Drake (11432) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of toffee, raisin and a faint smokiness. The taste is toffee, raisin, banana and a mildly hoppy finish. Body is a bit thin for a doppelbock, but it turns out to be really refreshing. Nice beer.
