Deep dark brown with thin beige head. Aroma is coffee and burnt toast. Taste is nice and bitter (not hop bitter, but roast grain bitter) and leaves a nice stinging aftertaste. This is nice winter time beer, tasty and warming.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deeply plummy and rasiny malt, a little earthen smoke and grape sweetness. Ruby-copper body with plenty of carb, head is a sudsy beige-tan. Taste is sweet with lower, later bitterness, sugary grape leading off before the earth and roast occupy the back end. And just a touch of fruit-favoring tang, with orange peel and light cherry spiking in a Belgian note. Creamy, lightly oily full body. It’s on the wrong side of too-sweet , but an enjoyable Doppelbock and, in light of how well it hides its alcohol (extremely well), a dangerous one.
