DATE TASTED: December 17, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Schnieder Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: watching the Cavs, but already celebrating the kitchen victory--barbecue and beer/beef/potato turnovers, laced with the doppelbock I am currently rating, for tomorrow’s holiday luncheon.. APPEARANCE: beautiful copper brown body that allows some daylight through; head is off-white, clinging in banking clouds; base stays at a strong half-finger... AROMA: caramel malts front and center, with deep chocolate overtones...malts are slightly toasted as well, with some toffee and sweetness... PALATE: medium to full-bodied, demonstratively weighty at the throat and warming at the tongue; average carbonation; creamy with a reasonable finish... TASTE: as the scent suggests, chocolate and toasted malts akin to caramel, making for a winter warmer of a different persuasion than the usual uber-brown or extra-alcoholic ale; chocolate at the finish as well--a singular, effective profile... OVERALL: the beer I took to Tom’s beer fest was confirmed as a find by a friend who visited Iceland and sang its praises...this beer is a great winter companion (fantastic label, too), with strength and a flavor profile that compliments a relaxing night...

12 FL OZ ($10 6 pack) this was pretty decent . I’m a fan of doppelbocks so I knew what I was getting into. very well rounded and looked as good as it tasted. good selection of hops here.
