Deep brown in color with a creamy off white head. Aroma is malty, with caramel, vanilla, yeast, raisins and some other sweet fruits. Flavor is much of the same. Caramel, and malts are at the forefront. The raisn notes showed up in the flavor as well. Finishes with a little bit alcohol. A very respectable dopplebock.

A very nice and smooth doppel. A touch of caramel blended with some chicory. Not quite the Church Brew Works Doppel but still a wonderful beverage.

Not labeled as decimator, just the ellicott mills dopplebock (on tap at RFD tasting). Quite dark, but not opaque. Roasty aroma followed by smooth, very caramelized flavor. Decoction mashing is apparent.
