Pour is a clear brown with a large white head. Aroma is a spicy dark fruit with a sweet molasses malt. Flavor is more molasses and dark fruit with a bit of sugar and a bready fig newton. Finish is more sweet dark fruit with a bit of spice. This is a fine doppelbock. A little sweeter than those made in Germany but still this follows all the guidelines.

The nose is a big malty, bready and mild fruit collaboration. Pours a clear brown color - reminding me of watery coffee. The head is thin and dissipates quickly. The flavor is also very malty with a little sweet. I taste dark bread, cocoa, ripe fruits and earth. It's not a typical dopplebock since it's a lager. It lighter and much more approachable but also less complex and chewy.

I think our bottle was 9.2%, which ironically was the beers only real fault. Too heavy and a little too alcoholic, otherwise would be a very good liquid bread in a bottle. Rich and doughy. Loved the nose. A tiny bit lower on the taste. Oddly got cinnamon at room temp though I know there is none. Would not hesitate to buy this again."

A nice if not particularly interesting doppelbock. Pours a great deep amber with a white head. Smells malty. Taste is malty, crisp, with a nice smooth finish. Not too memorable though.

SLC bottle. Pours a cola-like dark brown with a foamy, bubbly off white head. Nice earthy malt aroma with a faint hint of baking chocolate. Flavor has a little spice, a little booze and some bready thickness. Nice.
