A hazy dark amber beer with a small amber head. The aroma is dusty combined with notes of caramel and light notes of alcohol and fruit. The flavor is sweet alcohol with strong notes of caramel as well as hints of metal, probably stemming from the alcohol.

Dark copper body with foamy off white head. Fruity sweet grainy malt aroma. Dried fruit, cereal and vanilla. Taste is similarly sweet, dried fruit with a touch of cola. Doppelbocks are often very sweet, I’ve had a few that were too sweet, and this one reaches close to that level without crossing the line. nice beer.

CBAC Day 21: A pretty decent winter beer, but overly heavy on a few notes. Getting a TON of malt and caramel flavours, and then almost as an afterthought maybe some dark fruits and brown sugar - but not a lot.
