Pour is a dark red-brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is a nice caramel malt with plenty of dark fruit and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is a really nice dark fruit. Lots of sugar plumbs, raisons and a dark toffee coating. This was a pretty flavorful doppelbock and pretty spot on for the style.

never get excited out the bock region, but i’ll give it a fair shake .. . tan, mild foam .. . light molasses and toffee ... a decent bock but a bit simplified .. . . I was watching you while you slept. You look pretty stupid.

Great winter bock beer. Nice head in the pour. Darker beer, but not pitch black and intimidating to some.
Very smooth and flavorful. Taste lingers for a while... in a good way.
Very malty and not bitter at all.
