Tap. Dark brown pour, with nice head. Very sweet, malty aroma. Thick body. Enjoyed this offering very much, nice and smooth throughout. I beleive this is the best product they’ve released.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
lucent copper, thin beige head, medium body, medium high co2.
aroma: sweet malt, bread.
T1= coffee, co2.
T2= leafy hop bitterness, astringent roast malt.
T3= herbal hop bitterness.
I wouldn’t really categorize this as a doppelbock, especially for being as hoppy as it is. Does not have that chicken coop flavor that almost all their other offerings have.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
aroma is excessively neutral. soft mouthfeel, low carb, nice head retention and good lacing. flavor is strong porter territory with light fudge coming to the table along with the standard malty nuttiness associated with the style. same note begins to translate to aroma as beer opens. attractive body is cloudy brown.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with copper edges and tan head. The aroma is syrupy sweet with cherry, roasted malts and molasses. The taste is smooth and sweet heading to syrupy with notes of cherries, malt roastiness and a robust level of syrupy sweet malts and a sense of molasses. Nice finish on this brew with lingering roastiness and fading syrupy sweetness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft... Clear copper lager with a large, frothy, white head. Sticky lacing. The nose is malty, a touch vinous and very mildly medicinal. Full-bodied with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel and lax carbonation. Sweet caramel and praline in the flavor. Also, hints at chocolate, but not a whole lot. Lengthy, bittersweet finish – bitterness is a bit metallic and lingers longer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer seemed strong near the end of my visit at the brewery. Cool label. Great friendly people working and visiting the place. This beer seemed medium bodied with a good amount of malt. I like this doppelbock.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample @ brewery taproom. Luminescent hazy not quite garnet color, no head. Sweet aroma has more fruity esters than the weiss, banana and some spice too. Soft carbonation, thick palate. A little burnt, for a DB especially. Lingering burnt finish dominates the flavors but is nicely dry and malty.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft @ brewery. Big hop nose, piney hops. Pours a caramelly amber color with a solid white head. Super hoppy? Actually better than the IPAs i tried at the brewery. Piney citrus hops with caramelly hops, a little low on the carbonation side.
