Poured from a growler into pint glass Appearance: A nice rusty red color with a low riding head Smell: Nice sweet smell, some caramelized sugar smell Taste: sweet, with a sorta caramel/brown sugar taste associated with it and some other malt flavors. Mouthfeel: relatively smooth, with no overpowering alcohol flavor. Goes down very easily. Overall: While a little lacking on a real potent flavor savored in some dopplebocks a good brew non the less.

Darker brown with a sweet aroma of raisin, dark bread, brown sugar, and light spice. Flavor is big and sugary with lots of brown sugar, plums, raisins, and assorted dark fruits with more hops than usual for a Doppelbock. Good stuff.
