3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This dark amber beer comes with a small but fairly durable head that leaves a little splotchy lacing. Very good clarity.
The flavor profile is a bit unusual for style, probably due to the use of "domestic Perle hops", but I found only a little harm in this.
Medium body with good, medium carbonation. Smooth.
O: Interesting version of this style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A growler from the brewpub, served in a dimpled mug. Pours a deep copper with red hints and a small, tan head that quickly fades. Decent lacing. Heavy carmel malt aroma with subtle hints of coffee. Full, creamy mouthfeel with slightly more effervescence than is typical of the style. Sweet, malty flavor, but without much depth or complexity. Nonetheless, a decent representative doppelbock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at the brewpub. Poured dark brown color with a creamy light brown head that was mostky lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Solid sweet malty toasted flavor with an average smooth finish of short duration. My expectations where met.
