They just started carrying this one. This one is strong on the malt and caramel. You can smell and taste the alcohol content. Definitely a sipping beer and I don’t think I could have too many of them at one sitting.

12oz bottle from The Liquor Shop in Tyngsborro, Mass. Pours a translucent copper body with a short-lived off-white head. Smells malty, with caramel and toffee. Tastes malty too, with toffee and caramel dominating, but hints of chocolate, nut, and coffee also persist. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Fairly drinkable for the style. An excellent dopplebock. True to style, tasty, drinkable. No complaints.

As I poured it out of the bottle, it came out in a nice, brown, translucent color. There was also a slightly red tint to it. After the pour it formed a nice, off-white head that settled very quickly. Taking a whiff, there was a pretty sweet, almost fruity, aroma with a dash of hops. In my first sip, I got a nice, smooth, malty taste. It was followed by a nice hint of fruit and sweetness and it finished up with a nice kick at the end from the barley and the alcohol (9.5% is hard to mask). The texture, I thought, was fantastic. It was very filling - almost like bread. And the entire experience was very smooth. It has a smooth opening and an interesting bite at the end to finish it off.

Poured from the tap into a tasting glass. The color is a dark brownish-amber with a small white head. The smell is subtle malts nutty brown sugar flavor. The taste is it strong, has some nice malty flavors but is full of some nice caramel and bready flavor. This is a beer with some kick but also with some great well balanced flavor as well. Nice rich moutfeel and enjoyable drinkability. A well made beer.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2011 12oz bottle. One-finger head that lingers atop yet five minutes later with comparable and complimentary lacing. The aroma is impressively very roasty recalling chocolate coffee in a metal pot but mostly coffee in a metal pot. That’s definitely better than it sounds. The appearance is a beautiful, amber lava, seriously red and glowing appealingly. The taste is a little bitter and salty and a little sweet. And a little meaty carrying the nose most excellently. The palate is full body with perfectly lively carbonation and a satisfying finish.

A deep amber-brown pour with a fluffy, tan head. The aroma is full of caramel and bread along with some faint licorice. The full body has a thick and creamy texture with average carbonation. The taste is sweet throughout with just a hint of alcohol in the finish.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Aroma is of dark chocolate with a light lactose, creamy aspect. The full pour brings out a lot of sweetness. The taste matches with unabashed but well balanced sweetness. Pour is a vibrant red with brown tint and a thin coating of fizzy head.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Color is a rich amber with good carbonation and a tight off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet and rich. Starting with a bold medium body it goes down with a rich feel. Finish comes in sweet with flavors chocolate covered raisins a little caramel and a coffee like bitterness. After taste rolls off smooth with a hint of smoke and a warm alcohol feel. This is a great Doppelbock and as it warms up a bit the flavors melt together and become more complex.

Pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma has hints of coffee and sweet malty goodness. Flavor is much sweeter than I expected. Oh wow. Definite coffee notes. Sweet and bitter and cream and delicious. This is fantastic.
