Smells like caramel extract. Light brown. Somewhat hot but balanced with the malt. Ok.

I had this at the Taproom. Pours black with a tan head. Taste chocolate, malt, smokey. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

3-22-2014 Deep black in color with a low head and very clean. Nose has a light nuttiness too it with some light chocolate, mild raisin and dark fruit sweetness. Flavor is strong of malt, strong raisin, light coca nib chocolate late and a light nutty finish. Body is thick, low amount of carbonation and a slightly sticky feeling to it. OVerall a good brew but strong sweetness from the raisin.

Sampled on tap at the 2012 Schlafly Hop In The City festival. It poured a clear, medium reddish-brown color with lasting beige foam and some lace. 100% true-to-style Doppelbock aromas and flavors. Malty, great marshmallowy pils sweetness, balanced by tangy, peppery noble hops. Well-balanced and very drinkable despite the higher alcohol. Medium body and carbonation, faint but pleasant caramelly aftertaste. Nicely done.

Sampled at the 2012 Heritage Festival. It poured a dark amber color with a white head. The aroma was of bread, coffee and some alcohol. The taste was of coffee and toast with a hint of alcohol. A very tasty Doppelbock.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby-brown and clear with a nice head and good lacing. Powerfully and overwhelmingly malty!! Smells great! Very tasty too, with a blast of sweet, toasty, extra-smooth caramel malts, plus light fruits and a touch of light brown sugar. Hops were not a major factor. Body was good but a bit light for the style, but incredibly drinkable and high on deliciousness! Surely try this one if you’re at the taproom.

On tap at bottleworks. Malt, malt, malt......Clear mahogany with no head -- is that from the alcohol or a mistake? Chewy yeast and malt lingers on the palate with slight spice and a dry finish. very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Bottleworks after Cranksgiving. A dark brown opaque pour with a small beige head. A rich malt nosethat also has a bit of fig. The flavor is also chock full of malt. Some light anise, muskiness, applesauce, nuts, and molasses. It was served too cold and I have no doubt more complexity would have emerged. It seems to be almost hop free.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft at the bottleworks. Pours a clear dark brown with minimal head. Aroma of caramel, roasted nuts and a little toffee. Medium bitter taste with some nice caramel notes. Medium bodied with a thick texture. Soft carbonation and a long finish. Overall, I love this beer...so much that I brought a growler back with me so I can drink it again when I get home.
