12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a very thin tan head. The aroma is incredibly rich malt, including chocolate and caramel. There is also a scent of dark fruits such as plum. The taste follows the nose. I’m surprised by how light it feels on the mouth; I was expecting something richer based on the aroma. Doppelbocks tend to be a bit to rich for my tastes, but this certainly isn’t bad.

Sweet fruity aroma, dark fruits. Rich maltiness too. Tastes extremely malty, but the palate is quite light. Goes down remarkably easily. Malts almost kvassy. A malt overload - nicey-nice!

Nothing spectacular but a good decent beer. ABV is 7.6% which is good. Although I prefer an 8.0% or higher. Nevertheless, has a good taste to it.

Sits great on the tongue. Nice dark color with a roasted flavor. It’s fairly high in alcohol so that never hurts, right?

Tap (PiwPaw Beer Heaven, Warszaw). Clear dark copper color with nice red hue. Malty, sweet, fruity and lightly jammy in aroma. Fruity, prunes, metallic, earthy, yeasty in taste. Sweet and some caramel in aftertaste. Watery sweet mouthfeel. Average brew.

Very nice beer.. Id say medium body, easy to drink. Flavorful and bold but well balanced. Some bitters and good sweet roast but not very. Beer was easy to go down, will drink again.

I have to say that I’m a little disappointed in this one, probably because all the other dopplebocks I’ve had this winter have been very good. This one is just OK. Bottle into Chimay chalice, some foam, quickly gone. It’s a pretty deep ruby-brown, but transparent. Aroma of dark malt and bread. It’s a bit thin on the tongue, flavor is malty and sweet with some hop bitterness and a prickly carbonation... slightly medicinal. Not one I will go back to.
