Bottle to shaker glass, pour clear deep amber red, one finger, quick off light tan head. No lacing, no retention. Aroma toffee and burnt malt. Taste is very sweet, no much bitterness to speak of. Medium body, under carbonated, sticky mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of prune, caramel, burnt sugar, alcohol not well hidden even at just 7.2%. Average at best.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle in a paired tasting with Leinenkugel’s Big Butt Dopplebock.
Like the Leinenkugel Big Butt Dopplebock, the aroma is more appealing than the flavor.
Feel: medium-ful body with medium-low carbonation.
O: compared to the Leinenkugel, this is more traditional, with a notably higher ABV, less caramel malt, and more bitterness. Overall, I preferred the Leinenkugel Big Butt.

Clear brown pour with ring of khaki head. Sweet toffee and plum nose followed by flavorful notes of raisin bread, pepper, prunes, and more toffee. finishes slightly hot with twinge of medicinal/bandaid on the tail end, but not enough to be bothered by. Decent doppel.
