3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 Bottle. Moderate roasted, caramel and cereal for the malt, faint grass for the hops, light to moderate broth and dough for the yeast, with wood, smoke, brown sugar and bourbon in the background. Head is average size, frothy, beige with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is deep dark burgundy. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic, and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, a little syrupy with a soft to lively carbonation and a sticky finish.16 This Doppelbock has everything true the style, nice meaty and sweet tastes and aromas.

Pour is a thick, murky syurpy brown with no head at all. Aroma is a nice brown sugar covered plum with some raison and treacle. Flavor is a nice pumpernickel black bread, dark fruit and toffee. Like a liquid tootsie roll. Very rich and nuanced with multiple flavors playing over each other. I have not checked my ratings but this has to be the best dopplebock Iíve ever had. So rich with dark fruit and brown sugar.

Plum wine, caramel cake batter aroma - sweet, vinous, vanilla, nice. Standard longneck, swamp water ruby-brown beer. Fruity - plums, raisins, dates. A little metal, vanilla wash. Body goes a little wobbly and watery in the middle. Quite good. New Leaf Market.

Duck Rabbit is never bad. This has the brown sugar and raisins youíd expect from a doppelbock, very slight coffee in the finish. A little sweet.

I am a real fan of this brewery, never had a bad beer from it, and this is definitely no exception! Pours a dark thick almost syrupy amber, with a thin lacy tan head. The aroma is extremely pleasant and that of roasted coffee beans, malted chocolate and dates. Taste is both pleasant and shocking, definitely wakes up the taste buds with touches of malted chocolate, dark chocolate covered cherries or chocolate covered coffee beans. Many different flavors all at once,a bit sweet, a bit sour, a bit overpowering yet pleasant. Trace of dark alcohol such as a brandy. finishes nicely leaving a full palate, ending a bit sweet but also a bit dry. Definitely a good beer!

4 oz. pour, on tap at Duckworthís in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. Consumed on 9-22-15. Pours an amber / medium brown with taupe head. Very nice appearance. Pitted fruit and chocolate scents. Really nice, caramel, toffee taste. Sophisticated flavors. Perhaps a bit sweeter than ideal but that is quibbling; itís quite good. One of the best doppelbocks Iíve had. Delicious. A touch of booze in the flavor. Sawdust finish. Medium body. Lively but not particularly crisp in the palate.
