Very dark ruby. Faint head. Very good malt nose. Tons of malt in this one. Very nice. Maybe the best American dopplebock I have ever had. Very impressive.

On tap at Stone Soup, Landrum, SC I tend to favor local beers whenever I get the chance; TC definitely qualifies as a local brewery for me. Of the three I sampled (Amber, Doppelbock, and Pilsner) at dinner, the Doppel (excuse me, DOPPLE)bock was my favorite. It served as a stand-alone dessert after a great meal, but would pair nicely with good chocolate and ice cream, for certain. It would also be a winner with anything blackened (catfish, even). Not too sweet, not too bitter, a good balance. Definite coffee notes abouind. A nice, oily finish stands out in my memory.

Bottle pours deep mahogany color, nearly opaque. Aroma of sweet malt, chocolate, roasted malt, sweet coffee. Flavor is huge roasted and chocolate malt with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Very robust flavor with a long, coffee, nut and roasty finish. Fits the profile of "liquid bread" very nicely.

Nearly black, deep brown colored brew with a light brown tinted head. The nose has some sweet caramel and peanuts. Milk chocolate hints come through. A strong note of toffee and dark chocolate in the mouth. A little bit of dark chocolate and some cherries follow throughout. A nicely made beer.

Had on tap at Stogies and Stouts. Maybe I was off, but I loved this beer. It was my favorite of the evening, actually. Flavor was rich, roasted nuts, carmalized sugar, and some milk chocolate. Easily drinkable. I loved it!

Pours a rusty red brown color. Aroma is caramelly, slightly buttery, toasty, and nuts. Tastes of caramel, toast, chocolate, and sweet toasted nuts. Slick medium bodied mouthfeel, slightly sticky. Pretty nice I thought.
