COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This award winning doppelbock (8.2% alcohol by volume) lager is brewed with a generous supply of Munich, carapils, caramel and chocolate malts and is fermented with Bavarian lager yeast. The resulting caramel sweetness and rich mouthfeel are complimented by the mild bittering of German Hallertau hops. 1997 Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal Winner

Dark copper/brown color. Head was thin. Aroma of sweet malt. Passable. Lacks any real depth. Sorta like my wife.

Nice caramel aroma. Body is like liquid caramel...a little on the sweet side. Not my favorite doppelbock.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 Malty as all hell. High ABV is decently hidden. Enjoy, but be careful. A malthead’s delight.
