Pours a deep copperish brown pour, with a Small beige head. Aroma is very rich bready caramel malt. The taste is sweet with some toasted malt flavor and hints of vanilla, dark fruit and baked bread. Chewy mouth feel. some spicy hops in the finish but not overbearing. Very tasty and true to the Doppelbock style.

Pours a nice Carmel brown with low carbonation. Head settles quickly to a ring. Bready malts and finishes with a little cherry? Nice body. Bought it because I heard it won a medal at GABF. Way to go fellow Pennsylvanian.

Pours a rich reddish chestnut brown with a decent, finely-bubbled yellow-white head that fades rapidly to a rim and partial coating. Aroma is sweet chalky malts - nuts, bread, caramel. Taste follows suit with toffee, dark fruits, a well-hidden warming alcohol and a touch of cherry. I appreciate a good doppelbock - and this is a very good one. Yum.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep caramel/ruby red color with a tan head. Not getting an aroma other than a heavy scent of malt. Full bodied, taste leans heavy on the malt. Sweet finish. Great beer!

BOD 8/13/14. Beautiful clear dark amber pour that has a heavy dose of dark ruby making it almost red. Normal head, lacing and slightly below normal retention. Light nose of caramel malt with bread undertones coupled with a light alcohol note. As it warms, dark fruit notes (fig, raisin, plum) are noted. Full bodied with a rich creamy texture. Normal carbonation with a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is well balanced and complex. It begins with a bready malt that flows into the dark fruit notes. In the middle, caramel sweetness comes forward then yields to a mild hop bitterness. The finish is where the alcohol becomes a bit unhidden as the other flavors fade.
