Pours dark amber/red. Aroma caramel and bread. Taste of caramel malts, butterscotch and roasted malt. Full bodied sweet, with little bitterness. Finish, lingering malty, bready sweetness. Alcohol slightly apparent. Great example of a Double Bock from my favorite brewer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa, umich03jm. Thanks man! Pours a deep ruby/garnet color with a thick white head. Aroma of rich caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Figs, plums, raisins, dark and dried fruits. Flavor is robust, rich, dark fruits and caramel notes. Dry, only very mild hints of sweetness, and a mild hop presence. Thick and chewy palate. Mild sweetness in the finish. This is a standout example of the style.

Pours an orangy copper red with a very thin, off white head that persists for a while. Smells of loads of malts, with some caramel tingly. It taste of large amount of malt as well as some other bready and caramel notes, it is amazing.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent aroma full of plums. No hops noticeable on the nose. The appearance is a dark amber brown with an off white head with good head retention. The beer is crystal clear. Flavor wise, it's super malty with lots of melanoidin complexities. Hop flavor is minimal per style. Alcohol warmth is noticeable but smooth in character. The mouthfeel is full and smooth like a milk shake. Overall, it's one of my favorite Dopplebocks. Malty and smooth.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 Bottle. Good looker, but surprisingly light tasting for its style and ABV. I don’t especially like the syrupy ones, but this doesn’t really bring the malt.

a decent example of the style, not nearly as astringent as it could have been. nice if it was less sweet, less rock candy and brown sugar, but still good for what it is.
