Average sized off-white head. It’s a deep amber in color. There was a fairly strong sweet odor after I poured it, but then diminished to just a light sweet smell. Initial flavor is quite sweet the finish is light bitterness. I did not taste as much alcohol as I expected.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slight citrus on the nose. Wimpy head but a beautiful rich color. Characteristic chewy, pruny doublebock with lively carbonation. Very malty.

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.

12oz bottle- pours a nice reddish color. Sweet malt noted on both aroma and palate. Smooth and very drinkable. No bitterness noted. A good beer just not spectacular or complex.

This is a great Doublebock, truly a beer in the style, not to heavily hoped, the nice and rich aroma gets your mouth watering for the first sip. this is more drinkable than other darker doublebocks that i have had.

amber in color, very little white head. The sweet flavor masks the alcohol. and has a very smooth finish.

Bottle pours amber... again with the troegs, head dissapates quickly. cant taste the high alc% on this one until the bottom. Sweet flavor with a touch of somethin that reminds me of a kind of tart fruit... maybe black cherry or grape

Good hop malt balance. Body is a little lacking. Finish is clean. An enjoyable beer overall.

Nice amber pour with lots of flavors bouncing around. The drawback may be there are a few too many. Deceivingly strong based on the flavor.
