Wow! A pleasent surprise. My first brew from this brewery. Have to be careful with this one. Taste so good you forget about the 8.2. And that my friend will cause you a world of hurt.

This is a very sweet and malty beer with hints of cherry and caramel. Lots of booze and borderline syrup but surprisingly drinkable. No lacing, odd color. Definitely not a classic dopplebock, nor a great one. But good nonetheless.

Bottle. Poured a warm amber-brown color with minimal head. Great sweet aroma that follows through in the taste. Malt flavor really comes through for bit of extra sweetness up front and then a nice, warm finish.

In a word: Delicious. An excellent doppelbock: sure it’s a bit sweet, but again, it’s a doppelbock.

The beer had a dark brown hazy color. The taste was carmel, malt, bread, some yeast, and kind of nut flavor at the finish. The taste of the beer is ok, and the body was medium/creamy. I also found this to be a little overly-sweet which seemed to make the beer "heavier" to me. Although the flavor was good, it was hard for me to finish because of this perceived heaviness.

Aroma is rather subtle for the odd flavor. Flavor is someone odd and almost wood-like but rich and robust. Aftertaste is a little dissappointing; almost seems like it leaves a bitter film embedded on the back of your tongue.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber red, head disappears quickly. On the heavy side with a sweet roasted caramel flavor. Better for colder days, a bit heavy for my taste.

If you like doublebocks then you will enjoy this beer. It is very easy to drink for a beer over 8%.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from zathrus13. Reddish amber colored with light beige foam that stickes to the glass. Interesting malty aroma with caramel and bready notes. Toasted and roasted flavors with some bitterness but somewhat it is lacking maltiness as I am use to in dopplebocks. This beer start strong but leave you on your appetite. I am little disapointed with its flavors. Thanks Jeff!

This would be a lot better is the alcohol content were reduced to around 5-5.5%. AVB
