3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft from Brewery. Served in a tulip glass, the bartender created a nearly perfect pour with the inch thick off-white head touching the brim of the glass, above its medium brown body. This brew has a sweet, almost milk chocolate nose. On the hoppy side for a doppelbock, this beer is nicely balanced, smooth and warming. Very tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Candied fruit dominates this silky Doppelbock, licked by alcohol warmth and mild bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam drapes the clear red.
-The fruitiness is a bit too present for my tastes in Doppelbock. Bready, caramelized cereals are sadly too shy.
-The finish is balanced.
-This one lacks malt depth for the style, which is surprising since most Two Roads beers I’ve had, even the Pils, was very well developed on the malt front.
