Thanks to Skyview. This rating may be skewed because the beer is slightly frozen and I skimmed the ice out. Rich caramel color with no head. Butterscotch nose. Taste is strong malt with butterscotch and lactose.

Beautiful appearance, no head whatsoever but beautiful none the less. The flavor is decent. Complex overall yet not my preference for a dopple bock. Truely well brewed.
