12oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours brown with a light beige head. Aroma of caramel and nutty malts with hints of toffee and chocolate plus light hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, but not the best of the style.

Pours bright mahogany into a stem glass. Off white head recedes leaving no lacing to coat surface. Plum and chocolate aromas. Soft with chocolate-covered pit fruit front to back. Thin lasting dusty finish.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cool.
Aroma: Hazelnut, cocoa, basically this smells like Ferrero Rochers smell. Awesome stuff!
Appearance: Translucent red/orange. Even with an aggressive pour, no real head.
Taste: Hazelnut, coffee, dark, dark chocolate. Some fruit. A mild soy sauce-y flavor. Bittersweet.
Palate: Rich. Medium body; nice presence, but not oppressive. Flavors linger a little bit.
Overall: A lot better than what I was expecting! Really nice aroma and flavors going on here; not your typical caramel-y / malty doppelbock. The 8% abv creeps up on you! Really enjoyed this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2nd bottle at the Circle D. Pours a clear amber with minimal head that quickly dissipates. Prominent roasted malt and mild caramel notes. A little boozy. Moderate carbonation, medium bodied. Mildly sweet up front with mild bitterness in the finish. Pretty good dopplebock.
