Pours with a dark ruddy complexion. Head is dingy looking. Aroma is sweet and malty. Robust flavor. Flavors consist of roasted malts with a bit of chocolate. Seems kind of thick going down. Very good dopple. Alcohol is very well hidden.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with ruby highlights. Head is mountainous and pretty creamy. Falls quickly. Not impressed with this ones "style".
Nose is full of clove spicyness, alcohol, orange, toasted malts and a little banana.
Great Flavor. Banana, almond, caramel, molasses, coffee, cinnamon, sweet malts, toasted malts and other spices. Somewhat herbal. Very good tasting Doppelbock. I enjoyed this one and would like to revisit it soon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear chestnut color with a taller ecru head. Mild aromas of malt and caramel with a hint of dark fruit. Lighter feel, slightly coating. Flavors of caramel coated fruit, including raisins and hint of figs. Lacks a bit in the depth department.
Sure thought I rated this before.
