Very mellow, a well rounded beer that tastes a little like au jus (but i mean that in a positive way - sweet and savory)-which could be why it goes so well with steak and roast beef. A great picnic beer, but if you wanna buy a 6?er good luck finding one in America and if you do its probably gonna cost you a pretty penny. Its a beer you have with special meaty meal and that?s about it. Doesn’t impress as much on its own.

A solid malty dopplebock. It's got body, an array of malts, mineral content some European funk and a hint of chocolate.

MiamiBarman (26) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Dark copper color with a full, tan head that left lacing on the side of the glass. The aroma releases caramel, butterscotch, and just a hint of fresh coffee. The malts are delicious and rich but not overly sweet at all, and the beer itself doesn’t seem heavy-bodied at all. Great beer for breakfast!

Pours a dark brown with off-white head. Earthy aromas and spices on the nose. Bready, hints of banana and molasses, lots of spice. A really nice doppelbock.

The body has a dark brown color with lighter brownish red highlights. On top sits a nice light tan head which was about two fingers thick right after it was poured. This head slowly fades but hangs on till the last sip, (not that it took me long it get there lol). There was some nice slick lacing, as well, which slid right down the glass as I drank. The aroma is pleasing and sweet with notes of dark sweet bread, cooked or burnt sugar, as well as some mellow notes of over ripe fruit and classic German hops. It has a firm, slick, full bodied palate with a flavor profile that matches its aroma. The flavor is full dark sweet bready malty goodness. There are some hints of nuts and fruit mixed into the mostly sweet malt along with some decent leafy/spicy, almost earthy hops for balance. The hops also add a nice balance to the finish making it quite drinkable.
